Default Frame Painting/Coating

I have an EZ GO txt frame that I am going to use and swap over the engine and parts from my Sport 2+2 that rusted and broke in half(the PO ran in into the gulf of mexico). I leave the cart on an island in south Louisiana. I have a few places that have surface rust on my new frame, and would like to also paint the rest with something that will protect it from the salt water, any recommendations on what to use to coat the frame or should I just leave it with the stock coating.

Also any recommendations on switching over my engine and part to the TXT frame appreciated.

Thanks

Never used it, but would POR15 be a candidate? Sand blast then apply?

Por 15 seems to be most recommended. I got what rust off I could with a flap disk , then covered the whole frame with it. Itís only been on about a year, so I donít have any personal knowledge of how well it lasts, but it seems to be very popular in the car restoration world too. Iím not sure that you even need to go to the extent of sandblasting. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will chime in.

if you want to do it yourself by hand....then Por15 would be your best bet, just read and follow the instructions to the letter for best results.

BUT considering you are on the gulf and its exposed to the sea air, and the humidity there, your absolute best bet would be to totally disassemble the frame, sandblast it and have it powdercoated.
