Here in Canada rust paint (tremclad brand Canadian version of rustoleum) is allowed to be oil based because it's considered a specialty paint from what I've read. (Not sure if it's oil based in the states also). 2 summers ago when changing my leaf springs I painted under the brackets using it and it dried really hard and has held up well. My question is would I be able to paint the whole underside of my car after cleaning off all the old undercoat? Do I need to worry about a flash point of the paint cause of the exhaust system or would that not be hot enough. Alot of guys will recommend POR15 but tremclad paint is not costly and would be very easy to touch up over time and my car is a driver. Any info would be appreciated, thanks.
