How smooth is the surface now that it has dried?

<p>How smooth is the surface now that it has dried?</p>

It doesn't smooth it out, but it does seem to tighten up the real rusty areas. It's all being undercoated with the stuff pictured, so smooth isn't a big deal to me.

If you were looking for a mirror finish paint job, by the time you did all the prep to get that I'm sure this rust converter wouldn't be needed.

The bottom is 90% done. I've used 8 cans of that undercoat so far.

Ken, The trailer is really looking good. You can sand the metal after you treat it with rust revitalizer.  It will paint nicer if you get it on the surfaces you are going to paint.

Lookie here.

I've got another gallon of this stuff (different brand) and I got it for FREE !!

I ordered a gallon of this stuff first, only to find out after I ordered it, that it would take TEN days to get. I told Home Depot to cancel my online order, that I wasn't waiting 10 days for it. Then I ordered it from Amazon dot come and had it in two days.
Home Depot sends me an email to refuse delivery when theirs comes, since they said its too late to cancel. A week or so later a gallon shows up, I tell the ups guy to return it and he does. Credit card was never charged. A week after that, last Friday another one shows up from HD ? I called and they said it was a screw up on their part. And I could either return it via UPS, or take it to any HD. OR just keep it and do nothing no charge. Gee, tough decision lol.

I/2 price special if anyone needs some. Lol
