I finished up the welding on the rear window frame, and then painted it with POR15.


do you like that stuff? did they improve it? around 25 years ago i found out the hard way it only works on rusted surfaces. on bare metal without rust (sanded and degreased) you can pull it off like a skin when dry. so when you install the rear window you will easily damage the surface and make way for rust. i would have used a regular primer aplied with some heat to bake it on.



I painted the bottom, frame and floors of my 59 Dodge with POR15. I have had no problems.
But I used their Degreaser and Metal Ready when I did it.

Attaboy Bob.

Why was the POR15 not top coated with POR15 Top coat?

I will stick with POR15. Those test are always rigged anyway.

this was a long time ago, dont think por15 had a top coat but the instruction say you should top coat, these were the same spec tests.  Are you saying Rust Bullet cheated and didnt use the standardized test they stated they did?

I have used both and Rust Bullet is the better product. It goes on with alot stronger adhesion and it has a thicker consistency.  Por 15 flows a bit better but if you must do alot of scuffing roughing of the surface.

It has a smoother single coat but I always top coat.

I'm saying that I don't trust anyone's testing. Let me buy the product and try it. If it works, I will stick with it.
If it doesn't, you will never hear from me again.
I painted my 59 Dodge back in 2001. I have not had a problem. No peeling, no rust bubbles, nothing coming apart.
Like you said, that test was done along time ago. POR15, like other companies, has made improvements and some
better products. Until I see a problem, I will stick with POR15.

Boy, I sound like a commercial.

Someone from Australia is selling those stickers on ebay. You can change the word DeSoto to whatever.

I was playing with some art works.
