Eastwood rubberized undercoating

Has anyone ever used the eastwood ruberized under coating? I thought i my coat the under side with POR15 & then spry the eastwood on top of that after it dried. I like the idea of the sprayer you can by with the kit that has a wand for reaching hard to get to places....

Thanks SC

Undercoating

I have bought a few Eastwood products, but found the prices to be at or higher than what I can get things for locally. Now, I live in a pretty good size area with lots of body shops in a general area where cars are made and hot rods are common. I realize that not everyone lives in an area like that. We have 3 autobody paint & supply stores in town.

But what I did was went to the local paint and body shop suply store that sells to body shops, and bought some 3M rubberized undercoating in a large spray can. Reasonable price and top quality from a name you know.

I even found some of this stuff at an auto parts store!

I was able to do the whole underside of the car in a light coat in about 5-7 cans.

I have been buying my under coating at Wal-Mart in large spray cans. It works great and hold up well. It is also a great sound deadener.

I realize that Eastwood carries alot of neat stuff, but to me they seem overpriced on alot. I would check for a small body shop supplier in your area. We have one that actually goes from shop to shop selling tools to the techs. There isn't much that you can't get from them. If you are looking for name brand tools, they can get them. If you are looking for the lower priced stuff for a one time thing, they can usually get it also, and it won't cost a mint. I know that every area may not have one of those, but it is worth a look.

I know this was not the subject here but what do you guys think about the water proofing ability of a good(not the cheapo stuff) undercoating? This may be a no-brainer but I have had several people tell me that undercoating can hold moisture under it and cause more problems than it solves and in fact I have found a lot of rust under the stuff where the paint under it was thin or non-existant. It seems ok if the paint is intact but if that is the case anyway would it not then be unnecessary except for sound deadening?

Sorry if I hijacked your thread but this is something I was already thinking about.
