  3. Touch Up

    I am planning to Rustseal and then undercoat the underside of my Impala using the three step process,. If I need to grind down to bare metal to weld on an exhaust hanger, for example, can I touch up the exposed area by applying Rustseal and then rubberized undercoating to the bare metal? Will this be effective in preventing rust?

  8. “Glass bead blasted the entire surface. Two thin coats of XTC Zinc Primer 24 hrs. apart. Then Two coats of XTC Stainless Steel paint 24 hrs. apart. I then used some Black for the handle, Red for the vents and Flame Blue for the trim & drawers. I'm tickled with the end product and look forward to many many years of maintenance free service. Used a Wagner Power Sprayer & it worked great.” -Steve S XTC Primer | XTC
  9. “This was a 4 X 8 foot plywood sign (double-sided) that I originally did about 8 years ago, for a friend's restaurant. It was very faded and weathered; but the basic plywood was still in good shape. So we sanded it well, primed and re-lettered it.(hand painted). Then put the KBS Diamond Clear on it. Looks great!! It sits out in a parking lot, with one side in the sun for most of the day ... I'm very satisfied with the product, so far.” -Dale F. DiamondFinish Clear
  10. “Before & After pics of my LT1/4L60E for my '68 C-10 project. All coatings are Motor Coater. Block is Velvet Black, the rest are Gloss Black, and Aluminum that has been Diamond Clear-coated. Diamond Clear on raw polished aluminum and steel parts as well. Motor Coater and Diamond Clear are my "go to" coatings for the things I want to have a nice finish on. Awesome stuff!” -Chad M. Motor Coater | DiamondFinish Clear

  12. “When undertaking a custom engine install on my 1972 Buick Riviera the KBS BlackTop OEM Satin Black did absolute wonders for refreshing the engine bay. My choice of color for the new crate engine is KBS MG Maroon Engine Paint. KBS clear was used for the final clear coat on the car and when spraying the KBS clear in several light coats I had excellent results. I will use KBS paint products again for future restoration projects” -David P. BlackTop | Motor Coater | DiamondFinish Clear

  14. Does Bed Renu Prevent Rust

    I have some rust on my truck and I was wondering what type of rust prevention does the Bed Renu have. I know you have Rust Seal which I've used and works great but I want to try only the Bed Renu as I like the textured look. Would Bed Renu offer any rust prevention for me?

  21. DiamondFinish Clear SATIN on glass

    Your welcome. If at any time in the future you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
  22. DiamondFinish Clear SATIN on glass

    Oh boy... that's going to be a lot of coats of aerosol to equal the 2 minimum recommended coats of the standard liquid! I do want a satin finish but perhaps I should've ordered the gloss and tried to sand down the surface sheen. Anyway, thank you again for your assistance... I will do the best I can with the aerosol.
  23. DiamondFinish Clear SATIN on glass

    You stated that you needed a satin finish, correct? If that is true, you need the aerosol because satin only comes in an aerosol can. Yes, you are correct. It takes 5 coats of the aerosol to equal one coat of the bulk version. As long as you apply thin covering coats according to the directions, you can apply as many coats as you desire. Please let us know if this helps and if you have any additional questions.
  24. DiamondFinish Clear SATIN on glass

    KBS, I see that the liquid version of DiamondFinish is 60% solids, and the aerosol is only 12%. Does this mean that the aerosol version is less durable? Or just that you receive less of it after the solvents evaporate? I already ordered the aerosol, but now I'm wondering if I purchased the wrong product...
  25. DiamondFinish Clear SATIN on glass

    Thanks, KBS. I'm using artist acrylics, typically used to paint canvas and other fine art. They don't really have instructions, but they're also not designed to adhere to glass. I was hoping a sandblasted surface might assist with adhesion. I will order the DiamondFinish Aerosol and give it a try.
