    Default Rust converter

    I pulled up my carpet to redo the floor and found surface rust, no holes, but a bit more to wheel off. Has anyone used a rust converter? I was wondering which ones work the best.

    Thanks

    Easywood has a lot of nice products, look for a product called POR 15. It stands for Paint Over Rust. Not sure about the 15

    Thanks guys, I came across Eastwood and a few others, I want to go with this stuff called Coroseal. I have found the more information on it than anything else. Just need to cover this rust properly before I hurculine the floor. I will give Eastwood a second look. Thanks again.

    Sorry this may be slightly OFF topic....But, Im in the process of repairing a rusty drver floorpan on my comanche, & the rust is so severe the entire front floorpan needas to be replaced. I have already realized what Im up against for replacing the Pan , but my problem is.....the frmae channel that runs on top of the floor pan and goes kinda from the back of the seat area, all the way up to the toeboard. Is there any where that has these pieces of frame? Basically the "pan" is kinda sandwhiched between the lower frame under the truck & the Inner frame of the interior. Its about 3-4 inches wide & slims down to about a 1/4" tall at the toeboard. I need this piece of frame badly. Any leads as to where to find one? tyvvm in advance~

    I use coreless (same paint they use on the golden gate bridge). All the stuff Eastwood has is excellent.

    I would use a rust converter before you paint. It will neutralise the rust. Google it. Its a liquid.

    I used POR15 too. a Bit pricey kinda....but it falls into the "get what ya pay for" catagory. So Far,Im very satisfied with the POR15,Because even though it could be many many months before i could give a true review of POR15,i can say...Ive had to remove some that I put on an area too soon, and it was a Nightmare to remove lol Finally used the Grinder wheel to Grind it off & even that wasnt easy to do.
