You have avery spacious workshop. Watch out because these bugs tend to multiply and you'll soon have very little work space. Just ask gimpy.

Not a problem and everyone is very helpful just like MWSC as well. So if you need anything just ask, dont be shy.

Its easier to use the whole chassis just dont forget to transfer the vin plate off the other chassis if you do.

its pretty pricey, and dont ever expect to remove it easily. Dunno if thats good or bad :)
Also if you care or not por 15 will not stay shiny.

I have also used the master series stuff, looks the same to me but silver.

Ifin ya wipe the dirt off the chassis of the limo the por 15 is plenty shiny. UV light causes it to get dull but doesn't affect the the protection. Not much of an issue on the underneath side. Unless you do a lot of car shows with mirrors to show off the por 15 ;)

i used por and it chipped off after awhile and started flaking. I started using the valspar tractor paint from tractor supply. Its ALOT cheaper also and they got 15 different colors.

yeah, you really need to follow the whole por 15 system. Use the marine clean, then the metal prep and finally por 15.
