you can take a pressure washer and knock off all the loose flaky stuff off the frame and under coat it or do what i do about twice a year i go buy a case of gloss black spray can paint and clean the truck up good and spray it down , last a good while ,and no rust

I have heard of Por 15 from my car friends in the east. POR-15 Inc.

That stuff is badass but a little expensive. They say it's worth it.

My little brother and dad are building a 50 F-1. They used por-15 on all the frame pieces looks good and it's pretty tough. My brother dropped one of the motor mounts while he was taking it off the paint hanger. It dropped about 4 landed on the concrete and didn't even chip it.

You'll never belive this, but I was just going out to powerwash and paint the underneath of my truck. Weird

I want to do that, it seems better then the messy undercoat... anyone know anything about this stuff??? ... Rust Doctor: Paint over rust with non-toxic latex rust paint. Safe, easy to use rust repair. Water based, non flammable.

This weekend I pressure washed mine and sprayed the underside with Plasti Dip. It was about 5 bucks a can at Lowe's. It took 6 cans to spray the frame, crossmembers, axles and leaf springs. Looks good too.
