Not the brown bottle I hope. The floors didn't push you over the edge I hope??

Nope. Been there, done that.

I finally got the wrong coating off the floors, and side walls, and rockers, and front foot panels...

I tested some POR15 on a small area and was not impressed. It went on like water, too thin.

Instead, since the metal was so clean now, I chose to coat the entire floor area with a PPG epoxy coating. (I've used it before) Goes on thick and fills all the seams. I got a semi-rigid seam sealer down and coated over that. I have to now re-tap all my bolt holes because the epoxy got in the threads. Half done with that. I'll get some pics tonight.

Just pondering out loud. If you used the 2 part PPG
industrial grade epoxy coating, you probably should
let it fully cure out for 7 to 10 days before you apply
anything over it.

Depending upon what mil thickness you applied, you
might not need to put ANYTHING over it.

That is--IF you used the 2 part, industrial stuff.

When I read about your Crypty-ish floor nightmare,
I immediately decided I would go directly to epoxy
coatings for mine.

I guess you two really are Kindred Spirits, of sorts.........

Well, at least when it comes to floor pans.

Bill, POR 15 is very thin, but it does get as hard as a rock. The important thing is that you're happy with whatever you put on. And that your paint will stick to it.

Good luck,
