    Okay this may be a redundant question; Where can I get POR-15 and will the mesh work for holes? Or is it only good for surface rust?

    Does it keep the rust from returning? Can it be sanded and painted to match the rest of the vehicle?

    I only ask because I would rather repair the small holes rather than cut and weld in replcament pieces. First it would be easier on me and second I am hoping it would be less expensive.

    Has anyone used it on the exterior and painted over it?

    I don't have any literature with me, but it seems that they sell a paint that is designed to overcoat the rust preventative paint and be a base to be painted over with laquer or enamel. I've used the rust preventative paint and overcoated it with their chassis coat with good results.

    I haven't patched any holes but their web site has a lot of useful info that may answer your other questions. I've e-mailed them questions and usually had a response the next day.

    I can't decide if I should go ahead and replace the panels or try to repair them. The interior is only rusted in the corners by the kick panels, near the seem. I will probably just replace them....

    I just got my por-15 and I am going to put it on my rocker panels. I e-mailed them and they said to give it a thin coat, let it dry put on another coat wait until it is tacky ( almost dry)
    and put primer on over it. then sand and paint it. I'm going to do this in a week or so, we will see how it turns out.

    ijust saw the mesh used on wakedogs truck so any questions on that could be directed to him. I have painted over POR15 before... you'll need their special primer... it is pretty easy and comes out great. I also like the Puddy... that stuff works excellent!

    You didn't say where you were in GA, but if its near Atlanta you can get it from Year One and not pay shipping.

    Don't know how much shipping is, but YearOne is $7 more on the Paint and $9 more on the Blackcoat and Chassiscoat than Quadratec

    I have pics of the por-15 w/ mesh at my site, www.bigredjimmy.iwarp.com
    It worked great, iused to patch some pretty large holes on the gas tank filler cover on the inside, the biggest gole was probably like 3-4 inches in diameter.

    <font color=purple> I talked to a guy out of Chicago at Imperial Restorations ........ I got the info from e-mailing the POR web site .......The # in Chicago is 1-800-576-5822 ........ If any of you local Twin Cities guys knows a better place, Please let me know through a PM before I get it from these guys if it will be quicker than 3 days ............ Also, I asked how it would be to go over my rear floor from GM and they said it might not adhere to the blackish primer the floor comes in ..........has anybody else done this with good results or should extra work be done on the floor to make it work ? Any input from you guys would be greatly appreciated ........ One more thing, How much would be enough to cover the frame, the floor and the inner fenders ????

    Hey Riz, call the number I posted in a couple replies up. Its in California, but its an 800 number. I'm tellin' ya, this lady answered EVERYTHING. She is VERY knowledgable about this product. She says bare metal would be better than the paint on the frame and wheel wells. She said if I'm not going to take them to bare metal, to get some TSP (cleaner you can buy at home depot) and clean it with that and a Scotch Brite pad to clean and scuff it up a little. Like I said I was on the phone with her for a good 30 minutes, really informative about application procedures, how each version of POR-15 is different and so on. Her and her husband sell it and use it all the time. CALL HER RIZ!!![​IMG] Let me know if you do, and tell me what you thought. Late.
