The stuff actually works as described. Pretty unbelievable in todays "truth in advertising" world.  ;D  Enlarge the pic and you can see some untreated pieces with the amount of rust the arms had.

Any prep or just spray over rusty stuff?   I've used some rust convert primer before, cheap stuff and it was ok.

spray or wipe on,fine Scotchbrite to work it in or remove heavier rust,wipe off. Both sides arms took about 20 bux worth of the P20 and about 30 minutes total.I'm going to do entire chassis on new car with it and a clear coat.

Results are pretty much a dead ringer for silver powdercoat.

This stuff is a conversion coating that promotes adhesion of any top coat so long as a very thin coat of P20 is used. Excessive use is supposed to possibly hinder coatings of whatever type. Or so the maker says.  Seems most reports are favorable.
