Floor Pan Paint Question

Hi Guys,

I just finished putting in some patch panels in the floor of my Challenger. After I finished the patches I stripped the entire floor and primed it. I'm sure this has been covered but I can't find exactly the answer I'm looking for.

I'm looking for a top coat that will really bite into the floor and protect it before I install the dynamat. I don't care for POR15 and since the floor is in overall good shape I just want to protect it from future issues. I'm actually thinking of the Rustoleum rattle can spray paint since you aren't going to see it or would the Rustoleum brush on paint be better?

Or is there something better that I can use that will stick well to the metal. Thanks in advance for your help.

Dave

I did the floors of my '59 Ford with Duplicolor from Auto Zone. Anyone sells it I'm sure. Cost me around $27 a quart and sprayed on nicely. No rust on my floors, I just scraped up all the crud off it, wire brushed and washed it out first. I'm using Fat Mat over it.

I like the spray on bed liner idea. Will the Dynamat stick well to that?

Just paint it. The bed liner stuff is okay but, if you have to do ANY work on the floor, it creates a huge sticky mess. Any kind of paint will work. Brush on Rustoleum Industrial is very tuff stuff after it cures and it is easy to work with in the future.

2 part epoxy primer like the pros use. It can be sprayed or brushed on. Do at least two coats it wont need any paint but can be painted if you want.
