From my experience, POR is best when it has some roughness/rust to stick to. If it were me, I'd hit it will some etching primer and paint with top coat of your choice, semi gloss rustoleum ect. I wonder if rocker paint would look good, it is supposed to be chip resistant.

beertestr, I just sent an email asking if you are still making these hitches. I have a 1993 with tow pack that I'd like to put on one. Let me know via email the damage to get one shipped to Lawrenceburg, KY 40342

Looking for a hitch for my 92 Roadmaster Wagon. Any one know how I can get hold of one of these.
Thanks to KDS for a nice piece of kit! Here's a video I made of my installation - I probably should have checked with Michael first before installing it in a way it wasn't exactly designed for... but here we are
I have a thread going in the member project section too if you're curious about the Duramax conversion overall. Still have a ways to go.
You might consider reinforcing the receiver at the rearmost face as they'll eventually split the tube, typically at the bottom.
If you look at any of the purchased receiver tubes, they all have a "doubler" at the face of them for this reason.

Good call, thanks. That actually 'reinforces' the point that I should have just bought a premade receiver tube and cut it to length. It would have already had the holes and the doubler and would have saved me some work. If I was doing it again, I'd go that way.
You might be able to cut a slice of 3x3x1/4 wall box tube that you can weld on as a doubler or spend a bit of time with the welder and just weld a bunch of 1/2" long stringers around the perimeter at the end to do the same thing.
