    I used the spray can stuff from Checker on my Jimmy. It works okay. It's a little messy though. I don't have to worry about rust in AZ. I put it on for appearence and ease of cleaning. It hasn't worn out yet.(2yrs) Oh ya, I used the DuPont stuff on my Dad's F*rd and I liked it better then the cheap stuff. It sprayed easier, and ended up looking alot nicer then the cheap stuff I used on my Jimmy.

    I am using POR 15. I sprayed my rear axle with that undercoating and I'm not too impressed with it.

    I used POR-15 on my rear axle and rear calipers, it isnt as tuff as it is rumored to be. I had the calipers painted for 3 weeks and when I installed them and started bleeding the brakes the POR started coming off. I stripped and used Eastwoods spray (enamel i think) and it seems to be much tougher.IMO

    I used it on my gas tank skid plate and hated it. It rubs off very easily and looks like crap. Just one man's opinion.

    Next time, I'll use something else.

    Like the others said, it comes off way too easily. I used it on the inside of my doors and tailgate (at the bottom and the seams) where it won't get scratched off so it should work for my application.

    Yeah i just appied some to the front axle, springs, and steering components... it sucks.. it was messy as [censored] but looks alrite... better than worn out metal with surface rust on it... i didnt do my best to clean anyhting so i prolly trapped some dirt and [censored] under it haha. Oh well...it took me two cans to do just the front axle steering componets and springs.. i think i sprayed way too generously...
    Anyway thanks for the opinions guys

    I'm in Canada and have to worry about road salt, lotsa road salt. I hit the underneath with plenty of por15 and then thick oil coated it for added measure. Did my axles, springs etc with just por15, it looks great and it all works.

    Man, what should I use them? POR 15 comes off, undercoating gets everywhere and looks like crap, so what should I use? Regular black paint? Chassis black?

    I don't like the undercoating in a can to well..... Remember it is a rubber based product and you'll need to make sure that everything is dry befor you apply...... Use a heat gun or a hairdrier to get rid of any moisture on the metal because it will be trapped and start to rust.....Auto paint stores have industry style under coating so check with on of those.....
