Well my friends, I've been reading the posts for a few months now and I've been gaining my interest back. Other than moving parts and the trailer, I havent touched her for two or three years. The car is a 69 mach 1 that's been entirely stripped down to the shell. I have many of the need parts to get started on it and the POR15 just came in the mail today. Unfortunately, it's supposed to rain all weekend here in Minnesota so I wont get to try it out. I will however get her hung from the rafters so she'll be ready for the undercarriage makeover. Wish me luck.

The POR15 LIKES humid weather, if I remember correctly. So unless you can't do the work inside, the weather shouldn't keep you from painting. Good luck!!

Read the POR-15 instructions. Because of the composition of the POR-15, they claim it actually works better if you paint it in the rain! You don't need to let rain stop you from putting on the POR-15.

I read through everything once and I got the idea that POR15 does like moisture... after it has cured. It said something about not painting when it's humid because carbon dioxide could get under the paint and cause problems later.

ORDINARY paints are softened, weakened and eventually destroyed by moisture.

POR-15 is STRENGTHENED by moisture. It has the REVERSE chemistry of ORDINARY paints. It sticks to metal like nothing you have ever seen, and forms a rock-hard, non-porous coating. ORDINARY paints dry faster on dry, sunny days. POR-15 dries faster on HUMID, DAMP, RAINY days


Hope this helps.

Does the POR-15 Build up...kinda like a undercoat? Also, I saw an ad in a boating magazine tonight for POR-15 Marine Anybody ever used it?

Hey Jim, I'm from Maplewood. Hearing you're from Maple Grove reminds me of when I went off-roading in the gravel pits a ways back behind the community center. I got stuck in a mud pit and tried for four hours to dig out the tires enough to get some pieces of wood underneath. The funny thing was, I was with a girl and it was our first date. She never complained and even helped dig. It was humbling to walk to town all covered in mud to get someone to pull me out. A friendly lifted Chevy at Cub foods was of great help. Ahh the good ol' days. It's probably a shopping center now.
