I used POR-15 - the gray version on some Rohn 45 about 4 years ago. It goes on well and has done what was advertised. Make sure the surface is clean and you will be satisfied with the end result. When applying, make sure you don't get it on exposed skin - it will be there for several days - I know from experieince : )

I hope you will keep us informed on how well you think it works after
you've had a chance to try it. It sounds too good to be true and my
Daddy told me about that!! I also have a situation that could use this
product if it works. It is the gearbox on my crankup. Thanks for being
the "test bed"!!
