Undercoat paint

I was amazed by the level of rust on the axels, differential and drive shaft. So I took some undercoat and high temp paint and painter almost everything under the car. Here's a pic. Has anyone else noticed how fast rusts builds up on these machines?

I used some sand paper and a sharp knife in some places. I will give it a 2nd coat in the next couple of days. Just don't use undercoat on rusted surface, use high temp paint.

I used a spray. It's easier to get the paint in hard to reach surfaces.

had mine powder coated when I rebuilt the rear. I was also amazed how bad it looked originally.
