    Petcock Threads

    I just finished, sealing my gas tank, with the 'Cycle Tank Sealer', on my 2007 Honda Shadow Spirit VT750DC Seems to be a great product by the way. 2 Thumbs ! There seems, to be a bit, that has gotten on the male threaded nipple for the petcock connection. I don't want to buy an entire, quart, for this one location, is there an alternative, to cleaning off these threads ? Maybe a wire brush disc? Gently use a Tap & Die kit, on the nipple? Does anyone, know what size or type of threads, these might be ? Suggestions :) Thanks !

    New Factory Five Kit Car

    For the interior cavities, Cavity Coater is the 100% perfect solution. Grab a few aerosol cans and the Cavity Wand and you should be able to coat all of the interior cavity surfaces. Cavity Coater is very easy to apply and seals up the interior cavity surfaces so they will not rust. Please be sure to carefully review the Cavity Coater Directions before you start your project. For the outside parts of the chassis, clean with KBS Klean, etch well with RustBlast and then seal up with RustSeal which is a rust preventative coating that goes on super smooth and is very durable. RustSeal can be applied by brush or spray. If brushed, the brush marks flow out nicely leaving you a finish that looks like powder coating. Please be sure to carefully review the RustSeal Directions before you start your project.

    New Factory Five Kit Car

    I bought a factory five kit car that was produced in 2011 but never built. Has some flaking of paint (very minor) around some of the welded joints. I have the chassis stripped of all driving components. The next step is to rivet sheet metal over all of the tubular frame. Not sure of the make up of the metal (some appear to be aluminum and others just plain ole sheet metal). I would like to cover the frame and sheet metal with some kind of protective coating. Both the top and bottom (interior side and road side). 1. What products would you recommend? 2. What prepping should be done of the frame and sheet metal? 3. Is paint applied by brush or spray? Thank you, David

    not curing

    16 hours for the first coat to setup and not show a finger print, but was still able to dent it with finger nail 24 hours for the second coat to setup in the same way third coat of blacktop was fine, it appears to have turned out well. it makes things difficult because the coats need to be laid down before the previous cures all the way... I'm impressed with the coating in general but the dependence of humidity is difficult to manage.

    not curing

    This is very common when working indoors in the winter with a heater running (killing all humidity). The best way to get RustSeal to cure quicker is to get the humidity on the room up. Most customers use a humidifier to accomplish this. If that is not an option, many customers wet their floor (if possible), wet rags and spread them throughout the room or even wet cardboard and put it throughout the room. Once you get the humidity up you will notice that the RustSeal will cure much quicker. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    not curing

    I prepared my metal by sandblasting it, it was very clean and had a good dull sheen. I stirred the can for a couple of mins and made sure it was very well mixed. painted a light coat and it's now been 8 hours and it's still tacking and I can leave a print. I do live in a cold climate and indoor RH is 30% so it is very dry. am I screwed and now my parts are junk? will it ever cure?

    TeeTop Finish

    For unfinished aluminum, clean well with KBS Klean, dust a coat of KBS Fusion on and then apply KBS Top Coater.

    TeeTop Finish

    The aluminum is unfinished, I will use the same finish on the seat post which are slightly oxidized. Do I need to do any special prep? Should I use the primer that come with the rust seal kit, or ??

    TeeTop Finish

    Thanks for the pictures! That really helps us see what you see. KBS Top Coater would be absolutely ideal. Clean all surfaces really well with KBS Klean. Then apply KBS Top Coater in thin, covering coats. For marine applications like this, apply at least 3 coats. KBS Top Coater also does comes in all of the colors you suggested. Please let us know if that helps you out and if you have any additional questions.

    TeeTop Finish

    No, I need a good tough protective finish that is going to hold up to a marine environment. The finish should be a white, off white, maybe a grey. see the boat below. its off white.

    So, you are looking for a clear coat for aluminum, correct?

    TeeTop Finish

    I picked up a Dolphin Tee Top a few months ago. Its the original model. The factory finish is brushed AL. It in very good condition, with no corrosion, but that bushed finish with water spots looks like crap. I want to refinish it. I'm going to mount it on my Outrage. It's not one piece, bolts together. What do you recommend? I have used you kits to finish or refinish a couple of fuel tanks, but they are not visible or exposed to UV light. Karl

    Coating Diamond Plate Steel

    Yes, spraying RustSeal with an HVLP Gun for irregular surfaces like diamondplate would be ideal. It will lay out best that way. Spray pressure of 35-45 psi (250-330kpa) for siphon/pot guns and 25-35psi (170-250kpa) for gravity/top container guns. As a general rule of thumb, we recommend a 1.4-1.5 tip size. Thinning is not generally required but if needed 5%-10% is normally adequate. Use KBS #1 Thinner only which is a slow evaporating solvent. Do not reduce RustSeal with lacquer thinner. Also remember to clean your spray gun immediately after using RustSeal. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    Coating Diamond Plate Steel

    It was not fusion primer, it was another self etching primer. We have used it in the past on flat surfaces without an issue but the diamond plate has been a challenge. We are applying rust seal in thin coats but perhaps maybe not thin enough. Would I be better off spraying it on with a hvlp gun?

    Coating Diamond Plate Steel

    Thanks for the reply. RustSeal is designed to be apply very thin. If you apply RustSeal thin, it might fall off of the edges on the first coat but the second and subsequent coats will cover well. Are you using Fusion Self-Etch Primer or another primer?
  21. akcevans

    Coating Diamond Plate Steel

    It was new steel so we started off by cleaning it twice with KBS Klean. I know from previous experience that it needs to be perfectly clean to work properly. After cleaning and drying we primed with a self etching primer and waited at least 30 minutes per the instructions on the can. Then we proceeded to apply the rust seal with a brush.

    How did you prep the tread plate before applying RustSeal? Please let us know so we can assist you further.
  23. akcevans

    Coating Diamond Plate Steel

    When trying to coat steel tread plate with Rust Seal we are running into a problem where the self leveling properties of the coating prevent the edges of the diamonds from being coated. Is there a trick to this?

    Primer>Color>clear?

    So, my aerosol technique might not be the best. Ended up with a lot of orange peel (probably laid it on too thick). Oven cured it, as that seems to smooth it out just a bit. Had some Meguire's "fine cut" #2 cleaner and tried it on the proverbial "inconspicuous" area. Smoothed it right out. Finished it with a coat of Meguire's NXT Tech Wax and it is glossy, smooth and rock hard. Now looks like the powdercoat it is replacing. Pretty amazing stuff.
  27. KBS Top Coater is a superior coating formulated to be brushed, rolled or sprayed offering maximum coverage and professional looking results. KBS Top Coater is an ideal top coat paint for RustSeal when the area will be consistently exposed to sunlight. KBS Top Coater is a very high solids paint that does not run or sag, and gives at least twice the coverage of conventional paints.
