Protective coating for frame- POR 15 or ???

I would like your opinion on repainting the fame on my son's 1995 GMC Siera GT Sport 4x4. I bought the truck new and gave it to him last year with 87,000 original miles on it. The frame has rust scale that needs to be scraped/sanded off and I need to know your thoughts on which coating would be best for this application. It will be driven and we will have to do it in several steps and probably brush it on since we don't have access to a lift for blasting/spraying. We just want to get the underside protected from further issues and clean up it's appearance. I know there are other coatings besides POR 15, but I haven't used any of them including POR 15; so I need your opinions. Thanks,

J.R.

SEM is another option, available at your jobber. Prep is important and the problem with frames while still under the body is 100% proper prep. Needle scalers work very well on scale, hence the name. From what I know about POR, which I won't use, is if the prep is not perfect, it will fail. Hard to do on an assembled vehicle as yours.

As soon as weather breaks a bit more we will be able to take a closer look at what we are dealing with. My son keeps wanting to spray truck liner material on everything, but i'm afraid that it will attract dirt deposits and look dirty most of the time since it has a sandpaper type feel to it. I might be wrong about that observation, but I think a smoother surface would work best.
