    I went back and did a search and read all of the post about liner coating (dupli-color, rhinolining, etc..) I still would like to here what everyone has tried and what they thought of it. I have my frame off and am just about done sandblasting it. I was planning to go with POR-15, for the frame. Then some sort of lining for the inner and outter floor boards. Has any one used any of this POR-15? is it worth it? And which coating should I use. Will one gallon of Rhinolining be enough to do both outter and inner floors? I am also curious about dupli-color does it work just as well as the rest? I am so confused to manny options. Thanks guys...

    The problem here is that not very many, if any, people have used more than one kind. I've used the dupli color,, how is it? I don't know,, I have nothing to compare it to. It hasn't fallen off, so that would be a good thing,, but I haven't had it out wheeling yet, brushing up against tree limbs, etc..... so I have no idea how "tough" it is.
    I've never even heard of the POR-15 until the other day. I've never even seen another kind of "do it yourself" applied or the results of it.

    por 15 is the [censored] for your frame just remeber its all in the prep work for a durable finish. you could also use and epoxy based polyurathane out of a spraygun for extremly sweet results.

    Peace,love,and 4wd is all you need

    Por15....

    I am about to blast my frame and paint it with Por15. A friend of mine (Troy) painted his frame with it http://www.troybaker.com/62stepside. He said it is very tough. He said he was "marking" a line on the frame with an awl and it wouldn't scratch it. He ended up painting his gas tank, inner fenders and core support with. As I understand, it takes a grinder to get this stuff off.
    Here is more links to discussions about it on another Chevy forum:
