    Does anyone know of a good rust neutralizer? Or has anyone used the zink enriched self etching primer? I am fixing all of the surface rust and cant get into all of the nooks and crannies. I have tried the spray on kind from places like wal mart ect but I have never had good luck with it. I have already checked out por 15 and I want somthing with not so many steps and maby a little cheaper..im not looking for perfection.

    I tried some cheaper stuff and didnt have good results.
    Had a little surface rust on one of mt rockers, I cleaned it up, used some walmart pour on rust converter stuff and guess what, It did'nt keep the rust down for even 4 months! Your right, POR 15 is exspensive but it does work as advertized.

    When it comes to fighting rust...you need close to perfection or you'll be doing it again. Eastwood has "Corroless" they say works really well, plus several other products: http://www.jmartin.net/parker/goose.htm

    With por 15, applying directly to rust is ok as long as it is free of grease and dirt. If applying directly to bare metal you will need to apply metal ready. The marine clean is great for cleaning the surface. I too have tried other products and have been disappointed. Good luck in your search.

    On Trucks TV this weekend the guys mentioned something called Miracle Paint which is a rust inhibitor type of paint that they say can be applied directly to rust to stop it in it's tracks. Made by Hirsch Automotive 800-
