    Primer first.

    I've used VHT roll bar spray paint and VHT epoxy paint and had great success. Covers very well, both are very durable, and available at most parts houses so if you just need to touch up an area you can run down at 830 on a friday night, pickup a can, an whamo, car looks good again :D

    On my rock crawler I used a oil based primer and sprayed it followed by Rustolum industrial oil based paint. Its held up pretty well and is easy to touch up with a rattle can. For my new DSR1 I'm thinking more on the lines of powder coating because it shouldn't get near the amount of rock abuse.

    Rusty, like everything else, the more you are willing to pay, the better the product.

    BEST: powder coating, most durible, highest price but coming down. I won't even shoot car and truck chassis anymore. My powder coater will coat a frame for $250. I have my sand blaster blast it and I load it and take it to him. I can't even buy the paint & primer material for that with shop discount.

    GOOD: Emron from DuPont, most durable paint out there but if you use it, make sure you have a fresh air helmet or a 3M respirator with VERY GOOD ventilation, Stuff is tough as nails but tough on your lungs and brain if you are inhaling it.

    WORST: Anything rattle can! Don't even waste your time or money. Product must be at least a 2 part system with catlyst to be anything near durable. Do it once and be done with it! Hope this helps

    When powder coating isnt an option.I've been using the paint for plastics from rustolium.Its a spray paint with a adhesion promoter.It sticks like crazy,and doesnt need a primer,and comes in a lot of differant colors,and sheens.Seems to go on smoother,and doesnt peal or scratch easy.Its better then all the other spray cans I've tried.

    Second vote for POR-15.

    That stuff is amazingly durable and you can grind it off to make changes to the car if necessary. Paint on some more and you will never know. A little pricy but I prefer it over powder all day long.

    It took me at the Very least 10 cans of vht to paint my cage and that was thin IMO but mine is probally WAY Bigger than yours:cool:

    [​IMG]

    I am still not happy with it scratched easy and rubbed off easy on heavy use spots...Also everything costs more in socal. Its almost 9.00@ autozone here. I was pressed for paint before a pismo trip or I would have imported some auto satain black paint and done it right..
    I will post if it lasts better:D
