Any Opinions on POR 15 Paint ?

Just wondering if anyone uses POR 15 anti rust paint, and the long term results?

Used it extensively in auto restorations. It has stood the test of time (10 years on one the cars I still have!) Outstanding stuff!

I have used it on non-marine applications (vintage Airstream trailer restoration) and it's amazing stuff, very strong.

While I have never used it, this article where POR15 is used may be useful to you. It made me think I should try it. Painting on Rusted Steel

I'm a classic car guy, and I've used it extensively on cars. I've also used it on the motor mounts on our boat.

This stuff is really pretty amazing. I do remember a post many years ago about a guy who was painting the bottom of his SUV with it. He took a break to take a leak, and got some on his equipment. The subsequent thread was hilarious. In any case, it does NOT come off anything you get it on! Well, it will wear off...
