(Q) Can Red Rust Encapsulator be applied with the Undercoating System?
(A) Technically, yes, but this application isn't recommended because Rust Encapsulator requires surface to be free of grease, oil, and loose rust. The best product to coat inside box sections is the 16017ZP Heavy-Duty Anti-Rust (Qt.). This waxy, oily product flows into pinch welds and through rust to seal surfaces from contact with moisture and air, but cannot be painted over, so it's only suitable for inside box sections that don't show. Use lacquer thinner for cleanup.


Every few years I reassessed the condition of the frame on my TR6. When I first began doing this I noticed a familiar Red coating on my floorboards in particular. I contacted the body shop where I had my off-chassis restoration performed back in 1987. I inquired as to what type of Primer products that they used on the car. They stated "Eastwood Rust Encapsulator". I have continued the practice of using Rust Encapsulator as I find it the best choice in preventing and slowing down rust formation.
The rust encapsulator performs as advertised. For my vehicle,'50 Studebaker, I used the product in hard to reach areas. On older projects, 3+ years, it still holds up ewll and shows no signs of failing. For me, it's the best available.
