Autoxsteve reminded me about the POR 15 test I am currently doing. I used the stuff this weekend on Coppertone. I wore gloves but I still got some on my hands and arms. Let me warn those of you who haven't used this stuff. IT DOESN'T COME OFF ONCE IT DRIES. CLEAN WITH LACQUER THINNER IMMEDIATELY UPON CONTACT.

I'll let you know if and when it comes off. Luckily I got the spot off my nose before it hardened. *hehe*

Despite the humid conditions (showers, baths, summer) they are exposed to, my bet is that your hands, arms, and nose won't rust anytime soon either......;) Dickson

Everything I've heard about POR 15 is positive, but I used Corroless (from Eastwood) on my '66. I figured that if it was strong enough to use on North Sea oil platforms it could handle my Mustang...plus, it seems to come off the skin with mineral spirits--a lot more user-friendly than acetone.

Maybe so, but why take the easy way out?
Where can I buy POR15 - I'm gonna need at LEAST a gallon of the stuff.

I shot the entire engine bay of my '65 project with POR-15. I stupidly didn't wear a mask (painting outside in the driveway). After we're done, I look at my son who says "oh, s&*t! Go look in the mirror!" My teeth were all black *LOL*. Some very quick and aggressive scrubbing got it off, but the stuff on hands and arms took about a week to come off.

I used the stuff in ample quantities on my 71. I learned about the skin thing the hard way during a MAJOR cowl repair. On the 71's, it's possible to remove covers and reach into the cowl to repair. Well, this is exactly what I did with fiberglass cloth, epoxy putty, and LOTS of POR-15. By the time I finished the patch job, I had that stuff smeared and cured from fingertips to elbows. That's when I learned it doesn't come off skin once dry. For the next month, I had black streaked hands and arms till enough skin finally flaked off.

Now I wear gloves!

My thoughts exactly! Notice how he so eloquantly slips in his confession in another post so he can avoid the Doofus of the Year award. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

Well at least you didn't have it all over your hands and then go take a leak like this one guy did a while back. Story was all over the net, what a riot.

Do you remember the link posted a year or so about the Guy who got por15 on his whatchamacallit? Apparently he was in the middle of applying the stuff when nature called. I wish I still had the link, It was great.
