I ordered some of this rust treatment. Len Stuart recommends them highly. I'll tell you what I think after I try it.

Thanks for your order, Steve, I'm confident that you'll find Zero Rust to your liking as many auto restorers have.
Just as we've made Len Stuart believe our story, Kevin Tetz at www.paintucation.com is restoring a mustang (I think I'm accurate here) and as both of these guys are professional painters, their opinions ought to be worth listening to.
I look forward to seeing your feedback.

Hey Steve. How is it applied? What type of prep work is needed? Is it a spray? Where did you order it?

I've been thinking about using a product like this for some of the metal on my 5.0 before it's put back together and painted.

Any product info you have on it would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Stewart

How does this product compare to Corroless rust paint. I just recieved a quart of it (Corroless) from eastwood.

I've been using zero rust on my new trunk floor/tailight panel. I will also use it on the inside of the rear quarters and other body panels. I like the fact that it does not require a primer, it does not require a top coat, it does not require a perfect surface, and it lasts 2000+ hours salt spray test without rusting. I learned of this product on autobodystore.com, great site for paint and body info. Thanks, Tom

Thanks Tom for your comments, which are not unusual once guys get their hands on our rust fighting product. All the advertizing
in the world can't beat first hand comments from a user.
Steve, have you shot any of the Zero Rust yet? Am curious what your thoughts are.

I only have one problem with the Zero Rust. I wish I could get a semi gloss sheen with the stuff. By itself it's too flat. The clear coat is too glossy for my uses.
I was thinking of mixing in a little clear with the black to gloss it up some. Whatcha think Irish???

Tim:
Just shoot some Crystal Coat OVER the top of your Zero Rust to gain the glossiness you are looking for. It might work well if incorporated, however I know it works as a finish coat, providing a non-spidering, non-yellowing clear finish (guys even use it to protect aluminum wheels)!
ZR was formulated for basic rust control and its air-dried appearance wasn't a major consideration. When auto restorers began commenting as you have, our Crystal Coat was then developed to provide both UV protection and the gloss factor.
Try shooting one, maybe two coats and see if that gets you to the sheen you seek; however if not, shoot one or two more-as glossiness increases with film thickness.
Hope that helps.

Not yet, things have hit a slowdown here. How cold can these paints be stored?

Steve:
There is no cautionary reference on the MSDS' to low temps and storage. The only note is relative to HIGH temperatures, above 120 degrees F.
What with the paint's volatiles, I don't think you need to worry about low temps, but common sense would probably dictate that a guy NOT try to see what a Maine winter might do to a rattle can or a bulk can of ZR!
"How low can she go?"

My garage gets as low as 40-45 degrees. I was wondering if freezing temps would ruin them if the temps would get below 32.

Steve, Have you had a chance yet to try the zero rust? I have about 1/3 of the front end on my 65 sand blasted, probably need to order either zero rust or Corrolless. Anybody got preferences? Also I want to be able to paint over, can you with zero rust?

Is it necessary to use prep-step BEFORE applying Zero Rust? I'm talking about application over rust that has been prepped ie loose rust particle, foreign materials removed. I like the idea of the colors. Is it UV sensitive like Por 15? Thinking of using it on wrought iron that faces South and East in hot So. Fl. sunlight

For a wrought iron application, I would suggest spraying with Prep-Step, if for no other reason than to help prolong the life of the paint job. It is NOT a requirement, however, before shooting Zero Rust.
ZR does not contain UV blockers and will tend to fade after exposure to natural sunlight, so we developed Crystal Coat, a clear acrylic lacquer for two purposes: UV blockers AND a glossy finish.
If you don't like ZR's 10 colors, shoot your choice of a topcoat, but start with the ZR to give you the rust protection you really need for that steel.
Hope this helps.

OK, I ordered some Zero Rust, Mainly because of their great web site and ease of ordering. The other Alternative was Corroless through Eastwodd and I have not been real happy with their web site. Also did not have all the neat testimonials like zero rust's site. I am trying the aerosol cans with prep-step, 1st coat red oxide, 2nd coat Black, then Crystal Coat. I am now about 2/3 done sandblasting and cleaning the front end of the 65.
