Detailed Description

POR15 is widely used by restoration experts and VW enthusiasts alike. POR stands for "paint over rust," and as the name implies you do not have to completely remove all rust in order to apply it. In fact it works best on a rough surface. First clean and degrease the surface thoroughly and remove all loose rust with the a wire brush or etcher. Then brush on the POR-15 (or use a spray gun). You can paint over it or not when dry. You can also apply primer while it is still tacky if you prefer. See the package for more details. This is a very effective and inexpensive precaution that can help prevent or at least delay a much more expensive repair. Note, this is now black; we used to offer clear but they have discontinued it. This is just one of the rust preventative products we offer. ZeroRust works similarly with less prep and costs much less, but does not dry clear. You can buy it in quarts, or in a spray can that's perfect for holes and crevices where you can't fit a brush. Both are linked below. If you’re treating areas that don’t have any rust (or where the rust has already been treated or repaired), try our Waxoyl, Waxoyl Underbody Seal, and Seam Sealer. And of course if your rust is past the point of treatment, we stock a full range of replacement metal for a once-and-for-all solution.
