Mine was rusty, don't think it's aluminum. I painted with POR-15 and then the silver topcoat, but it still doesn't look very good. I think I'll have it media blasted and chromed, someday...

I was looking at it last night and I think it was chrome that I uncovered with the polish. Since it is kind of dinged up, I may need to have it re-chromed to make sure it doesn't just rust.

Thanks for the heads up. I see shipping listed as $10.70/tube! That is highway robbery! But they do mention a discount for combined shipping on multiple purchases. I wonder how much. Can you tell us what they charged to ship a case of the stuff?

Also, I do not see a color listed for the tubes in the ad, nor any mention of purchasers having a choice of colors. Did you get silver/grey? I hope it is not defaulting to white, or cream, or black, or some other color.

I sent the vendor an email and asked how many tubes fit in the USPS priority box. I'm guessing from subsequent posts here that the answer is at least 12.

It looks like 17 tubes, if you go to his ebay listing, key in your zip, 17 tubes $10.70, 18 tubes 21.40. Same for me here in Michigan.

The vendor has both 635 and 636! And I almost bought a goodly supply from your 'notice'... Then... I wondered what the Lot Date is on it...

Trempro 635 shelf life is listed as NINE months.
Trempro 636 shelf life is listed as TWELVE months.

I've emailed the vendor to see if shipping can be combined between the 635 & 636... And what the Lot Date is..

Good catch Wabbiteer, I have used tube's over a year old with no problems. I e-mailed trempro about 635 and this is what they said:

One year from manufacture date.

I also ask Tremco how do you read the dates on the tube's and this was there reply:

on the plunger or on the case, it will be a letter / number, i.e. A/10 would be Jan of 2010.

Finished the belly pan today except for around the tanks, that will be the very last thing that I do, probably will do some local camping before closing off to test for leaks. I used 5052 0.04" on all of the belly pan, will go with 0.032 on the next restoration.
