so it would do the trick if i bondo the rockers then cover them in por 15 you think it will really prevent the rust for along time

I have done some serious research on that stuff and it's what I'm going to use. I don't have a rust problem so I might not use the actual POR-15, but I will definately use the Tie Coat. It's only $50 a gallon and can be top coated with anything.

bondo's not waterproof, duraglass is. it has fiberglass in it

Use the POR 15!!!!! When I worked on another car, I actually used it as an etcher on bare metal, and no oxidation reached the surface of the car after a year of rain and sun.

:nono: Por-15 and bondo do not mix, like water and oil. I put Por-15 on my Chevy II Nova were the roof is connected to the quarter panel on the top. From the factory, GM filled it in with lead(shitty job they did from factory). I painted it with Por-15 and the next morning I spread bondo over it and smoothed it out. Once the bondo started to setup. It started to roll like up in little balls the more I tryed to smooth it out. It took me two hours to get the bondo and the Por-15 off of the car(I was pissed by now) once the Por-15 was off the car. I spread the bondo back on the roof line and once it setup. I sanded it smooth and you couldn't even see the roof line. Por-15 is only GOOD for the inside of fender wells,quarter panel,door skins,fender and what not. Any place were Water can get to. POR-15 is excellent for undercarages of vehicles like floor pan and frames. Por-15 is expense but its well worth the money. My V8 S10 shorty heddman headers are painted with Por-20 heat resistant paint. All you have to do is sandblast them and paint them with the Por-20 paint. Once you start the motor up and bring it up to operating temp,that will cure the paint. The paint "WILL NOT" flack off if you do it right. Once you sandblast the headers,blow the headers off with a air holes and paint them. "DO NOT" use any type of cleaner on the headers before you paint them.

Before I forget: Por-15 is a bitch to sand off once it sets up. Even with using a da-sander. Its even hard to sandblast Por-15 once it's setup...!!!

Why would you apply bondo over any primer?? That's a nono right there. You have to sand with 40 grit then clean well with acetone/MEK/MC. The question is, does POR 15 apply over bondo? If it causes orange peel or wrinkles there is definately a problem.
Has anyone use the Por Tie-Coat?? The one that is supposed to cover the POR 15 so auto paint will adhere right. I want to use that stuff to go over my existing primer so I can get it painted with out worrying if I have a compatable primer.

I did not use por-15 as a primer, but as a metal protecter.
You can not use bondo over por-15. And I did not put bondo over a primer. A question for you slick, have you ever tried to sand por-15? I take it that you have not!!! Por-15 gets in the pits of the metal and its hard to get it out. There is only one solvent that will thin por-15 down and it not thinner. Por-15 will NOT dry if its mixed with thinner. Been there and done that. Tech support from por-15 will tell you that right away. As for putting por-15 over bondo,why would you do that for??? Por-15 is for sealing rust,not for sealing bondo. Also, por-15 work's better on clean metal instead of rusty metal. Por-15 is vey flexible, it can be bent 90 degrees and it wont crack at all.

As for the solvent that thins por-15 down, you'll have to call tech support at por-15. I forgot the name of it.

Two choices for removal, paint stripper (Aircraft Paint Remover) or any other brand as long as it ain't crap or you can pull out a propane torch and heat it up, it will come off like the peel of an orange.

iaght from what you guys say this is what iam planning on doing iam gonna strip the paint off the rockers then cut out the tiny rust holes and fill with duraglass cause it is water resistant then iam gonna coat the rocker panels with por -15 then get them painted does this sound right and do you think it will work for me iam looking to end rust for ever cause it pisses me off and iam not rich enough to have a body shop cut and weld new panels what do you guys think i have learned alot here so please keep helping i appreciate it alot

i hope this helps the tech info ----> ANSWER: I would suggest applying two thin covering coats of POR-15 over the
rusted area. When the second coat is tacky I would then cut a piece of
fiberglass cloth and lay it over the POR-15. Next apply another 1-2 thin
covering coats of POR-15 over the cloth. Allow the surface to dry then
scuff the surface and apply your body filler and paint. Any further
questions call 1-800-457-6715 or email www.por15.com
