I buy it mail order, there are several places that sell it, check Hemmings Motor News, yes it works very well inside doors, I have a 1929 Studebaker body that i painted the entire insides of the body with POR-15, then due to circumstances beyond my controll it had to sit outside for a few years unprotected, insides still look like the day I painted them.

It it the best rust stopper that I`ve found.
Just be sure you have plenty of ventilation and a good respirator

Good Luck
Troy

I used it to paint the frame on the 36 almost 15 years ago and it still looks good.

Thanks guys for the info. My doors have been dipped so should
not have any rust but I want to make sure they have a finish inside that will not allow water to get to the metal. Sounds like Por is still what I need.

Another suggestion if you have someone nearby that can do it. Ecoating. Visit www.metokote.com for a detailed explanation of the process. They may or may not have a facility near you that takes outside work. Many ecoaters do work directly for the automotive industry and don't take small jobs. If you can find a shop near you that does it, you won't find a better way to protect both the inside and outside surfaces. You might check www.electrocoat.org to find a list of member companies near you.

Totally agree on the gloves, get it on your skin and it just has to wear off.

just a note... one time I had a car all taped up in the booth ready for paint. The booth was wet down the paint was mixed I was suited up and giving the car a final tack rag wipe and blow with air. All was cool till the air hit the inside of a wheel opening and blew off a strip of the Por-15 where the owner had apllied it on paint without at least roughing/cleaning/whatever.

Needless to say I had something to do (scuff/prep) that I didn't really want to do right then, otherwise I've only had good experiences with it

I also highly recommend this stuff. Check on ebay I have found good deals on it there. We painted our frame and chassis parts with it. The application actually calls for a three step process. 1.Degrease(simple green works well and cheaper than there product. 2."Metal ready" is there product which puts a zinc coating on the metal and rust to help the paint bond and smother the rust.3. Then apply por-15 paint. We actually applied all of it with brushes and it self-levels so it almost looks sprayed on.
Needless to say we like it.
Highly recommend gloves
Best of Luck

Is this stuff thick or thin? Can it be sanded and filled after you apply it? I've got some windshield frame areas that are pretty rusted and pitted and I've been told this is the stuff to use on these areas. But, after I prep and coat the rusted areas I will still need to fill the pits, sand smooth, and prime in prep for basecoat topcoat. Can all of this be done over POR 15 the same as if you were doing it over bare metal?
