I am done with all my fit up pulled my tuck all apart now chassis paint? Just regular base coat clear? Por 15? rustoleum ? Powder coating is too expensive for my set budget on this. So what do you all suggest? This is not original. It has a camaro clip four link with 9"

Chassis saver works like por 15 and does not have all the steps involved but it is affected by the uv rays and needs to have a top coat like tremclad or similar

I rattle-can everything. It's inexpensive, easy to touch up, and who's gonna ever see it? Rustoleum is surprisingly tough when it's fully cured - feels almost like powder coat.

We used Endura 2 part epoxy paint on the chassis. Really tough...

POR and similar urethane types don't have a lot of elasticity. A flexible type finish is best for frames that tend to flex. If the proper steps aren't taken with POR good adhesion may be problematic down the road.

I second the vote on Rustoleum. Unless you are going for a full restoration with car show quality pain job you can't beat it for price and durability. As miraclepieco said, easy touch up also.
