I read about everything in the archives on POR-15 and found some threads that do not recommend semi-gloss for painting the frame because it does not spread evenly!

Why semi-gloss is whorst than gloss?

Anyone used semi-gloss for the frame?

I have 1 pint and some 4 oz container of black semi-gloss, just wondering if I need to return them

I used it and everyone is right. Some places were shinier than others. I wound up going over it with Rustoleum gloss black.

Sorry, I clicked too quick. I think you're supposed to cover POR 15 with some sort of paint anyway because of UV raYS breaking down the paint.

I had the exact same issue. The frame looked great until it dried. Then it had flat and shiny areas all over. I also then sprayed some gloss black over it in the areas you can see when finished (such as the engine bay).

Use the POR 15 Gloss Black. You can put it on with a brush and it will dry without any brush marks and give a hard glossy finish.

I used the Stirling Silver topcoat that others have complained about being splotchy. Mine came out nice and even. I used a loop of coat hanger wire in my drill to mix and mix and mix and mix and mix it. Then I mixed it some more before applying it. This stuff takes a LOT of mixing.

I haven't had mine on the road yet, so I can't comment on long term durability but I used the POR "Hardnose" 2 part paint with a foam brush and it came out really nice. Mike in Maine
