In an effort to preserve my newly acquired vehicle from the brown/red plaque, I've come to the conclusion that POR-15 is the go to stuff for under body protection.

If I'm still running searches on here, but if anyone is under way on an undercoating of their own, I'd like to see the process. I have read the instructions, and what people say to do. That's fine, but I like pictures, and failing that, more written experiences.

Something that I want to be sure of is how much will I supposedly need?

Will one quart suffice? Half gallon?

I have some panels/fenders that need rust repaired. I read that I should put the POR on before I use bondo or what-have-you to repair the rust spots.

Preparation (not H) is everything, so I would like to do this, prepared with the knowledge of what is right and wrong.

Any tips, tricks, advice, experience, etc is appreciated. Thank you

It is just for the undercoat, and I'd like to think that it wouldn't experience too much UV from that location. Not to say it's impossible, but it'd be limited. I can also easily go over it with a coat of paint. Doesn't bother me, I just want to prevent further destruction.
