OK so I will be driving the Fleetwood through winter. I have steelies and snow tires on it already. Last year I did a half assed job on the Roadmaster. The rust did seep back through the shitty coat of spray paint.



I want to give the wheels another coat of red paint. I like them red it gives it a nice subtle touch.

My plans this time:

Scrape everything using surfacing discs and or wire brush.

Rust converter with a brush

Spray on paintable rubberized undercoat

Paint floors white, frame and suspension black

I have access to a lift so I'll be able to do this in an afternoon.







Any other suggestions? (I'll be less stubborn this time) Smile

Sem Rust-shield. Hands down the best paint Eva! Do it once and forget about it.

Optional: Chainsaw oil does work well

Where can I get the stuff and how much does it run? How much would I need? I see it comes in different colors. I can just buy white and black and be done.

It's expensive but less than POR-15. Robbins Auto Parts has it in stock up here. They have a compatible lower cost hardner and gloss enhancer.

I will say try using a good application of a paint and frequent underbody washing in lieu of undercoating, I used it and had good luck but sometimes I feel like it could trap in moisture if not applied well. I want to try that SEM stuff, friend used it on his old Caddy and liked it.

Usually the rubberized junk traps in moisture and causes rust anyway.


Fluid film is very good and it does not run off it only keeps creeping into other places. You just have to be interested in a greasy undercarriage.
