ospho rust primer

Has anyone here used this product? I am trying to clean up my rear cross member and a few other areas this product seems to be easy to use and effective. it is a phosphoric acid based primer/rust arrestor.

Yup. i am using a product like that now. I used a wire brush, power washed the underside, scrubbed with hot soap and water, then simple green, applied phosphoric acid based primer, then 3 coats of rust inhibitor frame paint, then waxoyl.

I also removed the cross-member under the transmission and the fuel tank plate. I caught it time, i.e. only surface rust, no pitting. Ground areas down to white metal and did the same mentioned above. It's a long process and a dirty job...but it will added years to the backbone of the truck...

Cheers...

Yep used it a few times and it works great. Follow instructions as Mike said in previous post..remove any loose rust with a wire brush. You can either brush it on or put in a spray bottle and spray it on depending on how large an area you want to treat. I used on the undercarriage and on rear and front bumber areas...dries black then paint over. Try to keep it away from painted areas..the stuff really works great

The local Coast Guard buys a pile of the stuff from my GF's marine store.

I find that it works very well........but so does rust......
