Corroseal is sold online only at HomeDepot I was also under the impression it wasn't as good as Ospho based on a previous thread I was reading - can't remember the reason though. Is it actually just as good?

Interesting, my Home Depot here in Miami has it on the shelves. I have no idea if it is as good as Ospho or not. It looks like it is a converter and latex primer all in one as opposed to Ospho which is just a converter.

I used Ospho and it worked well.

Amazon routinely quotes longer times than actual for shipping, makes me wonder if its to get more people to sign up for Prime anyway when I ordered Ospho back in November it arrived the next day. Good Luck.

HD offers "pick up at nearest store" option. You buy it on line & have it shipped to your choice of stores. Check & see if that saves time.

It usually does. Last summer, I ordered a lot of stuff that way (to usually stop annoying the UPS guy since I lived in a 3d floor walk up).

I live in Atlantic County, most of our high rises are down by the ocean...and several of them are bankrupt, and empty, eyesores.

He wasn't thrilled when the 5 gallon pail of Bus-Kote and two gallons of primer were delivered. And, frankly, I don't blame him.

Ended up ordering the Ospho from Amazon. Hopefully it gets here in the next few days, it says it shipped today, and it's coming from RI to Upstate NY (where I am right now), so not far distance wise at least.

Spent some time prepping the floor for the Ospho, and my wife is working on getting the last of the stickers off the outside. A torch gets them off fast, but leaves a massive amount of residue. Goof Off on the residue sort of just smears it around, we're getting as much off as we can, hopefully it doesn't effect the paint job too much.

Took the Stop Sign assembly off. Had to drill out the metal insert that attached it to the side of the bus.

Oh, and it was wicked hot out today.
