  1. Earlier
  2. Most waxy frame coatings from the manufacturer can be removed with Mineral Spirits or Acetone. After you have done that, pressure wash the frame to be sure you have gotten rid of it all. After that, do the KBS 3-Step Rust Prevention System. Hopefully that helps. If you have any other questions, please let us know.
  3. Hey, I actually have the same exact question. I am surprised of the response you got, it really didn't answer the issue. Did you ever get a better answer? How did you get the wax coating off? I just got the kit and I want to be sure before I crawl under my truck and start.
  4. In general, KBS Klean and RustBlast diluted really well with rinse water will not harm your grass. The key is to dilute the KBS Klean and RustBlast with as much water as possible. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  5. Will the diluted run off of Klean or Rust Blast kill grass?
  6. In general, the next coat of DiamondFinish Clear should adhere extremely well to the previous coat even if it is beyond the 8 hours that we recommend. That said, to be absolutely sure of great adhesion, you can scuff the previous coat lightly with a green scote brite pad or similar, blow off the dust with clean air and then apply your next thin coat of DiamondFinish Clear. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  7. I know it is best if I get consecutive coats of DiamondFinish Clear on within 8 hours but what happens if that is just not possible? How do I insure that the next coat will adhere to the previous coat?
  8. Yes, the KBS Tank Sealer System is impervious to all diesel fuels and modern day additives. At this time, we do not have any European Resellers. Please let us know if we answered all of your questions and if you have any additional questions.
  9. Hello, just wanna ask if you tank sealer is applicable for diesel tank in my European version of Jeep Commander with Mercedes-Benz 3.0 liter diesel engine. I am just worried about additives and diesel coming with contact with your coating. Also just wanna ask if you have dealer somewhere in Europe. Thanks for your reply.
  10. In theory, it should, but we have never tested this specifically. Please let us know how it works for you.
  11. I am guessing that it will, but does Rust Blast remove Parkerizing (a phosphate conversion coating)?
  12. If the paint on the transmission case is glossy (shiny), scuff with 300 grit. If the paint on the transmission case is matte or flat, you can still scuff it but it is not as critical. After that, assuming the transmission case has been cleaned very well with a water based cleaner, you can apply the Motor Coater. Please be sure to check out the Motor Coater Directions before you start your project. If we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
  13. I have a transmission case that was already painted black. I degreased and pressure washed it. Can I just paint it with just the coater or do I need to do the whole process?
  14. Yes, when doing a clear coat like DiamondFinish Clear, you do not want to use RustBlast as RustBlast leaves behind a white zinc phosphate powder that can cloud up a clear coat. Clean the surface really well with KBS Klean and then rinse and dry immediately to prevent flash rust. You want to dry a cast surface really well because cast surfaces tend to hold on to moisture and moisture left on the surface can lead to a less than desirable final finish. Once the surface is bone dry, apply DiamondFinish Clear in thin coats. You can apply as many coats as you need but they have to be thin coats. Please be sure to check out the complete DiamondFinish Clear Directions: https://www.kbs-coatings.com/DiamondFinish-Clear-Directions.html Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  15. Yes, you can absolutely coat over cured Motor Coater (KBS Engine Paint). Give the cured Motor Coater surface a slight scuff and then clean the cured Motor Coater surface with KBS Klean. Once the surface has been rinsed and is bone dry, the surface is ready for more Motor Coater. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  16. I have a very large 100 year old bell with mounts. It's a very rough cast iron surface. I used a wire wheel off my angle grinder to strip off old paint and rust. I'd like to use Diamond Finish Clear to protect the metal with it's current patina while it sits outside for the rest of it's life. Can I use KBS Klean, the the Diamond Finish without having to also use the Rust Blast? If Rush Blast is required, please advise why? Thanks for your time and consideration.
  17. Can you paint KBS engine paint over older KBS engine paint after "scuffing" the old paint?
  18. Please post or send us pictures. We love to see customer photos as they inspire us!
  19. So to repeat back, spray first coat, wait to dry to the touch before the second coat....usually 2-4 hours temp and humidity dependent. My shop conditions are 70 degrees with 25% humidity, so we should see dry to touch within the time specified. Thanks for your prompt reply and support. I have never had a KBS Coating product disappoint me if applied correctly, I'm excited about coating the polished aluminum trim for our 1978 Ford Truck. This is a full restoration project with all the anodized aluminum trim removed, stripped of anodizing, polished to bright chrome look, cleaned and ready to coat with Diamond Clear. Thanks Again
  20. Re-coating time for DiamondFinish Clear is very dependent on temperature and humidity. With that in mind, re-coating can be done once the first or consecutive coat is dry-to-touch and does not leave a fingerprint which is usually within 2-4 hours. When spraying, 10%-15% is normally adequate. Use KBS #1 Thinner (VOC Exempt) or Xylene ONLY. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  21. the TDS states to clean with 4% KBS Kleen and 2 thin coats, yet doesn't state the flash or dry times between the initial coats. What is the dry time between first and second initial coats? Thanks PS I'm using an HVLP gravity feed spray gun for application.
  22. BlackTop Gloss is 90-95% gloss measured at 60 degrees so it sounds like you would just want to use BlackTop Gloss. If you wanted to bring the gloss down some, the best way to do it is to start with a 1:1 mix and then adjust as needed. As a very general rule, it is easier to get glossy and more difficult to get satin which is why we recommend starting at a 1:1 mix. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  23. Thank you for the advice. Do you have a formula for the ratio to get a 80-90% gloss. Would I do a 9:1 ratio of gloss to satin?
  24. Yes, you can absolutely mix the BlackTop Gloss and the BlackTop OEM Satin to get a custom sheen. The best way to do it is to start with a 1:1 mix and then adjust as needed. Always paint out test pieces and wait 24 hours to see the final sheen knowing that the sheen gets more satin as it cures. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  25. Yes, you can apply BlackTop (Non-Aerosol) in thin coats (3-8 hours between coats; re-coating can be done once the first or consecutive coat is dry-to-touch and does not leave a fingerprint). After 24 hours, you can wet sand and then apply additional coats of BlackTop as needed to get the desired finish and gloss. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  26. I'm trying to paint a vintage motorcycle frame however the gloss paint that kbs offers is too glossy and the satin is too dull. Is there a way to mix paints to roughly get 50% -75% gloss? Has anyone done this in the past? Thanks in adance Arnold
