    What is POR? I thought it was the Pirate 4x4 bullitin board, but apparently, I'm wrong.

    POR-15 =
    Paint
    Over
    Rust

    and yes it also means pirates4x4 as they used to be called
    Pirates
    Of the
    Rubicon

    but that is the club name and the website went beyond the club a bit

    Thanks guys.

    Speaking of POR-15, that stuff is terrible. It's peeled off everything I've used it on. Anyone else?

    Had no problem with it. Needs to be prepped right, using their stuff. Doesn't adhere to paint, only metal.

    There are two ways of referring to the pirate4x4.com.

    One is PBB and the other POR. I go by POR.

    I don't see too many people saying POR to the undercoating stuff unless they add the 15 after it.
    So don't confuse POR for POR-15. Most of us say POR is the PBB site. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    never had a problem with POR-15. You just need to follow directions Exactly for best results. I tried cutting some steps too. Like not cleaning the surface. Or not applying multiple coats. I learned the hard way!

    They have, or had, a road rally in Michigan with POR initials. Stood for Press-On-Regardless.
