Re: [T3] POR 15.. my final verdict.

I have to agree.  I've used POR-15 on several cars now, and the only problem
I've noticed is when I don't clean off the loose, scaly stuff.  I even had
part of my POR-15 coated floorpan soaking in water (from the yet to be fixed
leak) and it still looks fine.  Time will tell if this will last, but so
far, I'm satisfied with the results I've had with POR-15.
