Tom G posted a topic in 2000-2014 Silverado & Sierra HDI am new, guys, to painting for rust prevention. According to the research I have done, this is what I will do. Like I said brand new. 1. Wire wheel and sandpaper- taking off rust and any paint, bringin to bare metal 2. Bondo where necessary 3. OSPHO 4.sand 5.Marine Clean 6.Tape up 7.Primer (POR 15 Metal Prep), sand, clean, primer, sand clean, primer, sand clean, bondo, sand primer, clean 8.POR 15 Rust preventative coating (lightest coat, light coat, then a wooly jacket kinda coat) 9.let cure for 24 hours 10.Top Coat (What are some good brands of rubberized type top coats that arent cheap?) 11. Clear coat if Im feeling like a real pro. 12. wet sand with 15xx and 20xx 13. Drive away happy and get some cough syrup. Where am I going wrong? What extra should I do, whose back to I have to scratch to get the in on how to do this the best way? Thanks to Ya.
2015 2500 HD with 137k miles already. I am the second owner and plan on keeping this truck for a very long time. What can I do now to help slow down or prevent rust. Iowa winters (salt, sand, and the liquid salt) are rough on frames. Fluid film? Take truck to a shop and let them undercoat the bottom? Other options? I try to wash the truck when the temperature is reasonable here.
