Default Hammerite

Got the Budbuilt underside stuff and my Marlin bumper. I usually use plain old black Rustoleum (and might on the bumper so that it looks like the ARB). But would like to try Hammerite on the cross member and skid plates. So where do I get the stuff? Seems like I remember seeing it at A&A Trading Post. True?

sherwin williams is a distributor in the us, but it is at a&a in quart form. I wouldn't spray it though, only rattle can or brush/roller. LOVE that stuff

I've been impressed with Rustoleum Professional so far. I'm painting my cage with it.

I get Hammerite from A&A by the quart. And some cheap foam brushes. Green Machine turned me on to it a couple years ago. It is not *quite* as rust resistant as POR, but good grief it is sooo much easier to apply, I actually do touch it up - as opposed to POR, which is a pain, and does not look nearly as good either.

I have too, but I have heard awesome things about the Hammerite stuff.
