    I took those pics while I was waiting for the first coat to be almost dry so I could apply the second coat. In the pic it's still somewhat wet.
    When it dries, it will be a little less glossy.
    In the pic of the tranny tunnel, that POR is already dried - I did it a while back.
    That's semi-gloss black, BTW.

    Wow, how much did that (POR-15) run?

    Did you do it with one gallon?

    How did you prep the body? Did you strip it down to the metal?

    TIA

    I have previously bought a 6-pack of semi-gloss black, and that is what I used. It's not really that expensive.
    I also used the Marine Clean cleaner and the Metal Ready primer. They are highly recommended for doing the job right.
    The prep was pretty time consuming. I bought two different chemical strippers and still had to use quite a bit of 40 grit sandpaper.
    I took as much of it down to bare metal as possible. POR bonds best to seasoned metal, so I tried to add grooves to it with the coarse grit sandpaper and then let it rust some. You should have seen my neighbor's face. I was spending so much time sanding the inside and then I just let it all rust. LOL, he's a mustang guy he doesn't get it.
    I would like to have spent more time on the prep work so I could be assured of maximum adhesion, but it's one of those projects that you need to finish within in a reasonable amount of time or enthusiasm wanes.

    I don't think it's thick enough....lol. Looks like it will hold up well. I wish I had enough floorboard left to por, haha.
