Por 15

Getting ready to coat the inside of my Roadster and wondered what is the best thing to use? MY brother used POR 15 on his 34 and spent 2 weeks trying to remove it from parts of his body (his and the car) when he was done. Any suggestions as to the best finish before upholstery?

painting with por-15

Hi,i have had NO luck using por-15.i personally recommend using epoxy zinc chromate.since its inside the car,you can either brush it,or use a small roller.

If you had or have rust issues POR15 is a great product. If everything is clean and new it's not a great choice. Use a good paint, and don't spend the extra for POR15.

Yeah that's what i thought. All new Sheet metal now but I just wanted something durable and easy. I intended to paint the bottom body color but inside and under the sticky stuff I wanted to protect and perhaps sound deaden the panels with some good stuff.

If you're looking for sound deadener then most paints wont give you any. I went with Home Depot sound deadener, as the Dynamat stuff was just crazy priced. The stuff at Home Depot was $15 for a 1'x15' roll and it's foil backed, self adhesive, with dense foam. No asphalt products to stink in it. I found it in the heating duct dept.
Really cut noise in my Austin. I drove it with no interior before this, and after getting just the deadener in it made a huge difference. Once carpet and door panels were in it was even better!

Here's something else to try, do a search on this site for..."alternative to lizardskin" it's basically a DIY on coating the interior of your car with a roll on/brush on material thats an insulation/sound deadener.....good reading.

actually por15 sell a metal prep you can spray on bare metal to create a <i believe, a zinc oxidation that the por 15 will adhere to beautifully . if it will be exposed to UV / sunlight there is another coating to go on top of it , chassis coat if i recall . I have used por 15 for years on quite a few cars in a lot of situations . I can't say enough good things about it .... yes it is hard to get off skin . When I was doing a lot more resto work I was called sir splotchy of por 15 by the guys in the shop
