    Just ordered POR 15, putty, metal ready and marine clean. Is this stuff as good as it claims to be. I was going to part out my '88 and swap the the drivetrain to my '90 but the '90 is to pretty to wheel and over the years I've become too attached to the '88 both emotionally and financially. So now I can go hardcore on the '88 and keep the '90 as a daily driver. Any tips on this product?

    DON'T get it on your skin! It has to wear off and will not wash off. Trust me I know! Were gloves, the brush you use will be garbage after por gets on it so use a brush that you can toss out. It goes on like a stain so alot goes along way!
    Great stuff! Good luck

    I didn't think it was thin at all! Certainly not overly thick, but it wasn't like water. I used a brush, and just put it on relatively thin coats, so it wouldn't run.

    seriously, pick up some rubber gloves for use. I actually picked up a set of those thick rubber ones, with the cotton lining. Enough feel for painting, and they won't rip or make your hands sweat like the surgical gloves. Just as a tip...less than a box of surgical gloves anyways.

    well first of I didn't think it was thin... just kinda paint like consistency. Secondly, I'll just say that putty stuff is absolutely awsome.... I used mine up by the door handle on my drivers side... worked absolutly awsome!
