3. I agree 100% with what Jeeper99xj had to say, any welding on the frame after it's coated or galvanized kind of defeats the coating.
4. Coating on the inside is difficult, no doubt about it, but it makes a big difference.
5. Most rust spots in a frame develope from the inside to the outside of a frame due to trapped moisture, mud and the like.
6. A good example is the tail section of the frame... it just captures gunk and muck and rots. It think that's its' job.
7. I like hammerite because it can be brushed, thinned, sprayed, sponged, or poured on and then it can also be easily touched up.
8. The other two things I like are:
a. Farm frame paint for tractors. The stuff stays pretty pliable. It forms a cushion, is somehwat self-healing, inexpensive and easily re-covered.
b. Mixture of Linseed oil and dust and motor oil. This stuff is nasty, messy and hard to work with... but it works. Just look under you CJ where the oil was flung by the leaking valve cover, or rear main... no rust! This formula has been around for years, but it does need constant attention... and it smells and dosen't look too pretty.
