Hi all, heard great things about POR15 but looking for opinions on spray options. I have an area on inside of rear quarters between them and trunk drop off (think thats what its called ) that I would like to protect. I was just able to get phone in there to take a pic beside trunk edges but no way to get hand in there. Thinking of a product like Rust Check Rust Converter with spray nozzle would get down there, thoughts?

I've used that rust converter. It's pretty good. You could hit it with a light coat of fluid film afterwards.

 It'd be good to clean that dirt out of the bottom of the trunk drop off before hitting it with converter.  That mud/dust/dirt (whatever) is what causes the problem - it holds the moisture in there and you get a corrosion cell forming under it.  I'm not sure of how to get it out, but aren't there some plugs in the inner panel?  Anything you can get out is going to help.

 Thanks Ill definitely be doing that first.  There is a small plug at the front but its so small Im not sure how much would come out even if I blasted air down there?  Ill try to get the vacuum crevice took down there.  Other side has misc screws etc, who knows what treasures might be in there

i did use for 15 on a 56 fairlane i had. worked real well, the only drawback i could find was that they recommend top coating it if its exposed to sunlight . eastwood has a one shot encapsulator that sounds good , i may give that a shot. i can get por 15 right here though so its handy. i also used a trick i heard of using stretch and seal between the lid and it seemed to work well. i like the screw idea better though. thanks for all the input, this site is such a great resource


 you are correct on the need to cover POR-15 rust inhibitor  from prolonged exposure to sunlight.  The top coat they have works great and provides a factory looking finish.  If you are applying it to metal that you are painting with car colour or some other colour then that becomes your top coat.

I am horrible with names and got it wrong when I said Paul was the Canadian rep.  His name is Pat, I called the other day to pick his brain again on something.

Something in the back of my mind is telling me that if you want to top coat over POR15 you have to do it while the POR15 is still tacky. Once it hardens the top coat won't adhere.

 If it does harden you are still ok but you must then use a scratch pad to scratch it up then wipe off the dust with a cloth and then the top coat will stick fine.  Don't use air as there could be moisture in it  If you are lucky enough to have the time and can apply the top coat in the 4 - 6 hr window that's even better.  Remember to keep the humidity at or below 45% during the process.
