Default Frame rust

Does anyone else experience regular frame rust? I find myself having to use rusteoleum paint each spring on the black frame?

Comes with the territory... The frames would be prohibitively expensive if they were powder coated and the paint the manufacturers use is for the buyer (looks good when new) and not the owner (the buyer that bought 6 months ago).

Rustoleum is good, but, I've had better luck with POR-15 for longevity...

Thanks so much, we are headed to FL and perhaps I will apply it down there... Is it available in stores or only on line?

I get mine on-line, but, a good body repair shop may handle it or another brand that is similar (there are many). POR-15, and its familiars, are usually termed "rust converters" or other closely worded references. Rustoleum is designed primarily to "cover and stabilize rust", while the others are touted to actually "convert" the rust. I've found that they do a much better job, but, they are more pricey than the commonly found Rustoleum products.

I re-sprayed the entire bottom of the frame a couple of years ago with a rust inhibiting paint and now just use an oil spray at the end of each season before putting it away. A couple of cans and its done. The spray has a wax built in so it doesn't drip. Seems to work so far.

Default Frame rust

I used Automotive Rock guarding on the underside. It seems to last the longest! You can buy iot for cheap at most Auot parts stores - around $6.00 - $8.00 and then you can touch it up when ever you need to. You can spray it on any wood also.
