I have not used this brand. While their info claims theirs is the best, I would have to test it myself.

I have used other products which cost less and are sprayed on. So far I have had good success stopping and preventing rust on the under panels and side pieces under door panels.

I've been pretty satisifed with a spray-on product from Rustoleum called Rust Reformer. I did use some media-blasting wherever I could before application....that will absolutely cut the rust. In places where I could not reasonably blast, I wire-brushed or sanded before applying Rust Reformer. It seems to be holding up well and costs no more than a can of Rustoleum spray paint.

Website has a very well documented video side by side test with Rustoleum
products..interesting. Hard for me to call Rust Bullet snake oil..

I called company today about which application to go with "standard-gold" or "automotive". For the underpanels etc..they recommended
standard". I ordered the six shooter pack...that way I can do segments of panels with fresh stuff.

We'll see..

At $10.99 for 1/4 pint, it ought too be good!!

What does that work out to per spoonful?

That's awfully pricey. I have a "homebrew" recipe for some stuff that is supposed to be as good as POR-15. The recipe came from a professional auto body shop.

Lorna.

Would you able to share the recipe or is it confidential?

Thanks,

I got this off a bus forum. Two Dogs ran a body shop. POR-15 is the rust preventative of choice on the Bus boards where the bus conversions not only start out older than most "sticks-&-staples" RVs but also last decades longer too.

Two Dogs' Homebrew Alternative to POR-15

Using a grinder, knock off loose rust and brush with a wire brush.

Mix together 1 part fiberglass resin (no hardener added), 1 part black enamel, 1 part lacquer thinner. Work in small batches as working time is only 30 minutes.

Ambient temperatures should be 60 degrees F or warmer.

If it is going to be exposed to the sun, cover with a coat of paint in 3 days.
