Oil Pan Paint?

Well I have heard that the oil pans on these trucks tend to rust out. And I crawled under mine today and there is a little surface rust starting on it, and I want to stop it now. Ive heard POR 15 is the stuff to use, but how does it hold up to the heat? Or is there something else I should use?
Thanks,
Chris

POR is awesome crap. I think it takes heat pretty well. Never used it on anything like that but an oil pan doesnt get that hot in relativity to the motor. so you will probably be alright using it

POR 15 will work fine for a rusty pan. Mine is to the point where it is leaking & POR 15 wouldn't seal it. JB weld worked better for me. Get some on that pan asap. You don't want it leaking.
