    I am needing an easy way to clean up my axel I will be installing soon, it is rusted of course. I dont have a sand blaster and dont ever want to move this thing again. I was thinking Naval Jelly and some rust oleum..any ideas?

    The Eastwood Company makes a product called Corroless. It's a rust stabilizer that chemically turns rust into a hard primer-like coating that's ready for paint. A little expensive, but if you do it right, you won't need to worry about rust for a LONG time.

    Hey BlazerBoy
    How much prep did you need to do before appling the POR15 to your frame?? Or do you just applyit right over the rust??
    Thanks

    They say that you at least clean up the loose rust, then apply there product called metal ready which is suppose to destroy the rust then apply the por-15. I Sand blasted my entire frame, axels, springs every thing then used there metal ready and then the por-15. I looks great, seems pretty durable, I guess we will have to see. You can spray it or brush it, just dont get it on yourself or any thing else of importance. It will never come off. hope this helps..

    I did POR 15 on my frame and entire underside of the body a year ago' still look like the day I painted it. Great stuff if you follow the directions.
