Paint question

hey guys im curently in the process of doing a frame off restoration on my 97 ccsb. Im almost done sand blasting and going over that with a wire wheel and was wondering what primer/paint anyone has used. Ive heard good things about POR15 and chassy saver but just wanted a second opinion. Ive went on POR15 website and there was alot of options and wasnt sure what to look for. THANKS

Go to farm and fleet and buy the valspar implement paint, ad hardener, reduce to water like consistency and shoot it thru a paint gun, looks badass and hard as a rock, case ih uses this paint onall their stuff. U won't be disappointed... plus use their primer and it is a rust inhibitor and sealer in one unlike most auto grade primers that are poris and penetrable by water... plus the paint is $30 a gallon

POR 15 is great stuff, but it must be top coated to keep it nice. I doesn't work well over clean shinny metal, but is meant for Painting Over Rust(hence the name).

Do you know, would adding the catalyst (hardner) to the primer have any benifit?

POR15 is really good stuff but it's very sensitive to UV light and fades out quickly. On sunlight exposed surfaces you need to paint over it with something but under the truck it's fine by itself. I use it all the time on my stuff with great result. Just be sure to NOT get it on YOUR body parts... I keep it tightly sealed in a fridge and just pour out what I plan on using.
