POR15 and topcoat for other surfaces?

My next project is going to be trayback D100. I'm looking for an easy to care for surface. People have used rhinoliner in the past for the bonnet, wings, bulkhead, doors, etc. Has anyone used POR15 with their topcoat for things other than the frame or footwells?

I did my entire rear bumper while doing my fuel tank brackets and frame. I also used the UV topcoat(Blackcote?). It has lasted a few colorado summers and doesn't appear to have faded. It is a bumper though so YMMV.

I was aware of the UV sensitivity of the POR15 and that's why I'd have to use the topcoat. My main concern is flexability and durability - is it going to crack on doors - can scuffs and scratches be a headache?

Por-15 ...

I used Por 15 on all my engine compartment brackets, fuel tank cradle and skid plate, diff housing ... It resists chemical very well like brake fluid but use the black one.

I have also used the clear one on my intercooler piping with great results.

For my bumpers I am using it with there Hardnose top coat. The durability of Por-15 is great, as long as the surface is prepped correctly. For my bumpers, once they are finished I will have them rusted, surface only, to allow the best adhesion of the Por-15. Also doing my wheels and sliders with the same process.

I will keep you posted once completed.

Pat

Pat - thanks keep me updated.

Follow-up Post:

just looking for a low maintenance solution. My series III lightweight gets camp spray paint which works well, but I was hoping for something else. Eastwood has a new ceramic paint, but it's for frames and probably will crack if I put it on a door. Bedliner is flexable, but is thick and heavy.

Imron is just a super-durable urethane paint - its very flexible and resists scratches very well.
