  5. The main thing to understand with Motor Coater Aerosol is that it takes 5 coats of Motor Coater Aerosol to equal 1 coat of Motor Coater (non-aeroosl). It is the exact same paint but the aerosol version is thinned down quite a bit to make it work in an aerosol can. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  6. Does the convenience of aerosol Motor Coater come with a penalty in durability or chemical resistance? I'll use a gun if that paint is superior, or an aerosol if equivalent. I just want the best result I can get.
  7. “Flame painted copper is done with a torch. NO paint. We use the DiamondFinish Clear to seal the copper and keep the colors permanent.” -Randy A from Scottsdale, AZ DiamondFinish Clear is a crazy tough Clear Coat that can be applied Direct To Metal (ferrous and non-ferrous) or over other coatings. DiamondFinish Clear is a water clear high gloss clear coat that remains permanently flexible and is able to perform in the toughest environments without yellowing, cracking or peeling.
  8. DiamondFinish Clear being used to restore a faded and chalky gelcoat is a very common application. We are confident you will be thrilled with the results.
  9. Did you ever do this? I am interested in it as well.
  10. You can try to wire wheel it down so the threads are usable again. KBS Strip also works but if you have a stripper that contains Methylene chloride, you could use that as well. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  11. Any idea or anyone ever attempt? Want to mix diamond clear and glow in dark powder apply to my lures then clear powder coat over the kbs and glow....seems the powder paint takes abuse better then diamond clear(not complaining it's great stuff) ...plus the mix of glow powder and diamond clear stays clear....if glow powder is added to the clear powder coat it will turn white because the powder is white....we are trying to stay translucent with the glow....so basically can diamond clear stand the 350-400 degrees?
  12. I applied too thick a coat of Motor Coater. What is the easiest and best way to resolve this and make it look good.
  13. 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 !
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  17. 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?
  19. For unfinished aluminum, clean well with KBS Klean, dust a coat of KBS Fusion on and then apply KBS Top Coater.
  20. 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 ??
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. So, you are looking for a clear coat for aluminum, correct?
  24. 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
  25. “My 1963 E100 pickup was from the air force so the tank had a drain plug & the holes were mostly on the top. Followed instructions, easy!” -Jeff B Grab the Auto Fuel Tank Sealer Kit Today!
  26. “Here Pics of my 461 pontiac stroker going in my 65 GTO. I prepped with wire brush & KBS Klean then XTC Primer then Motor Coater. The exhaust manifolds were sand blasted & primed with XTC Primer & coated with XTC. So far looks great, thanks for all the Help!” -Randy R.
  27. 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.
  28. 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?
  29. 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?
