Postby Hambone » July 29th, 2017, 7:54 pm

I'm wanting to get my suspension bolted back up so I can move it around, I want to paint the front without tearing it all apart, thinking degreaser, power wash, wire brush, power wash then some denatured alcohol. So, to my question, what will be my best paint to paint it with? POR15, Rustoleum Rust Reformer, etc., I know the rust reformer is about $7 a can, POR is three times that much, any suggestions?

Rust reformer or plain old Rustoleum primer and then paint. It will last longer than you do. :lol:

Degreased and power washed first round, knocked most of the dirt and grime off, blowed it off with the leaf blower, letting it dry before I put the wire brush to it, headed to Home Depot for some Rust Reformer.

Turned into an all day project, so much wire brushing by hand, so many cracks and crevices, but I was able to get it accomplished, going to throw a top coat of Rustoleum paint on it tomorrow, found the Rust Reformer for $4.50 a can at Wally World, it actually turned out better than I expected. :D

I am not so sure about that as a reformer. I have sen the tests but it dries far to fast to be having any chemical reaction. I sprayed some of that on a rusty panel I had wire wheeled and some rusty metal primer right next to it. Next day I wire brushed over both areas and I was able to get down to rust under bot the reformer and the primer equally. It did not change anything any more than the primer. I left that piece out in the weather all winter and both areas stayed rust free (except where I disturbed it). But the price you payed for the reformer is a lot less than the primer so see what happens.

I've been using this stuff ... so far so good but time will tell. I can get it local for about $60 a gallon.

Making a little progress, started putting the suspension back under it.

I used the old double socket trick to replace the bushings, even though I have a press, it's a pain in the butt to try holding it up and operate the press, so I find this is the easiest way when working by yourself, don't forget to put them in the freezer first, makes it so much easier.

I think I pulled something trying to hold these a-arms up so I could start the bolts. :lol:

The front end went in pretty easy with the use of the engine hoist.

Back from the outdoor paint shop, I hate body work and painting, much rather do mechanical, guess that's about to kick in. :D
