Frame Paint and Priner?

I have just finished chipping and wire brushing the frame clean on my Chevelle.

After a good wipe down, I had intended to paint with a few coats of (Rattle Can) Red Oxide primer...then cover with sating black paint.

This is just a street car...no shows...does this sound OK?

If I were you and lived up in your area I think I'd just spend $25 on a quart of POR and coat the frame with that. It will protect the metal much longer then cheap rattle can paint and you can put it on with a brush.

i used John deere primer and blitz black on my chassis in the front, worked well, hasnt chiped other then a few little places when installing my engine myself. i used a paint brush to apply it, and a rattle can for the front springs and stuff that i could not get to with a brush. you can use a air gun too with thinner(i just didnt have my air compressor at the time)

and its really cheap$$
