Rear Crossmember Paint.

Recommended Posts

What is the best prime and paint that you have tried for the rear crossmember?

Mine is flaking off in chunks and I plan to give it a scraping with a radial wire brush and re-paint it.

There used to be a metal primer called Red Lead that was incredible, unfortunately it is no longer on the market.

I used a couple of coats of hammerite stone chip shield then some normal satin black. Matches the new mud flap brackets. Make sure you double masking tape the bodywork before you start with the wire brush to ensure you don't knick the paintwork!!
