best paint and procedure for frame and axles?

so when I get home from here I want to repaint and make my whole frame and suspension look like brand new....Ive heard good things and seen good things about POR-15....anyone used it? what is the best procedure for applying it, as well as where to get it in Virginia or Florida? preferably the virginia beach area or the melbourne, orlando, daytona area.

please let me know, I need to completely sandblast the underside of my truck with a small portable sandblaster and be done with it before I repaint it.....I dont want to install diff covers on rusty axles.

Chad

I've used POR-15 on my 08 F-350 and my 02 F-350 works great but remember POR-15 is sensitive to UV light (sun) and must be top coated for prolonged exposure to sunlight. Top coating is not required for areas not exposed to sunlight. So you may not have to worry about top coating the frame. There is also a product called Rust-Mort that works very good on rust. It turns the rust a blackish Grey color then you can paint what ever color you want over it.

Wow... Sand blast the bottom of the truck... that may take a while, there is some good stuff that Ford uses that may take some time to remove. I just remember sandblasting the tow hooks.. that epoxy coated paint on those took FOREVER to come off... LOL When you come back you will have to post up progress and final pics.. .I have always wanted to clean up the undercarriage of the truck...

when i did mine i used herculiner and about 2 and a half days sand blasting. . . takes a long time and makes a mess. its holding up good though. i often hit it with cheap spray bomb just to keep it lookin good.
