I'm also the type that has mustard stains on my shirt after hotdogs. It does help to keep it lookong good and slowing the rust.
My shirts don't seem to rust at all - have I bought the wrong type?

Myron Leski asked, where can He buy Tremclad paint??? In Canada here, We get it at just about any hardware store. I got mine at Home Depot. It's made for painting rusted, and pitted metal, and needs no primer. If You can't find it at Home Depot in the good old USA, I am sure there will be something equally as good, or maybe better. Good Luck to Yves Pelchat on his project this weekend......let us all know how You made out......

One of my first projects, after bringing our '99 Scamp to it's new home, was to inspect/repaint the frame. Most of the areas looked fairly good and free of rust. Repainted using black Rustolium spray paint. There were several areas where surface rust was evident. I wire brushed and sprayed these with 95% zinc primer followed by the Rustolium. There were a few fittings on the door of the Scamp showing rust (and leaving a rust stain down the side of the hull). I removed all the surface rust, masked these and sprayed with the 95% zinc primer. Still looking good after two seasons.

I use the same treatment on some of the steel components on my boat/trailer which is used exclusively in salt water and it holds up very well.

Ok. So It's done!

My Bigfoot's frame looks as pristine, now, as when it left the Bigfoot factory, 17 years ago. I found the frame to be in excellent shape. I've used Tremclad.

I also replaced the incandescent exterior lights with sealed LED lights. Man, those are bright When i have a few minutes, i'll take some pictures, and post them here.

Yves.
