Industrial paint

My father wants to paint the chasis of his dump truck but is not sure what type of paint he should use. Maybe some epoxy paint, im not sure.

Can anyone give me advice where i can find some heavy duty rust paint to paint the chasis of the truck? Even a name brand of paint would be helpful. He would want some black paint.

Industrial paint

I would check out Insl-x - they are owned by Ben Moore but sell some really good commercial/industrial coatings. I think for your application you could probably use their rust scat line. This is a very durable oil based enamel. Can be applied directly to metal but I would probably still prime the bare chasis. There are certainly some really good epoxies you could use as well, but they can be tricky to work with. There is one called Insl-tron which you might want to look up.

good luck
