painting the frame and axles

Has anyone painted the frame on their truck and maybe their axles too? Mine has the typical northern rust and i want to clean it up. I already have some of this kbs stuff for my oil pan. Stop Rust - Preferred 4 to 1 over POR-15 - Gas Tank Sealer - KBS Coatings - RustSeal in Colors I am thinking about getting their frame kit. This stuff seems like the best bet cause you can go right over rust without having to blast it all off. Brushing it on looks like its time consuming, maybe not though. Spraying is nice, but it gets particles everywhere. I would just like to hear of some ideas from everyone.

I never got that fancy with mine. When it gets to looking bad, I just grab a can of black spray paint and go at it. It doesn't last too long, a couple months but it looks good for a while and cheap. I just do the parts I can see, maybe a half can worth. But then again we don't get the rust like you guys do. On my mustang when I was restoring it I did the underneath with truck bed liner and it worked good, will work on the rust too, as long as it isn't flaky.

i used Eastwood's rust encapsulator:

Eastwood Co. - Rust Encapsulator

I didn't spray anything over top of it (as recommended) but it's still survived two years of gravel roads and really salty winters. Cheap and effective

I thought about trying the stuff that just turns rust black. Its spray on stuff. I just might end up using that instead. A lot cheaper and easier to apply. I just don't want it to look cheap or like an asian kid did it so its multi colored.

Did you spray it or brush that eastwood stuff on? See i wish kbs had spray cans. The eastwood stuff look like good stuff that you can spray.
