Painted my chassis with screwfix red oxide undercoat 2 coats. Then 2/3 coats of Homebase exterior black gloss. 13/14 years on and it's still good.

That's pretty much what I did. should have been powder coated but MK forgot to do it and i was there with a van to pick it up. I'm glad now because red oxide and black gloss has stood up well and can easily be re-coated when it gets chipped.

Thanks for those updates - that's a decision made for me.

Now what prep did you do? wire brush on the drill / angry grinder? degrease (with what) and then paint?

Or something different?

Degrease is a concern for me as when I got the steel 20 years ago I sprayed wd40 on it to ensure it didn't rust immediately.

(it didn't!)

One product that keeps appearing in Land Rover world is Buzzweld. They've done some comparisons against other major brands (including those used underwater for oil rigs etc.) - they have numerous products, and the chap who runs it is very helpful and knowledgeable. I've used POR15 products in the past and been happy, but only limited to one product from Buzzweld (that I'm also very happy with). Worth asking the question to him, if nothing else....
