came accross a new product today and was wondering if anyone has tried it. The product is named "Bullet". I believe they are out of Nevada. They advertise that it's tougher than por-15 and can be shot directly on a rusty surface. Hmm! Just trying to get some input on this product, before tackling my oxidation cancer. Thanks!! graemlins/waving.gif

The product is called " Rust Bullet" not just Bullet smile.gif
You are correct, the home office is in Reno, NV, and the main Distubution warehouse is located in Mt. Vernon, Texas ( 130 miles east of Dallas ) that being us.
We don't just advertise we beat POR-15, but have the tests by independant labs to prove it.
Im NOT here to give a sales pitch, but if anyone has questions, I'll be glad to answer them. I see a few have tried the product and so far it's gotten pretty good reviews here. Thanks for giving us a shot.

Hmmmm.... They are both basically MDI based diisocyanate paints but one claims to be far superior to the other?
I really don't want to sound like a jerk and I'm sure yours is an excellent product but I don't really believe in painting over rust. One of my few fundamental beliefs is that if you have a rust problem, the only true cure is to cut out the rusty part and replace it with new steel. Even surface rust turns into cancer eventually!

I agree with PD. The only way is to CUT IT OUT!!

And I totally agree with you. If I have the option of cutting out the rust and using a patch panel, or replace a whole panel itself, I do. I did exactly that on my 67 Camaro SS/RS, new floor pans, new tailpan, New truck pans, new Hood and Fenders. But before I put down the carpet, painted the frame, painted the truck with splatter paint, etc etc, the new metal was sprayed with Rust Bullet from head to toe.
And yes there are lots of MDI based diisocyanate produst on the market and more are showing up every year. It's amazing how POR-15 stayed the "name to use" and others dropped out. The base is the same. But the one that alters the formula enough to over come the others short comings and still out perform others over time will win in the end. POR-15 is not the only product in town anymore and they know it. They even *agreed* to a one on one test over a year ago. And yet they have put off the testing this whole time as of yet. the only responce so far are several law suits against us smile.gif I wish them luck.

I used Rust Bullet on a Nova and I must tell you that I was very happy with the results. It was recommened by a friend that had used POR 15 many times. He told me that he had used POR for the last time. From here on out, just Rust Bullet. I agree on metal replacement also. If you have a panel that is basically held together by rust, this is not liquid metal in a can. But if you have light rust, why not put on a coat of something that is proved to inhibit rust for a long time to come. To me it is a great product to use when an a concours restoration is not in order, but putting some more life into a good driver without spending big bucks. Lucky for me, rust was not a problem on my Camaro!! :D Kevin
