Suspension component/ chassis paint

    I am looking to purchase some black chassis paint to paint some suspension components.

    Years ago I used Hammerite and it gave a reasonably good result but having used modern hammertite a few months back I found it just isn't the same stuff, they have obviously removed an important ingredient :mad:

    I am looking at POR15 as a paint on product or Eastwoods spray on product. I like the idea of spraying with eastwood to avoid brush marks etc and just wondering if anyone here has experience of either.

    Thanks :)

    PORS 15 is a good product, i usually hammerite over the top of it.

    Good luck

    Yes I have read a lot of good things about POR 15. The fact I can spray on the Eastwood stuff is stalling me....still not sure which to go with.

    Going to avoid the hammerite though, just doesn't seem to be made like the old stuff.

    I have used this

    and found it very good. It is prone to brush marks but comes with thinners for spraying. I just dabbed it with the brush afterwards which gave a stippled finish not unlike hammerite.

    Bilt hamber's range is unbeatable for rust protection imo. They are also the easiest to use.

    Something like bilt hamber dynax ub or uc would do the job perfect.

    I've used Tetrosyl Chassis Black on my Spitfire chassis and suspension components. Done almost 3k miles on it since late last year and its holding up very well. Its tough stuff and has resisted petrol and celly thinners so far, can be sprayed on easily when thinned a little and give a nice glossy finish.
