    What's up everyone! Just wanted to share a product that I just tried out.

    Doing a little updating on my 96 Chevy 1500! I decided to do a little rust clean up on the frame. Didn't have the money to pull the frame to have blasted and coated and I didn't want to just spray undercoating on the frame. I first pressure washed the frame removing most of the dirt. I then used a wire brush to get any of the raised rust. I then found this product, Corroseal.

    It turns rust to primer, but also applies a coating that is supposed to stop rust. It wipes on white and turns black when it dries!

    Frame cleaned up!

    Applying a coat!

    Dried and ready for the next step!

    The plan is to spray undercoating over this and then a gloss coating on the exterior part of the rail!

    Anyways, thought I would share if you have something rusty that need protecting and stop the cancer from spreading!

    Haven't tried corroseal but others I used worked. That's a good finish

    I was thinking it would have a texture finish like primer can, but it is smooth.

    For a car guy there’s nothing quite like that feeling you get when you step back, take a good look and realize that it’s time to start bolting those freshly powder coated parts to that clean, painted frame.

    I’m so over cutting and grinding at this point, but I’m in the home stretch. With my kids situation I’m lucky to squeeze in an hour here or there a couple times a week. Just got the radiator support crossmember built tonight. I’m almost there. Got a lot of mock-up to do though.

    Everything on this has snowballed! Could have just put it back together, but while it's apart I might as well do this and do that!

    That's the way my entire car hobby has evolved since I was 15. I'd get done with one and say "I shoulda done that while I was in there". So the next one I'd go a little farther. This time all that was left to do was build one from scratch...

    That's part of the problem, I have a frame off build going. I get to thinking about shit on this truck, I don't want to get to wishing, later, I'd done it!
