Eastwood chassis black

I need to order paint for the axle housings/suspension/etc and haven't used any of Eastwood's products. Should I go with regular chassis black, extreme, or 2k?

I've read the reviews and i'm leaning towards regular or extreme but I wanted to see if anyone here has used the products before I order. I will be ordering the quart sizes, not the spray cans.

Thanks in advance for your input.

The extreme is the better improved version- don't get gloss

Prep is the key to have the stuff stick. Make sure you follow the directions. I think they make an etching coat to prep.

x2 on the extreme, and as Doug said get the semi-gloss (it's glossy enough as that is). I painted my front axle tube and trailing arms with the semi gloss and I've been happy with it.

When I did the rear crossmember on the 110, I actually used the extreme in conjunction with 2 layers of the Eastwood Rust Encapsulator as well - this is a damn good combination in my opinion.

I heard this chassis saver product is better

No personal experience with it though - just need to make the same decision soon as well.

The encapsulator makes for a good primer, too. Get it in gray. Easier to see coverage when going on over the black and again when covering with the black extreme.

When I swapped the axle housing on my old truck, I did it with Eastwood Chassis Black, the extreme version. I had the housing mediablasted, then used ther etching primer. The result was really nice. Be super careful with the acid etch. It will burn your skin if it touches it and will permanently discolor concrete.
