Odd, I just checked the website, and Advance down the road shows it in stock. It was not the last time I needed to buy some.

I buy Miracle paint from Bill Hirsch, who, BTW, just passed away last week.

I have used Krud Buster with good results. I get it at mobile home supply. They sell it to treat rusty roofs.

I’ve used this “chassis saver” before with good results. Similar to POR but a little thicker and it is available in satin black.

Rust Bullet. I have used it extensively. Can be brushed or sprayed. Doesn't chip or peel.

I used Krud Kutter to remove the dusty rust, and then spray down Plasti-Dip.

I used Corroseal, and it really easy to use. Cleans up with water, and is paintable in 24 hours. My $ .02

Spray the floor with the stuff in the photo...24 hours later, paint it with oil based Rustoleum....you will never have to check for rust inside again....easy, fast and cheap...

Certainly NOT a fan of Por-15.

Yes Skizz....the RUST FIX by Dupli-color....not any of the spray paint.

In the cars that I built ground up, I would spray the rust fixed floors with Epoxy Primer, then sometimes coat the floor with fiberglass resin, then oil based paint...I think that was just overkill.

I just fixed the floor in my 66, it had an area about 12x12 that had some small rust holes...someone had removed the rubber plug and I found it next to the tunnel under the old carpet. This allowed water to enter the floor and sit there and rust. I put fiberglass cloth and fiberglassed it with 3M fiberglass resin...THAT IS THE LAST TIME I DO THAT. Like 6 mo ago, I did the trunk area on my 64 conv and it never dried...on my 66, I actually added more hardner and it never dried and I had done the whole floor, 4 weeks later, still not dry. I had to take Acetone and other stuff and remove the 3M mess....then painted it with Rustoleum oil based paint...better!!

Ive used hammerite rustcap, the smooth version. It goes on thick and starts to dry fast. I used it a few times and it works really well.

There are 2 types of fiberglass resin, polyester and epoxy, generally polyester is used for construction and epoxy for repairs because it is stronger. Epoxy resin will not cure if the ratio of hardener is not close enough, polyester resin will cure eventually as long as the hardener was mixed in completely, I've seen polyester resin mixed with enough hardener it setup in about 3 minutes then got so hot it started smoking.
I've heard of people using POR15 as resin with fiberglass for covering pinholes like you mentioned.

Thanks Moomba...I never had any problems before using it...I have painted the roof gutters in all of my cars with it but this 3M brand is not that good. This was my first time using 3M on it on my 64 and 66. If I use FG resin again...it will be from the professional body shop like I saw last week in there picking up some sandpaper and checking on Epoxy primer and 2K primer for my 64 conv...NO more 3M and that used to the gold standard...not now....been a while since painting my 49 Fleetline so had to check things out...hope to paint the 64 conv and put it on the market in spring.

IMO, Rust Bullet is far superior to POR-15. It will stick to existing primer and is UV stable. I know you said you wanted it locally, but Rust Bullet is available on Amazon so you can have it in a few days.
