Re: What should I use on my frame?
I painted my frame with silver Hammerite and I'm verry happy. Although my Jeep is in the "Rolling Chassis" phase of the rebuild, I have dropped tools on it and cant find a mark. According to the can, you dont use ANY type of basecoat or primer. Scrape off the chunks of rust (Mine was a new frame, so I skipped this part), completely degrease with acetone or something of the same nature, and paint. It is supposed to be over 60 deg. when you paint, and it takes 2 weeks to cure, but it is rock hard! I used the Hammerite "Rust Cap", so I'm not sure on the directions for the regular Hammerite. Good luck!
