I paint my frames with Tremclad, but ALWAYS use Tremclad red oxide primer 1st. I tried it without the primer once and it peeled off after a couple of years. The primer seems to help it stick better.

If you want that stock semi gloss black that the stock frames seem to have, mix a litre of gloss black with a litre of flat black.

The CTC rust paint is just as good as Tremclad, in my opinion.

im not exactly sure, but you could check and see if they have a web site and see if they can point you in the right direction . and if that does'nt pan out i would check with a local shop that sells auto paint supplies . thats bout all i can recomend to you i know its not much but thats all i got . quick tip when you get it be sure to wear latex gloves because that stuff does not wash off it has to wear off ,and use a little coffee scooper to dip it out , also before you put the lid back on put a peice of plastic wrap over the can and then put on the lid . i learned all this the hard way .. good luck ,and i hope you can get the por 15 its great stuff . jim

i have used the por 15 on many things and im pretty impressed with it it adheres real good if you dont sand blast the part just clean off any heavy rust and just brush it on it will flow out nice . and if any thing such as gas or other chemicals get on it it doesnt hurt it at all pretty tough stuff , it also comes in a few different colors including clear

We have bought POR-15 in Canada, it works great. Lots of imitation substances though, so be wary!
Have any of you tried a paint called "Zero Rust" as an alternative to Tremclad?
It works awesome!

Keep your eye on the Old Car Trader or the Auto trader. I have seen advertisments in both for canadian suppliers. Or go to POR-15 on the web and they should be abl;e to list canadian distributors. I haven't looked yet but i might try it on my 66 Ford truck frame.

You can pick up POR15 in London, Ontario at D.J. Automotive, ph. 519-666-1430. Price is $49.00 for a quart and $150. for a gal.(U.S. gal is equal to 4 liters CDN. )

I've used POR15 as a brush on for floor pans and sprayed it on the frame of my '40 Ford P/U, works great and doesn't chip or scrape off easily. If you are using it to spray on, be sure to get their solvent that works with their product because ordinary solvent and reducer just doesn't work with the product. Buy POR15 in the smallest quanity that you are going to use, for example if you are going to paint a frame, the wheel wells, and the floor panels, but not all at the same time, don't buy a gallon and just put the lid back on the can. REASON: The lid will never come off, short of using a power chisel; the product reacts with air and will coat the inside of the can using the air that is trapped within the can drying to an extremly hard finish inside the can. You can buy a gallon and then break it down into small containers calibrated to the size of the job. I use glass food jars from spagetti sauce down to baby food size for really small touch up jobs where I drilled a hole or welded on something. You can see the different colors and the amount in each jar at a glance. Works great!!

Use Zero Rust or POR-15 only if you are painting over RUSTED metal .

Much better off using epoxy primer on clean or sandblasted metal.

I have purchased both ZR and POR in Ontario simply email the companies for dealers.
