Rosie's frame was painted with two very solid coats of Por 15, the ultra special rust preventative paint. I had intended to do three coats, but realized during the second coat that it was totally unnessary. The way the product covers makes one feel confident it is working to protect the metal like nothing else would.
The areas that are most exposed did get a third coat just to finish off the can. The Por 15 does not hold up well once exposed to air. The tongue will next be painted it's final color using an industrial oil based paint.
That will happen as soon as the weather allows me too and my rally hosting stops getting in the way. The plywood will be going on tomorrow and things will progress rapidly now.
