I want to clean up under my 67 and spray something to make it nice and clean. What do you all recommend?
Also how do you clean it up?
Thanks,
Rob

por 15 for a coating...there are some chemicals out there you can use to prep the surfaces that remove gunk you'll have to do a search to find out what yours needs...I have no idea what condition the metal is in without a picture

I used POR 15 on my truck and 3M Professional Grade Rubberized Undercoating on my Nova. The POR 15 can be sprayed on or brushed. The 3M I used is a rattle can spray. Use a respirator with using either one.

POR 15 does not stick well to bare metal without proper prep or anywhere you might have some oil residue (look on-line for prep instructions). It does work well with surface rust and area shouldn't have loose dirt or road grime. The 3M worked well over pre-painted surface if you scuff it up with some sandpaper. The 3M doesn't appear to be as "hard" of a finish and will scratch easier than the POR.

Several site members like Rustoleum. I haven't used it but they swear by it.

You might get a can of the 3M or Rustoleum and see what you like. The POR is pricey, about $45 for a pint.

Here is picture of the Nova after spraying.

Get a Shultz gun and 4 cans of there product and spray away. I like this undercoat because it dries fast and when it is dries it dries to the touch and you can paint over it! Fyi wear a respirator this stuff is wicked when you spray it but smell goes away as it dries completely.

Do NOT get POR 15 on your skin! I like rust-oleum for under the car as it's easy to apply and touch up
