POR 15, your input

I have tried a sample kit and I LOVE this stuff. I have also talked to a few people that have used it for 8+ years and its still working strong.
I have also read bad reviews on it, mainly from the guys on this site. I was just curious what you guys did or didnt like about it? What problems you had when using it? Were your problems strictly product based, poor prepping or topcoating options being compatible???

Any input is appriciated. I purchased this to use on my engine bay and suspension parts.

What I don't like is the price.
I'll just stick with the "cheap" epoxy.

I use rustoleum 777 satin black. $7.00 a quart at Lowes. Just let it dry a full 24 hours between coats, or it will check out. I love the stuff and I've been using it for years. You can cut it with acetone and even sand between coats. There are probably a hundred threads on the forum about this pro's and con's.

IMO- POR and KBS are hype. Use epoxy or rustoleum and save $$$$$

My current project wears Rustoleum 777 Satin Black. Total cost for entire frame $8.00. I wish they made cologne.

If you haven't already viewed this:

Which primer over POR 15?

then it may help you with the pro and con opinions. You just have to slog through the egos, shouting, and posters who say they don't care a whit but keep posting anyway. LOL this is a fun forum

You just reminded me of my DryLock experience.
I bought into all the hype.
Worked good at first.
After a few years it started popping loose like a bad sun burn.
