Yep! I have made several posts about their products the past couple months. Thats a pretty big area will be interesting to see how it turns out. They make a good product and you will find no other filler that will do as good a job as POR products. Their Gas tank sealer and steering wheel kit are awesome. Their paint if left on your skin and it drys you will wear it for 5-7 days! Nothing on this earth will take it off short of a belt sander. And it drys harder and faster on humid days than dry days! its some wicked stuff!

No sorry to say I dont think the color will match B) The stuff is tuff tho and it fills imperfections like pits in the metal and can be brushed on. The bad part is you will need to apply a top coat because POR-15 is UV sensitive what it does do tho it will seal the rust and it has TEETH that will bite in on what you apply it to.

Oh and they have good engine and manifold enamels that are good for exhaust pipes and hold up well under high heat conditions. A bit pricey but good stuff! :whistle:

B) idiot time.... so where does one purchase POR-15 products? common auto parts places like AutoZone, Checker or Napa? How about hardware stores... Hardware Hank, Tru-Value or Ace? Farm and Home stores... Fleet Farm, Farm & Fleet, Big R? Is it only available through their website/catalog? :whistle:

Jason you will need to purchase POR products off of their website by CC.

I am Mechanical Systems Manager For My County and am based Out Of The Sheriifs Dept / Jail were I am also Jail Maintenance Manager. We just refurbished the water basins in our Cooling Tower where thousands of gallons of water run through them each day. Needless to say they were about rusted apart after 13 years of service. Were were able to coat them with POR rustomotive products and saved the county the cost of a new cooling tower which would have costed $ 80,000.00. I have used these products myself over the years. Will post some pictures later of projects I have done. B)

Here's a link to POR-15's site.

Looks like some pretty good stuff although kind of a pain it has to be ordered.

Guess I'm old fashioned & like to have an item in my hands when I pay for it. B)

Hey everyone I'm new to the forum and don't have much experience with WH, BUT I restore cars and do use a lot of POR-15 products. If anyone decides to use their paint products to cover both rusted can clean metal areas be sure to buy the acid etching spray. It changes the rust white and allows the paint to adhere better to both the rust and more importantly bare metal. Also there is a little warning label on the spray bottle that "recommends" you wear a respirator...trust me you want to wear one. That being said I remember seeing cans of light grey POR-15 and I am thinking about using it as a primer for the paint job on the 603 I just picked up. I personally have never brushed it on but I've heard that it will smooth itself out before drying.

Have fun,
