Chassis Painting with POR-15

POR15 is one of the best friends for your chassis restoration.

‘RestoMotive Laboratories’ restoration products are designed to work as a complete system. When used together, these products provide you with a coating that will not only stop rust, but will protect it from returning.

Here is how the system works:

Degrease and Clean surface
Remove all flaky rust with a wire brush and even an angle grinder with a wound wire wheel on the end.  Clean the rusty metal surface with MARINE-CLEAN degreaser/cleaner. An environmentally safe cleaner, MARINE-CLEAN will remove dirt, grease, wax or other contaminants that could interfere with the restoration.

Neutralize rust; Etch metal
Prepare the rusty metal surface with METAL-READY. As a rust remover, METAL-READY will neutralize rust, etch metal for better adhesion, and coat the metal with zinc phosphate to encourage deep chemical bonding of POR-15 to the base metal and rust.

Apply rust preventive coating to surface
Seal the rusty metal with POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating. As the moisture resistant POR-15 bonds to the rusty metal, it will form an unbelievably tough, almost ceramic-like finish that will not crack, chip or peel.

Topcoat the surface
Topcoat the metal surface with CHASSICOAT BLACK. The semi-gloss black CHASSICOAT BLACK. provides the frame, chassis or underbody finish desired by most restorers as it protects the underlying POR-15 from harmful UV light.

POR-15 is available from many local suppliers and on line at
