Lol must be nice. Whole reason I even got my Z was to save the Passat from that crap that they treat the roads with. Now that I'm putting all this time in to the truck I wanna save it too 😂.Since I didn't want to wait to mail order POR15 or KBS I went to ACE Hardware and got Rustoleum rust seal primer/sealer that you can paint over rust supposedly even though I'm getting 99.9% of the rust off. Then I'm top coating with ACE's rust stop gloss black. I'm thinking that now that I'm retired and don't have to drive to work when they are dousing the roads with mag chloride when 2 snowflakes fall it should hold up fairly well. When it snows now I just sit and watch through the window and wait for the roads to dry. 🤣
Frame is looking good tho, but you might wanna look into finishing it with some automotive 2k clear or something. The rustoleum I used when I did my frame before I started swapping it only lasted about a year before it had decent little knicks and chips. I wire wheeled the frame pretty **** clean too, and used their red rust primer, but I think their paint is more suited for small static projects and not meant for tough automotive use.
