    You might be ok because it'll only stick to major rust. But from my later experiences with it, it doesn't actually stop the rust but encapsulate it. If I were you I'd sand blast that door and then use a rust converter or something that actually stops the rusting process. I've been burned by por 2 times lately. I'm not a fan anymore.

    That surface rust on the doors should be stopped with that good dose of aged POR15. It the hood need much in the way of cutting and patching Seth ?
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.

    I hope the por works, I've found out with that stuff once you put it on, your committed to it. It dries so stinkin hard I'm a bit concerned about scuffing it. The rust on the hood surface was minimal surface rust under the filler. It looked like it must have had moisture on the metal or something, it sanded off completely with the D/A. The hood had one of those stupid bra things on and it was like a stagnant swimming pool under that so I just attributed the paint lift to that, maybe it got through to the steel somehow.It should be good now.I usually like to put down a sealer B/F the filler but I didn't feel like cleaning my gun so I went right over the steel. People used to do it that way for years and I'm sure it will last long enough for this car.

    Getting ready to put some color on the Trailblazer and so I thought I'd get everything ready. Guess who forgot to clean the paint gun after varnishing the 53's bed I got it cleaned up but it would have been easier right afterward.

    That is never a good deal when you open it up to find set up paint!

    Got the underside of the hood painted, I wasn't being to particular with it because it's the underside of the hood on a Trailblazer so I thought this pic was close enough.

    You sure maintain a clean work space. Maybe someday I'll get there.

    Painted the bumper tonight. I just did the bumper because I'm using Omni Paint which is cheap but it doesn't cover as good as premium brands. I want to check the bumper to the rest of the vehicle to make sure I'm getting enough blue on. If something doesn't match perfect I want it to be the bumper not the hood and fender. I will be blending into the door but I still like it to be close. I was pretending I was painting my 71 the whole time.

    Ain't I a looker You'll notice there is always a lot of rags on the floor during my painting projects. When I was younger we had a small shed burn down that was attributed to a bunch oil stain and varnish rags in the garbage can. I've been a little nervous of throwing paint rags in a can ever since. I probably wasn't as nervous as the fire dept trying to put out that shed fire though. My brother had over 1500 rounds of .223 ammo in there.

    Nice spraying Seth! Your shed story reminds me of when I was welding near my trash can that had several brake clean saturated paper towels in it. When I got out from under the wheel well when I was done welding, the flames out of that trash can were kissing my ceiling which is 12' 2". I couldn't believe it. I have been a lot more cautious since that tard moment.......
