Was underneath my 2017 Transit and saw that the powder count on the factory receiver was bubbling with visible rust spots. I scraped off the loose bits and hit it POR-15. The powder coat quality is similar to that on my little Harbor Freight trailer.

A friend’s Acura MDX receiver is completely rusting away.

Why so bad?
