    Hi,
    The chassis on my Cabrio is in need of some cleaning up and repainting.
    Has anyone found a really good, long lasting, rust preventing paint system?
    Thanks in anticipation.
    Mike

    I and others have had some success with Aldi "Deco" metal care paint. But the supply is unreliable.

    Hi Mike.
    I have used the following with good results. It has been mentioned elsewhere on the forum.

    Rustoleum Combi Colour Original, black satin gloss. It is an exact match for the infamous powder coating.

    It is in tins and brushes straight on to rust. Obviously degrease and wire brush first. Don’t get the aerosols its not the same! The combi colour brushing version smells, works and lasts like the old Finnegans smoothrite before the green zealots ruined it.

    I bought mine from Brewers, Alphington Retail Park, EX2 8NH. They are next door to Dreams bed store by Sainsburys super store.

    BTW it was me that waved to you in Russell Way, as you were driving into Tescos a few days ago. Pop in for a cuppa next time! Peter.

    Totally agree. Rustoleum is absolutely brill doesn't chip like Finnegans as paint is flexible.

    I used the POR 15 system in 2017 to treat the front end of the chassis of my car. As reported elsewhere, it is very unpleasant to use as it doesn't come off bear skin and the preparation is also quite long winded. The best thing is to buy several small tins, with the aim of using the whole of one small tin per painting session....you cannot re-open a closed half used tin...it isn't possible. Wear nitrile gloves or similar....and don't skip the metal prep...cleaning and much spraying with POR15's special metal-prep fluid. Having said all that, I'm pleased with the results two years on....but when I tackle the rear half of my chassis later in the year I shall be using Rustoleum, as greyV8pete recommends.

    You could do worse than to check out Buzzweld products. They are much favoured by many of the Landrover fraternity.

    Craig also has a Facebook page for those interested
