    Can't remove all the rust?
    I like it.
    Been using it for years with good results.

      You must remove ALL the rust and then cover the metal with a product that deprives the metal of oxygen and moisture . There is no easy , cheap way to do this . Blast the rust , etching primer , sealer and I use LIzard Skin on the inside and paint & clear . When done keep car out of sunlight and rain when not in use .

        As a fellow cheesehead, don't drive on Wisconsin roads when they are wet. You'd think the salt would be washed away by June, but it's not. That salt compounds the problem immensely.Wash it down with clean water, and get it dry if you do. Shop-vac with a blower and a long hose to get it dry. If you're on a budget, old drained motor oil works good, make sure get it in the nooks and crannies. That leaves a smell though.

          I have been doing this a long time and tried most all the new and latest stuff and I keep going back to Rustoleum. It's the absolute best product, IMO. And no, you don't have to get all the rust off. You do however need to get all the loose rust and scale off. I hear everybody hollering "POR15" all the time. I've used it. It's a GIANT MESS. It will get up your butt and there's no explanation of how it got there. It gets everywhere. Plus, you have the extra expense and labor of having to top coat it, because ultra violet light breaks it down? Paint the shit TWICE? I don't think so, Tim. Not this honky. One time and done. Rustoleum.

            Rusty, would the Rustoleum work ok for spraying inside the front frame rails? Is it thin enough to spray through a cheap deck sprayer, or would it need to be thinned and multiple coats applied? (Sorry for hijacking your post a bit, OP).

              Rustoleum oil based will have to be thinned to spray.

                I used Rustoleum on the bottom of my 71 Barracuda as well, but I prepped the underneath with Rust Mort first. Picture of my homemade redneck rotisserie for fun. Rod

                  Heck yeah! I really like that. I wonder if you could post some more pics of the rotisserie to give us some ideas. Thanks.

                  I too have used Rust-Mort with good results. It can be sprayed, but should be top coated when completely dry.

                      I love Ospho and have use it for years. Be careful. It needs to dry a day or two, before coating. It can react with some paints primers if not neutralized with water. ( ie: Sothern Urethanes epoxy they will tell you) Ii love it to get into the rusted pits, that no DA or wire cup can get to completely.
                      Like said the heavy Rusteolum works great for me to coat floors , underside, etc. It will not keep a gloss out in the weather for that long/

                        I have some basic measurements for my redneck rotisserie I used to clean up and paint my underside of my 71 Barracuda. I threw it together without much thought. I added a few inches on both sides of overall width of my car. Since I wanted to to be able roll on its side in the garage, I kept the overall height to a minimum. I bolted the rear wood to the rear bumper brackets and bolted 2 by 6's to the front frame rails. Wood glue and screws holds it together. Two men rolled it on its side. I put carpet under the wood as car wanted to slide on the slick garage floor when rolling it over. The effort to roll it became less as it the car came closer to vertical. I added a leg to the rotisserie after the car was on its side to keep it stable. If you only roll it one direction, as I ended up doing, you only need one side to have the arc.
