Default undercoating materials?

Hope I am in the right spot for this thread. Long story short My gas tank straps broke lifted the bed and there was a bunch of rust on my frame and underneath the bed. So the plan sand blast the frame and undercoat using a bedliner product. Been asking around and got referred to a product called OSPHO. Seems good having a hard time finding it locally here in New York. So anybody have any opinions or experience with this product? Or similar products? I see I would still have to prime it and thats fine as this would be to just stop and prevent any further rust. Any and all advice welcome.

I just gave instruction to a member on how I did mine. Check exterior tech threads look for the thread called "undercoat your own"

Thumbs up Re: undercoating materials?

i actually just finished my exhaust mounting my new bed and undercoating my entire ranger. i used a product called POR15 i have used it on many occasions and by far it is the best of the best when it comes to stopping rust and keeping it from coming back. you can check out my album called "new stuff" you can see some of the frame and what it looks like. i will post more pictures tomorrow because as i said i just finished and its to dark for pictures now. as far as the POR15 is concerned it is almost bullet proof it doesn't chip, peel or fade over years and unlike using a spray on undercoat or bed liner POR15 actually STOPS the rust!!! check it out, hope i helped http://www.por15.com/

Thanks Danger Ranger. Nice job thats exactly what I'm looking to do. Did you lift the cab to get under it or were you able to coat the frame pretty well with it on. My ranger is a 97 so it should be darn near identical work wise. Did you use there chassis black product? What about the 2 steps of cleaners they recommend did you do those as well? Sorry Bro dont mean to pound you with questions appreciate the post and nice pics do you have any of before you coated the frame

ok i just did a over haul on my truck so at the time the bed was off which i highly recommend its only 6 bolts and 3 screws to disconnect the gas fill and then you just need man power or a lift and your good to go howerver my cab was on so i just jecked up the front as much as possible and just coated the etire underside rocker to rocker. and i just used there standard por 15 product chassis black or glossy black i picked up at senel auto near me. as for the prep i used a wire brush and a hardcore drill with a brush bit and went to town on the frame for a day then i chipped any last rust bits off with a putty knife and called it good, i then took a spray bottle and filled it with the metalk ready solution and then strayed the crap outa the entire frame leaving it sit for a hour then srayed of any excess with the hose and waited for it to dry. after it was dry i started with the por15. WEAR GLOVES!!! my hands are still covered in por15 and it was over a week ago i did the job its nasty shit but there is nothing better. no problem by the way good luck
