    I'll second POR...

    Spray painted my battery tray, in short order it was covered in that white powdery crap. Painted it with POR about a year ago, nothing. Painted the front frame rails in my car, even at the edges, I couldn't break it off with my fingernail.

    Where do you get this POR15 stuff? Can it be used as regular paint?
