    I have tested the 3m undercoating before, its good stuff buy it doesn't dry. It will stay kinda gummy, and dirt sticks to it. To clean the dirt off you need a pressure washer, and it takes the undercoating off too. The bed liner drys good and is hard as a rock.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    I get under my truck every year or two to check for rust. If I find some, I'll sand to the frame and repaint with black chassis paint. That's about as cheap as you can go.
    You can also try that rubberized spray, have used it once and worked great. Also could try por-15.

    so i look up por-15. does it allow you to paint directly over the rust without removing it?

    last year i had my whole underside of my truck undercoated at uniglass ziebart in saint john, i knew the manager so he hooked me up with a 400$ undercoating job for only 99$. but for touchups i use rubberized bedliner spray, that stuff works great. i always clean the area before spraying but it adheres really well either way.

    por-15 says that for the paint to preform weel it must be applied in temps above 65. Well i live in and the temp never gets above 40. so has anyone every used por-15 under 65?
