Powdercoat is the best thing.

Powdercoating your frame is absolutly the best thing. The easiste as well, you only have to drop your frame and parts off and pick them up! Its a wonderful process, a bit more exspesive than POR-15, but much better results and easier as well. Its not really spendy, not drain your account spendy just a couple hundred around here for a full frame.

i agree with halloween king. powder coating is awesome. althought i didn't do this for my chassis. i did have all five wheels, various radiator mounting parts, fan shroud, and other parts of this nature powder coated and it is completely awesome. next project i'll do a frame off and have the chassis done for sure. it isn't TOTALLY scratch resistant but it is VERY tough.

Ghastly is correct, its not totally scratch resistant, but if you do get a scratch you can use some 400 and buff it out afterwards, it will stand up to the road though.

POR-15 is awesome but look into Zero-Rust

I've been using Zero-Rust. It's waaay cheaper than POR-15 and easier to use. It cleans up easy and doesn't have to be kept in the fridge once opened. The finish is a satin black (UV sensitive, like POR-15) and is way easier to apply - seems pretty tough too. You can actually spray this stuff without killing family members or pets with the fumes. Just thin it with lacker thinner. The only thing is that it can take a while to dry if you apply too much at one time.

I would like to get the frame of my 34 project powder coated, but locally it is just too expensive. I have a rolling chassis that must be dissambled for coating. Here is the price i got.

Bare frame $550
Tubular A arms $150
9" Ford rear axle $150
