: is por 15 worth the $$$. that stuff costs more per gallon than i paid for the jeep. for those that have used it how did you apply it? also what have you guys used on your frames? i have been thinking about getting it powder coated. i talked to a guy that could media blast it down to the white and powder coat it for about $550.

Just another vote for Por15. I just recently used it on my 48 2A frame an misc. parts. I decided to skip the media blast and, on the advice of the Por15 folks, just Marine Cleaned and powerwashed about 3 times to remove stubborn grime. Also used the Metal Ready just as instructed. I apply all my Por15 using cheap brushes which I toss after use. Make absolutely sure that your frame is totally dry before application. This stuff cures via moisture from the air, but too much too soon, and the stuff just flakes off. I bought a gallon, and after two coats on the frame (+ chassis coat black) and two coats on several other small parts, I still have a half gallon left. This stuff goes on like silk and goes a long way. The frame looks incredible! If you do go the Por15 way, I don't think you will be dissappointed at all.
Good Luck!
