POR-15'd oil pan

Anyone used por 15 on their oil pan to stop rust? I have been reading about it on some other forums and i guess the stuff works great. My pan is starting to rust and i don't want to have to replace it. I also don't want to powder coat it cause it traps heat. So if anyone has done this could you please tell me how difficult it was and post up some pics if you have them? Thanks

I was joking, I am sure por-15 will work, but it may eventually burn off. I think using some high temp engine paint on there will help out though.

Well hey, some people would just rub oil on all over rusty parts so i dunno. Either way i don't want to have to replace the pan. That would probably cost $1500 at least.

No it would not cost 1500 if you do it yourself.

I have been known to rub vaseline all over my custom chrome bumpers to keep them from rusting in the winter. It does work, but you have to remember that there is vaseline on the bumpers. It sucks to step on them when it is wet outside.

Do you get dirty looks when you go to the store to buy the mega jar of vaseline? I would do it myself, but a few things would keep me from doing that. I can't have my truck down for that long, i would need a rental car, and i don't want to break anything else while taking out the engine. The dealer gives me a loaner to drive and if they break anything they have to fix it. Plus i would imagine they would jack the cab on my truck to pull the engine just like they do for the 6.0's.

I have used POR 15 but I prefer KBS instead, it is better product and actually costs a bit less. I just finished a frame off resto of a 77 CJ5. I put this stuff everywhere!! I wanted as much of a rust proof Jeep as I could get. Any area that comes in contact with UV light will need a top coat of paint or it will dis color. Prep is the key, make sure you use all three steps in the process and it will stop and active rust and prevent anything further. Ford really should have made the pans out of alum or SS.

I just ordered the sampler kit from KBS. Thanks for the info on that NCH. That stuff looks sweet. I will probably order more for the rest of the truck someday.
