Re:: Possible Chassis Paint   

https://www.blpmobilepaint.com/pds/p40-ax-7.pdf

I used this stuff today to paint a frame for a sculpture we are refurbishing.
Someone at work recomended it and I only applied it. Its thick and nasty stuff but its supposed to be strong and durable. it was litterally like brushing Tar, I got a couple test pieces of sheetmetal drying as well.

The promising thing is it cost less then $30 for a Gallon. so if its as good as its supposed to be it would make an excellent chassis paint, provided it were thinned so it will flow better. Maybe sprayed or rolled.

I also wanna know if polyester will stick to it as well. I plan to bend the sheetmetal scratch and chip at it also.

Well I will be looking forward to what you find out. I was hoping there was an alternative to por15 that would be easy to apply. Keep us updated I am really interested in your results as to how flexible this stuff is.

Its got a 3 day cure time so I won't do any testing on this until the weekend or next week.I am not sure that a coal tar epoxy is replacement for Urethane products such as POR15, but it might be a nice cheaper alternative.

As far as alternatives to POR15 theres Master Series and Rust Bullet. I haven't used Rust Bullet but I have heard all positive things about it. Not the case for POR15, Im not impressed with that stuff mainly because how touchy it is with Prep.

Master Series is available from someone on this board and I like it. Its a little wierd to that you can only brush it in one direction and and once you open the can you gotta use it all or loose it, but its a good product and way better then Por15. I wouldn't hesitate to recomend it.

I was thinking of line x for the bottom of the pans on my current project, anyone else tried this?

I did a spray on bedliner for the top of the pan on my Buggy. Would work great for the bottom I am sure.

Well so far I left the panels out in the sun and rain, just to see if it held up and I also didn't get a chance to get back to it for awhile.
Anyway it seems water proof and the sun had no effect....

Took one of them and wacked the shit out of it with a Ball Peen hammer. One big dent and chipped the paint a little tiny bit, right at the point of impact only. the edges of the chipped paint was still fully bonded and could not be chipped further or even scraped off with a screwdriver.
So I grabbed some pliers and twited and bent the chipped corner and the paint still remained bonded and did not crack. It remained flexible and still bonded to the steel.

My next test will be adhesion, just out of curiosity I will see how polyester filler will bond to it, sanded and unsanded. I figure it if bonds well then I would assume that primers and paint should too.

So far I am impressed as a chassis paint / coating I am firm believer this is a great option, if not a perfect alternative for any more expensive others. Its cheap, bonds strong and it flexible.

Interesting. I put it over some seriously nasty rusty steel coated with OSPHO. I gotta try some painted surfaces, scuffed ofcourse.
But clean bare metal it works great.
