And I digress......
« on: Yesterday at 08:56:38 AM »
The answers I get from the folks on this board are always prompt and more importantly accurate and understandable....of which I am very appreciative.
Sooo....bear with me on one more.
Since I have bed, bumper, and steps off my truck I'm going to have the undercarriage cleaned with a dustless blast system. What are your recommendations for coatings? Asphalt based undercoater, rubber undercoater, prime and paint, oil???
Thanks for your help.....again!!

Sherwin Williams dura plate 235. I have tried lots of different paint on the plow trucks. This stands up better than anything I have use. It's very thick and needs to be thinned a lot .to paint a frame buy a cheap under coat gun. That will put paint in places you will never reach with a brush. And paint under the cab

Like 4 x 4 says - POR 15, apply the base and the sealer coats - just be sure to wear gloves and long sleeves as it won't come off your skin until your skin comes off of you.  When you open the can you will not be impressed if you remember what you paid for the stuff, but once it's applied you will be amazed - dang tough stuff.

I never tried por 15. Some that have were not impressed. I paid 125 a gal for dura plate with the thinner. How much is por15?

The stuff I got two summers ago was $45 a quart, but it's thin and goes a long way.
