  3. KBS Top Coater should come out smooth when sprayed. You can add some additional thinner. Also, get the air pressure up at the gun and be sure to apply even thin coats. Please report back to us after implementing those suggestions.
  4. Using KBS Klean and KBS Strip will neutralize the KBS Strip. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  5. I thinned the top coater white with about 10% kbs thinner and painted out my hplv gun. The spray pattern was a little thick like small fabric thread looking paint. See the picture for an up close view. I was wondering is this the intended outcome or is it suppose to be smooth?
  6. Earlier
  7. should this be neutralized after use before paint prep?
  8. Yes. Motor Coater is UV Stable meaning Motor Coater can be used as an exterior paint. For rust prevention on your tractor, it would be best to prep and then apply 2 coats of RustSeal followed by 1-2 coats of Motor Coater. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  9. Can I paint my entire tractor with motor coater? The tractor and the engine are one in the same. This is a before picture. The engine, transmission and rear unit have all been gone through and it is in the process of being put back together. I guess the real question is, does the engine coater have UV protection?
  10. Update: As instructed, I let the tank sealer cure for two weeks then attempted to pop any bubbles with a wire coat hanger - they were solid. I mounted the tank and used the bike all last summer without issue. There was gasoline in the tank all winter and when I started it up last weekend, there were no issues. The tank sealer inside looks fine. Great product and great customer service. Thanks KBS!
  11. Motor Coater is ideal for brake calipers. For Rotors, grab the Rotor Restoration Kit which includes everything you need to remove the coating that is on there and to coat the rotors with a high heat rust preventative coating. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  12. I purchased a Motor Coater Kit to paint my brake calipers. I just purchased new rotors that are Geomet coated: https://www.remmenbrakes.com/geomet-explained/ Is there any prep I need to do to the rotors other than Klean before painting?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. “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.
  16. 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.
  17. Did you ever do this? I am interested in it as well.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. I applied too thick a coat of Motor Coater. What is the easiest and best way to resolve this and make it look good.
  21. 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 !
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  25. 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?
  27. For unfinished aluminum, clean well with KBS Klean, dust a coat of KBS Fusion on and then apply KBS Top Coater.
  28. 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 ??
