Long term, I don't think they do all that well. In my experience plain 'ol Rustoleum works just as well, maybe better actually.

I have used POR-15 with great success. I have used it on truck frames that are exposed to sand and salt all winter, and on steel battey boxes. It has been three years since I first used it and I haven't had to touch up anything yet.

Do rust converters really work? How well do they work on surface rust and flaking rust?
Nothing works if the metal is truly flaking away, until you get all the flaky junk off and down to sound metal (some clean pits OK) - THEN I know for sure POR-15 works GREAT.

I've been using it on the sheet metal of my 75 BMW 2002, and it seems to work really well. First, sand down and remove as much as possible, then hit it with the stuff. I think it gets into tight spots better that you can, especially if you're not doing a full body off restoration. I don't plan on using it on the undercarriage.
