Hi,

Anyone come across this Question - sounds good - expox satin black with rust inhibitor - thinking of using it for my rear cross member and step.

Sounds like it does give a good finish, and should be tough... so great from that point of view.

What worries me is that it does say that the surface should be 'new metal' or 'free from rust', unlike the old hammerite which doesn't need it to be completely free?
So I guess that means a lot more prep! Confused

But great for spraying new, or sandblasted parts.

don't know about you but paint is good but alloy or stainless is better.
use a good underseal underneath and get one of the chequer plate kits for the rear of the motor. that way when people get in and out of your car and kick the cross member now damage can occur.
as to paint and wanting a bullet proof finish ever tried burning paint on?
get a good heavy paint such as hammerite and paint your cross member.
while wet burn it in / off with a blow tourch.
might sound daft but then repaint and burn off again...on the third time paint with a good paint that will look nice and leave to dry.
you will find that the paint will not only be very tough to damage but will last a lot longer and resist rust just as much.
i have a couple of friends who do this to there cross members and it works a treat.
