    Eastwood has the best coatings in the market. They have a red oxide primer that will kill rust. Just buff off the loose stuff with scotch brite pads, wire wheel, or sand paper. Then paint the part. You can even do it with a paint brush. It will even out and the rust is gone. Be careful to not get it on anything you don't want it on... it's not going to come off. I have treated the frame of my 64 Galaxie with the primer and topped it with the chassis black. The chassis black is the perfect color. Not flat and not glossy. Looks just like the factory color of black. The underside of the body of the Galaxie was done with the red oxide primer and I used their liquid bedliner as an undercoat. Their liquid bedliner is tougher than the others I have seen in the market. It is a two part that you have to mix. Have not tried the rust encapsolator yet.

    Once the rust has been converted, any non-pourous coating will work to "encapsulate" it, it's only just a matter of personal preference which one you want to use. If you don't convert the rust prior to using the products though, you just wasted your time, as the rust will continue on underneath the coating until it gets bad enough to flake it back off. Don't get me wrong here I really like eastwoods stuff, but wouldn't recommend their Rust Encapsulator over Por15, as it clearly is an inferior coating. I've used both extensively, and many other competent body/paint people would agree, but as always people are only gonna go with whatever they see as being best inside their mind, regardless of reality. I know what I'm sticking with though, the proven winner.

    If your more concerned with price than quality, I'd say go for it.

    I used Zero Rust on my old snapper Riding Lawnmower and it does work. Seems to hold up well.

    That little can in the starter kit should be just right for the size job. I used "Chassis Saver" before on the rear chassis of my '96 Cutlass a few years ago. That stuff worked well, only thing is it didn't store well and I lost half a $40 can of it! I learned later to pickup a couple of Mason jars to store it in.
