Hello,

Decided to start addressing some slight surface rust on the rear subframe today, didn't take any before pictures because the rust wasn't really bad but wanted to get it sorted before the weather turns again.

So the process was to wire brush the worst of the rust off and I then applied 2 coats of Jenolite rust converter which neutralises the rust.

Next I applied 3 coats of Bonda rust primer with zinc to further protect from rust.

Finished pics applied 2 coats of por 15 chassis coat as per a few recommendations.

Great looking job there,

I was planning doing mine over the winter but thought on taking it off and getting powder coated maybe

Thanks, that's the best solution to the problem really, tbh the finish I got on the primer surprised me as it is quite smooth so don't want to ruin it with a lumpy looking top coat.

Literally just been looking at por 15 on youtube and seems a great long lasting top coat and seems to go on well, hopefully they have it in a satin or matt black so might give that a go.

I used pot 15 on the inner arches of my sisters shogun. Lasted substantially better than the factory paint and looked pretty smooth.

Great effort so far looking forward to seeing the end result.

My advice is if you can that is remove and get it blasted then powder coated.
But also apply acf 150.

+1 for Frosts, the other consideration is the inside edges/cavities, which will need some Dinitrol (other products may be available...)

Thanks for the advice everyone, used the por 15 chassis coat as suggested and it came out well and looks a little neater until it can be powder coated, pics added to the 1st post.
