Hmmm...B  Does this presuppose that the frame is in the toilet the moment
after application???

More seriously, two thoughts:

1) I used POR 15 on my frame.B  Results are outstanding.B  Under the car, it
doesn't matter whether it flattens over time. Rust prevention is superb 5
years and counting.

2) I haven't seen mentioned yet whether this is a box frame or I frame.B  If
box, you may want to consider a stop-rust treatment.B  I simply bought a
gallon jug of cheap oil, poured it into various openings, and twisted and
turnedB the frame to get a full coating inside.B  More complicated options are
available from others here, but my frame wasn't that bad to begin with, so
worked fine for me.
