    How much POR 15 will it take to coat my floor. I'm going from the back all the way to the firewall.

    I'm gonna use black. I have a few rough spots, just the middle of the rear floor and a 1 foot spot on the pass. floor. I'm gonna do the whole floor though.

    I just painted a frame on a Toyota with Por-15 and a little goes a long way. I didn't even use 1/4 of the can. A quart covers 96 square feet, or something like that. Make sure you dont get it on your hands!!! It doesnt come off!!!!!

    Get a quart and follow the directions. If it realy isnt rusted just leave the stock paint. You do know POR stands for Paint Over Rust? I used the silver on my forward floorpan, but left the stock paint in the bed area.

    One quart should do you.
    Two thin caots are all you'll need,If it's bare metal then use por metal ready first.
