I mechanically stripped my frame via sanding, wire wheels, and a needle scaler (for the tight spots.) It’s pretty **** clean, but not perfect. There are plenty of rust pits I’m unable to get to, and tight spots I can’t quite reach. That means there’s still a little rust in spots.
I’m not sure where to go from here…
POR-15 : Maybe too clean for that. I read it needs rust to stick to. Problems with peeling when applied to bare metal?
EW Rust Converter : Same here, I think it needs rust.
EW Rust Encapsulator : May be good option. Don’t know how it preforms on bare metal. Prime and paint over? What type of primer?
Chassis Saver : Similar to POR-15 I think. Rust required?
Some kind of etching product, followed by epoxy paint?
Maybe even a white vinegar wipe down?…I have seen people suggest this.
What are your thoughts and opinions on any of these options, or if you have any other suggestions/products that you’ve had success with.
Thanks for your input.
