I ran across this on eBay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2451233611. Before I start sending these guys money, I really need your opinions on whether this stuff is actually as good as they say it is. If you are familiar with this product,please advise..Thanks in advance!! :cool:

Quote from the ad- "It takes several months for any rust/corrosion control product to demonstrate its effectiveness at stopping rust. This allows some of these companies to remove their ineffective products from store shelves, change the product name, and place the same product containing the same ingredients, with a different name, back on those same store shelves." That goes double for stuff on Ebay.

Yes, reads tempting. Ospho does the same.

I have NOT used this product before, in fact I've never heard of it before...sounds like a great product, but I wouldn't rely solely on their own testimonials/scientific tests. It struck me as being "too good to be true", especially the part about not having to scrape away any loose rust before using the product and how you might have to put extra coats on later. I have been using por products extensively and would recommend them over this stuff simply because I have seen the results myself. Perhaps the rust bullet is some new miracle chemical...but I doubt it! Do some research here on the site in the body and paint section on rust treatments. There's many threads on the subject and you can get a pretty good feel for what others have tried and their own personal results/opinions. Good luck and keep us posted if you decide to try it! ;)

Lots of info here:
Reading through their website, it says that it is not affected by battery acid or brake fluid. The guys at POR15 told me that once, but I found out that it wasn't true.

I like Eastwood and have also used POR15 extensively.
Here's some reading:

My friend and I bought a can of POR15 when it first came out. He had a 67 Mustang that the previous owner had waxed the paint right off the hood and it was covered with rust. He wire brushed it to clean off the loose stuff and then brushed on the POR15. He drove the car like that for 4-5 years and no rust ever came back through the POR15. That's a real life situation, not a simulated test like all these companies like to show.

I just got some new stuff from Carboline that I am going to try on my '95 (the unibody weld seams underneath are starting to rust).
This stuff is a super-tough 2 component epoxy/amine coating that is made to paint right over rust. It is made specifically for water tower painting. We used some at work and it was pretty amazing. After it fully cures, you could hit it with a hammer an it wouldn't even mar.
