Refinishing the Bottom Side

I'm getting ready to remove all coatings, rust etc from the underneath of my 64 Falcon. The floor pans are approx 27" off the ground and I am trying to decide how to finish the bare sheet metal. Because of the height my first thought is to use some type of roll on bed liner. I do have one of those old style suction guns w/ the 3 ft hoses attaching the gun to the paint can and I can adequately cover the floor if necessary. I am willing to sacrifice ease of application for a good durable finish if necessary. I'd appreciate being able to lean on you guy's

You could always go the POR15 route, followed by their chassis black. Or start with a epoxy primer, and paint. Depends on what you want it to look like. If you blast the bottom a roll on bedliner will work, but go with a more expensive brand. I've used dulpi-color on a bed, and even with proper prep it didnt want to stick after a few months.

some ideas for you

No matter what bare metal must be sealed. Since you have a gun there are lots of good 2 part epoxy sealers out there, leave an hour dry time then you can roll on the box liner, or you can buy sealer in a spray can all though the quality is not as good but will work if you don't want to mix epoxy or use your gun.
