Default POR 15

Has anyone ever used this product and what is the best price for one gallon to do several frames? I went to the web site and there seems to be several different types.

I read a review from a magazine that did a side by side test with Eastwood'* Rust Encapsulator and the Encapsulator came out on top. If I recall, it was because it was easier to apply and seemed to come out a little better in their long term test.

I love POR-15. It costs $49 shipped for 1 quart and it does a whole car (2 coats). It is worth it!!

Go to www.stoprust.net

A gallon is $123.75 at www.por15.com and that will do SEVERAL frames.

I don't know about the "Encapsulator," but POR-15 applies with a brush. You can't get any easier than that.

And it takes at least 5 days for it to come off your skin. I've gone to work with horribly stained hands. Wear gloves and a long sleeved shirt. I knew I had to, but I ran out of gloves and brake clean while I was finishing my work.

Holly Crap, that'* expensive. I need a gallon since I want to do 3 cars including the underbody. I wonder if it ever goes on sale. What did you use the brake clean on?
