2003 7.3L Rusty Oil pan

Well, I did the POR-15 rust seal treatment yesterday on my oil pan. That was quite a job, laying on my back in the driveway, etc. etc... Directions were pretty easy to follow, and the results look pretty good. Time will tell whether I saved myself a huge labor charge for a professional replacement. So far it looks like about 25 bucks well spent.

If it isn't to much trouble, could you post a photo...my pan is also pretty rusted and I don't really feel like removing the engine just to do a new pan, thanks

I was hoping not to...ha ha! Maybe tomorrow. My pan was rusted pretty badly on the rounded leading edge of the bottom section, just forward of the drain plug. There were also rust spots and paint bubbles on the bottom of the front section and that surface that ran back to the bottom. None on the sides. Now it is a glossy black that would look brand new, except for the occasional brush mark or run. The biggest challenge was reaching those portions of the pan covered by cross members. My right arm is a bit chafed from reaching past them.

The POR15 will do it's job if you followed the three step process correctly. A product I like better than POR15 is KBS. I did an entire CJ5 in the KBS and it still looked new when I sold it. KBS is also a bit cheaper!!

Mine is pretty much the same way you just described yours...but yea, just wanted to see how yours came out...no hurry, whenever you get a change...don't you hate that pain you get after, like the next day, after you've chafed your arm from not being able to reach something when work on trucks, specially cars...

Where can i get KBS? I painted mine with chassis saver last year, its supposed to be good stuff but it looks like it bubbling already.

KBS coatings, just google them. Like I said I like it better than POR15 and I have been using products like this for years. Just make sure you do the proper prep work and you will be well protected.

Feeling like an idiot, actually used KBS. My son had told me about POR15, and I found out about KBS on this website. Looked them both up, compared, found a 25 dollar sample kit and bingo- black oil pan, messed up arms!

Here are a couple of pics I just took of the finished result. If you look closely, you can see how rough the surface is under the paint at the front edge (next to the sway bar) of the pan. Thats what inspired this project, and someones posted estimate of 1500 buck labor just to get to the pan...as I was taught in the Navy, this aint painting for pretty, its for preservation!
