    I have my frame off my car and wire brushed down to bare metal. I am going to use POR 15 to coat it. Does it need to be primed or prepped in any way or will a straight coat work? I havn't used this product before.

    Thanks

    Bare metal needs to be prepped with marine clean and metal ready.
    Rusted metal , just marine clean.

    Would it not bond properly if just painted on the bare metal?

    The metal needs to be prepped as stated above or it will not bond properly.

    i've had success with just making sure all grease etc is off the metal...cleaning with laundry soap or acetone works well for this. As long as you have clean, grease free, non shiny metal it will stick.

    oh...if you do not want to pay a fortune for the metal ready,

    get the metal clean of all grease

    spray on a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water and let it flash rust

    then neutralized with baking soda/water

    let dry and then apply your POR

    No kidding. $130 for 2 quarts is ridiculous. I'm sure I could have got it cheaper online but with shipping I would have been close anyway.

    go to the por15 site and get the directions!


    2 quarts is enough to paint a battle ship.

    http://www.stoprust.net/ this place used to give us a discount, just mention nastyz. not sure if they still do. get a 6-pack of 4 oz cars, that is the best way to go.
