Full strength rust reformer liquid in the 8 oz. container works great. But the aerosol version is mostly BLACK PAINT. The rust reformer liquid brushes on milky white and turns black to let you know it's working and if it needs another coat. You won't get that result by spraying black paint on the surface you want to treat. The aerosol can is a completely different product that should be labeled as such, i.e.: Black Paint with rust reformer added.
For serious and effective rust treatment you can have some control over use the brush-on liquid.
Rated 5 out of 5 by James62 Great Product For Rust Protection.
I don't know what the other reviewers problem was with this product. I have used it for years with great results, including the restoration of my 1962 Chevy C-10 Step Side pick up.
For maximum rust protection I sand down heavy rust, then coat the rust with a product such as Oxy-Gone which converts the rust from iron oxide to iron phosphate. Once the conversion has taken place , I then top coat with the Rust Reformer before painting. I also to this to truck beds before using a DIY bedliner such as Herculiner. It has been 5 years since I did this on my 1962 Chevy Truck and there is no signs of rust to be found.
I also like the flat "hot rod" black finish and have used it to paint truck tool boxes and the like when I wanted a nice flat finish that also gave me rust protection as well.
Rated 2 out of 5 by BSWMom I agree...not the same!
I agree completely with the FlHorsemen. This product is not the same as the liquid version. They both sport the same name 'Rust Reformer' yet are not even close to being the same product.
