I painted the frame on a Scamp
16 with POR-15. I ordered the quart kit for about $70. The kit contains 3 one qt. containers Por-15, Marine clean and metal prep. This is a multi-step process and using a creeper is a must.
1. Wire brush off loose rust and lightly sand painted surfaces with a multi tool.
2. Wash frame with marine clean to remove any oil and debris.
3. Rinse with clean water.
4. Treat rusty surfaces with the metal treatment solution and let set for a while.
5. Rinse with clean water and dry completely.
6. Apply POR-15, I used a brush and had a just little left over with one coat.
I knew I had to top coat the back bumper and tongue but learned you should use a POR-15 top coat since the finish is so slick. $25 for a spray can a little more for a brush on container. I am currently waiting for my top coat.
POR-15 is extremely thin but leaves a level shinny very hard surface. Really pleased so far.
1. Read instructions.
2. Use only about 3-4 oz. at a time because it stars to kick in about one hour.
3. Use saran wrap between the top and the can if you want to get the top off the can later.
4. Wear long sleeve shirt and use long cuff rubber gloves and tuck the sleeves under the glove cuffs if possible. The paint
will soak through cotton shirt and stain your skin.
5. Wear eye protection.
6. Have a bunch of brushes from the $1 Store, they are not re-useable.
7. Four days and the paint
stains are still on my arms. Instructions say it takes about a week to wear off.
