Paint Wand for Inaccesible Areas

There are some areas of my Panel I can't get to but would like to shoot some POR15 in there - I know there is some surface rust present. Is there a wand attachment for a spray gun or maybe something used with a pressure pot? Probably want something to shoot 360 deg.

Re: Paint Wand for Inaccesible Areas

Well, maybe I answered my own question - anyone use one of these? Neither have very good reviews - perhaps the viscosity of the undercoating is why they have such poor results?

Re: Paint Wand for Inaccesible Areas

Ive used a couple cans of the eastwood internal frame coating. It works well, the metal tip at the end of the wand does a decent job of spreading out the spray. Make sure you clean it after you use it or it will be one and done.

Ive taped the hose to a coat hanger to make it easier to use in hard to reach areas.

Yes, I ordered some of the Eastwood - should work well for my app if it does what it says it'll do.

You can spray coatings and rust removers in the back side of panels with an engine cleaning gun from Harbor Freight . They cost $9 and will blow paint and rust remover 3 feet . I've used them for years. If you decide to go with POR 15 or any other moisture cured uses silver not the black or clear. Silver formulation is your true airtight seal use multiple coats about 3 hours apart.

glad to see you used the paint and not wax. my son's 68 elco had wax undercoating. any time we welded on it, the wax would catch on fire. out of fear of a run away fire, i chained my dodge 4x4 locked in 4 low to it when welding. the elco was on stands with all wheels removed, i figured it would be easier to fix the barn wall, than to watch the barn burn to the ground. never did need to use my fire exit strategy, but we did have a few times where the hose came in handy.

never use cavity wax

Re: Paint Wand for Inaccesible Areas

The cavity wax would probably work better.The por15 requires a lot of prep.How will you get in there and prep it?
