Has anyone used any of the products from Bill Hirsch http://www.hirschauto.com/ , POR-15 http://www.por15.com/ , or Eastwood's rust products http://www.eastwood....-solutions.html ? From what I read in a topic below, there are some mixed reviews on the Eastwood products, but that could be down to prep, which could also be said for any of the products I'm looking at here. Does anyone have opinions or (preferably) comparisons of any of this stuff? Are there better products? Do you have any advice, other than to follow the directions? hehe

Thanks!

Some swear by POR15. I think you need to do more prep than indicated on the bottle.

I've noticed that POR-15 is the most well-known, but I've been reading mixed reviews about their product. Mainly the negatives revolve around the paint not sticking to smooth surfaces (which would be an issue with my floor pan that is only partly rusty) and thin/runny (not an issue with a floor pan). I have a POR-15 starter kit that I never opened, but it hardened in the jar. Whoops. At least the rust converter stuff still seems viable...

Thanks!

I've used miracle paint (color black) from Bill Hirsch and it has worked great for me. I bought a cheap spray gun from harbor freight and put it on the entire bottom of my '89 Lebaron.<br />I've even used the color silver also on my metal fence amd it worked great, but there because of UV rays you have to finish with spray paint.
