Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I found

Sorry for this but I had to vent to some one that would understand what pain I am going through. None of my friends are into cars or Jeeps and they know nothing about them. So, I started prepping my tub for Herculiner today and I noticed that I have tons of surface rust that I need to remove before I can spray the tub. I think I am going to take the paint off all around the surface rust and then spray some Corlus or POR 15 then prep for the Herculiner. I spent all day taking paint off the inside of my tub with a 4 inch angle grinder and a wire wheel. Boy, do my hand and back hurt. I think that tomorrow I should be able to finish up the paint removal and then I can spray the POR 15 on Sat. And here all along I thought my tub was so clean. Now I know that the previous owner only covered up all the problems with paint. I shall get some pics posted once I have some thing to show for all my work.

Re: Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I fou

I know what you mean about finding things you don't like. When I pulled my roll bar to change the rear kickers (I'm going to put shoulder straps back there) I found that the top of my fender wells were COMPLETELY rusted through under the rollbar plates. Ended up replacing with net, thicker metal.

You might think about just using some Rust Fix instead of the POR-15. After you get the metal wire wheeled as best as you can, spray the Rust Fix per the instructions. Then put on the herculiner. This stuff is a rust encapsulator and far cheaper than POR-15. I have it in several places on my jeep, and it's good stuff. The herculiner will also keep oxygen from reaching the metal, so it's like a double layer of anti-rust armor on your tub.

Don't forget to post pics when you get the herculiner done!

Re: Prepping for Herculiner do not like what I found

Skip the POR. I have used the POR with good results, but when I went to Herculine my tub I had a hard time getting the liner to stick to a small section of PORed floor. I wound up knocking down the POR with some 80 grit on an orbital sander to get it where the liner would stick. I think just some rust converter and themn liner over it would be fine.

Naval Jelly is a good rust converter. But it eats paint, but as long as you are putting herculiner over it I guess missing paint doesn't matter. Just follow the instructions on the bottle and it'll work great.

Ospho has always worked well for me. You should be able to find it at Home Depot or Lowes for around $18 a gallon. The stuff is almost like water in consistency, so I would swab it on with a brush or sponge (wear gloves and eye protection - the phosphoric acid will burn), and let it soak into all the nooks and crannies, allow it to dry at least overnight, then do it again.

Dealing with rust is a pain, and it does take a lot of time, but at least you know that the job will be done right, and it will feel really good to have the finished product. Just stick with it.
