    This may be a no brainer, but whats people's opinions of rustolium....does it really work, or is it just a scam??? Also, has anyone ever used the rust neutralizer by "Mar-Hyde"???? Did it do the job or is it another false promise?

    Rustoleum $3.95 a can. Por 15 $25 and up. I sandblasted my 14FF and painted it with rustoleum it looks good and i have done some major offroading..it still looks good and it was CHEAP!!! Or use the cans of spray on bedliner if you dont want scratches to appear as ofton..my rustoleum finish is chipping a little... but did I mention it was cheap??

    POR15 converts rust to a hard finish that shouldn't ever come off unless it is painted over dirt, it seals out moisture from the metal so that rust can't form under it agian, it's expensive but if it's done right it should never have to be applied again.

    It sounds to me like rustoleum, Hammerite you can buy it at Home Depot might be your best bet. The POR stands for paint over rust, I talked with our local distributor and he said that loose rust should be sanded off but that a good surface rust is what Por should be used on so I said that I just had a bunch of parts sandblasted and he said that would be great too just not to wire wheel the areas to be painted because that would leave the surface too smooth for the piant to adhere to.
