Chassis Rust fix

I've noted rust on the chassis steel with the undercoating starting to bubble and pop off. My limited experience was to remove visible rust and use rust-oleum, primer and paint. Another suggestion was use cold galvanize paint not familiar with it.
Any other ideas

I used POR-15 (Stop Rust with POR-15 - We Know What Permanent Means!) on a car I restored several years ago. I thought the results were pretty impressive. It's not cheap though.

Rust Reformer, just wire brush area and spray it on, works perfect and easy to do.


Everything is small stuff!

I've been using the POR-15 for marine use for decades and highly recommend it. Chuck

I am another happy POR 15 customer. Over 3 years ago I used it on my house battery drawer. It still looks great. When applied according to directions, POR 15 is great for stopping/protecting against rust and corrosion. Note: do not get POR 15 on your skin, you have to wait for it to wear off. Also, I like the little metal cans of paint because once opened, it can not be stored for later use.

X2 on POR-15, it will be the best fix for OP's problem. Wear some disposable gloves on your hands. *Anything* it gets on will be very hard to remove once dried. Lacquer thinner can clean up wet POR-15 paint. Once dry it is impervious to any solvent. So put some cardboard, drop cloths or similar under where you are painting. Brush it on, spraying is bad for your lungs. Throw brush away when done, so use the cheap brushes. Do not over-prep the surface, just wire brush loose rust off, it works best if not applied to clean metal, it needs some rusted surface for best adhesion. POR-15 is not UV stable, it will fade to flat after it goes on as gloss black if in a sun exposed area.

POR-15 is a moisture cured paint, so once the can is open, it starts to cure. That is the reason for the small cans being preferred. You can pour some out, then very diligently clean the can and lip before replacing the lid. That will save the paint, but if any paint is int he lip, it will effectively glue the lid on permanently once it dries. Some people put a layer of plastic film before the lid goes back down to help with removal.
