I don't think(hope) so. I did my frame and a lot of the underside a few years ago without top coating and it's holding up great.

I only had a few small areas that were difficult to reach and probably the only places I didn't jump through the hoops, and this is where it peeled. Other than that, it's holding up great.

Btw, they now have a rattle can option for top coat/detail, I was hesitant at first just because I've never paid $26. for a rattle can, but damn, it's nice! Sprays nice thick coats and levels very nice.

Re: POR-15 Opinions

Great Thread! Plan on using it to touch up a couple areas of a frame that was PC'd last year.

The 1960APE what does this mean? Never heard of it before.

A Needle Gun is a pneumatic tool for removing rust. Google "needlegun scaler"

Rustoleum is a good product as well.

Re: POR-15 Opinions

7 years ago I replaced the original wood bed in my 59 GMC. (What was left of it.) I noticed some protected slivers of wood had black paint on them. A friend told me that when new, GMC coated the wood with "Lamp Black" to preserve them. No fancy varnishes or stain were used.

When I got my new pine bed kit, I brushed both sides of the wood with POR-15. Today the finish is a dull black with a few tiny spots where a shovel has nicked the coating off. (I haul gravel in it periodically.) Other than those little spots, it looks great. Totally zero maintenance and my truck has not seen the inside of a garage since 1992! -Steve
