They put Raptor liner around the bottom of the truck came out pretty nice.
I gotta give that stuff a try....I live in New England so I know all about rust....I have an 03 1500 with 177xxx miles so it has some rust but nothing more than usual
My frame was a disaster....
My frame is starting to show some rust. Should I try to remove by sanding the rust off as much as I can before painting over? Or just sand some and paint?
I just had loose the material removed before paint.
I cleaned and wire brushed mine as clean as I could get it. But I just used rustoleum primer and paint, surprisingly it's held up to 2 winters in Ontario so far. I find the oil spray makes the biggest difference to keeping vehicles rust free. It's sad seeing all the 3rd gens age and rot away. I've always loved them since I was little, wish I could afford to buy a few southern ones and store them away lol.
I love my 2nd gen, so I´m trying to keep it as good in condition as I can. Being in Wisconsin its hard to keep anything rust free for long lucky mine came from Arizona 10 years ago and was stored for a while so there is only little surface rust. What is the oil spray? would you suggest the spray or paint?
Hi there, Well I painted mine first. That was early spring drove it all summer and then sprayed the whole underside and inside frame tubes and rockers with a product called fluid film. Look it up, Very good product for keeping metal protected from rust. It creeps really well into small crevices and doesn't really drip. There are other under spray coatings that work good too but fluid film is worth the extra$$
