How much you pay for POR-15 kit?

Hi guys, about to buy a POR-15 kit for my tank. I only found it on ebay, and it comes with a quart of marine clean, a quart of metal ready, a quart of por-strip, 8 oz of us starndard tank sealer, and general instructions. It costs about $50 with the shipping included.

Is that how much you guys normally pay for a kit? If you can get it cheaper anywhere, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Re: How much you pay for POR-15 kit?

I think I need the actual kit with all the metal ready stuff though since I still have some rust in the tank after using muriatic acid, so I can't just get the sealer (that would have been great though). Anywhere where I can get the kit cheaper?

I used some vinegar, soaked over night, then some derusrer stuff from an automotive store, then ordered POR-15 from the company...Vinegar 1.00 a gallon

Deruster 4.50

Por 15 11.25, plus shipping 9.00=20.25

Total spent 25.75

The smallest can (8oz, I think) was plenty, after 20 minutes of slowly turning tank, i poured out approximately 1-2 oz.

Oh , yeah....and don't get that stuff on your hands, or anything else , it is permanent. it took several days to wear off.....

I've been reading a lot about Caswell's products lately. I guess a few board track bike builders have been using the Caswell tank kit with great success, so I ordered it today.

It's supposedly better than Por-15, Kreem, and Red-Kote.

Re: How much you pay for POR-15 kit?

I didn't shop around much, but I got the kit for $34 plus shipping. It ended up around $44.
