With all the metal removed, we sandblasted the torsion bar crossmember, the front framerails, and the inner rocker areas, which actually turned out to be in decent shape. We then coated everything with KBS Coatings' RustSeal, which provides superior rust protection when coated directly over a minimally prepared surface. This proven three-step system includes: AquaKlean-a water-based cleaner/degreaser; RustBlast-a powerful water-based rust remover and zinc phosphate pre-primer and metal etch; and RustSeal-a one part, ready-to-use, high-solid content, rock-hard, paint-over-rust coating. RustSeal can be painted directly over rust to coat and seal the surface with a flexible, non-porous barrier to permanently seal out moisture and oxygen, which causes rust and corrosion.
