So have any of you thought about using the SEM undercoating and then trim out the tongue and bumper with the black paint???

My frame is in good solid shape but the surface is pitted in areas. After blasting it clean I used the Rustoleum Hammered Dark Bronze. The hammer finish blends the surface irregularities nicely.

I had to remove the gray water tank on my scamp 5th, it had a crack on top, from side to side, someone gave me an old boat aluminum fuel tank, Iam in the process of altering it for my camper, or pay 165.00 for a new one from scamp, when I dropped the tank, I noticed the frame had little or no paint, so Iam sanding, and using Oshpho, tradename for phosphoric acid as a primer, and some leftover duplicolor Bed liner paint I used from a previous project, and I will roll it on, or brush it, who knows? it might turn out okay Paul

I touch-up my frame as needed with Black Aerosol Rustoleum Hammered finish. I pretreat with Phosphoric Plus (liquid naval gelly). Both available at the Home Depot within walking distance of my house.

Used POR 15 on my old Casita, just wire brush and applywith paint brush. Use WITH gloves ( it has to wear off your hands) and put cardboard down on the driveway. Very long lasting and on areas not exposed to sunshine, most of the frame, it does not have to be top coated. Exposed areas must be though and I used a bronze hammer finish and it looked black and hammer finish nicely blended in with uneven finish.
