    I Epoxy Primed my Frame and Powder Coated all of the suspension pieces-the reason? I was concerned that I might have to change something (exhaust mounts, or Weld something?) down the road-

    Dave you can also do virtually anything you like with it, small chassis mods are easy and blow in the paint is simple.
    Interesting thing about epoxy primer is that my 56 F100 was epoxy primed and after 90,000 miles i did indeed have some stonechips on the floor underneath, all had chipped down to the epoxy but not one had chipped the epoxy primer itself !!!

    I agree, a good epoxy primer will add to durability.
    We all have our own ways of doing things, I'm not saying that anyone in this conversation is wrong.

    Just adding my limited experience, and flavor to the conversation also

    I did these semi fuel tanks, steps, air tanks, air filter housing, headlights, rear fender, mirror brackets, etc 3 years, and almost 600,000 miles ago... and they have held up just fine. This vehicle goes from Ohio, to CA, to TX, back to OH, so it see's just about every type of weather and road condition out there, he runs year round also (as you can tell by the grime on the truck it gets werked

    The case I am making is that powder applied properly is a very durable, and long lasting finish to add to almost any substrate.

    there is also epoxy primer in powder coat

    unintentional hijack off, sorry

    I tried to attach a picture 'way back' on Post 21 and it didn't show.

    This is my chassis a couple weeks after it was powder coated:

    http://i70.photobucket.com/albums/i8...mplchassis.jpg

    Would epoxy+BC/CC been as good? Possibly(probably) - except for the fact the powder coaters were able to grit blast places I could never reach and the PC is inside of the boxed frame as well. And I've never had the skills necessary to shoot paint around corners plus nooks and crannies behind brackets.

    hard to find a better product than POR-15. can be sprayed or brushed. very durable and good looking. also, spraying will make a little go a loooong way

    It sure is easier Don but if it does start peeling its a bitch to get off again, probably something to do with climate but powder coating on frames does't seem to do well here in england, I much prefer Epoxy primer and 2K topcoat. Its always served me well.

On some where the frame shows and needs a lot of filler though sometimes painting still has some advantages, although you can fill and sand a frame using something like Tiger Drylac if you don't mind the tough sanding job and expense.
