  1. “I purchased the diamond clear to use on my wheels on a 77 El Camino. The wheels were chemically stripped and the outer wheel was sanded and polished to an almost mirror shine (as good as my patience would allow), the center of the wheels were base coat and clear coat with standard two stage paint system. I reduced the diamond clear the full 30% for spraying. The clear was wet sanded after 2 days with 2000 grit and then compounded with a wool disc at 1500 rpm. In the end the wheels turned out very good!” -Tim G DiamondFinish Clear

BlackTop is a high performance protective coating specifically formulated to withstand dulling and fading caused by prolonged sunlight exposure.

    Paint saver

    For KBS Paint Saver, you can simply hold the end of the straw up near your ear and depress the spray tip. If you hear air coming out, it is not done and you can continue using it to preserve your coatings. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

  5. “I sprayed 3 coats of KBS Gloss Black Motor Coater allowing each coat to fully cure and scuffing with a red scotch brite pad between coats to get a fairly smooth surface. Finally, I sprayed 3 coats of KBS Diamond Clear. I’m super happy with the results!” -Jamie P

    how to liquiify the tank sealer after setting up-hardening

    Once the KBS Tank Sealer is completely cured, no solvents will touch it. KBS Strip can be used to remove it but if you do the tank sealing process correctly, there will be absolutely no reason to remove it. Tank Sealer will seal up pinholes (tip of pin) and if you have holes larger than pinholes, plug the holes first from the outside with NuMetal Epoxy Putty of KBS Patch first and then do the KBS 3-Step Tank Sealing System on the inside of the tank.

    Heat limits of Rust Seal

    RustSeal is good up to 600F, so 400F would be no problem at all. Please be sure to check out the complete RustSeal Directions and let us know if we can assist you in any other way.

    Primer>Color>clear?

    Yes, scuff the surface and then clean well with KBS Klean. Then apply XTC Primer and XTC in thin coats. You can absolutely apply 1-2 coats of each (XTC Primer, XTC Jet Black and XTC Clear). Please be sure to read carefully the XTC Primer Directions and the XTC Directions. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    After Rust Blast, how much is too much rust?

    Thank you for the pictures. As you can see from the pictures, the Tank Sealer micro bubbled where it was too thick. We very clearly advise against letting the Tank Sealer puddle or get thick in areas in our directions. If the design of the tank makes complete draining difficult, rotate the tank very frequently into different positions during this time to help minimize excess accumulation in any single area. You can rotate the tank for up to 8 hours. Foaming & bubbling are signs of excessive Sealer accumulation and gas entrapment due to ineffective drainage. At this point, let the Tank Sealer cure for 2 weeks or so and then take a wire coat hanger, unfold it and poke those areas to be sure they have hardened up and are not soft. As long as the Tank Sealer has hardened up, you should be good. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    Custom Paint

    Yes, you can prep and coat your chassis with the Frame Coater Kit or the All-In-One Chassis Coater Kit. If the frame will see sunlight, it is best to use the All-In-One Chassis Coater Kit because it contains BlackTop which is a UV stable solid color top coat. You can coat over RustSeal with a custom body paint. There are three effective ways to topcoat RustSeal (with BlackTop, KBS Top Coater, KBS MAXX or other solid color top coat paints) effectively so that the coatings bond and fuse together. Please choose the one that works for your project. 1) Apply your top coat once the second or final coat of RustSeal is dry-to-the-touch and does not leave a fingerprint (usually 3-6 hours depending on temperature and humidity). 2) Let the second or final coat of RustSeal fully cure (at least 24 hours), scuff the RustSeal with 320 grit, then apply your top coat. 3) Let the second or final coat of RustSeal fully cure (at least 24 hours), dust the RustSeal with Fusion Self-Etching Primer, let the Fusion cure for 30 minutes, then apply your top coat. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    Sealing a previously sealed aluminum tank

    If you put fuel in the tank needs to be cleaned really well on the inside with KBS Klean (remove all fuel residue) and then rinsed and allowed to get bone dry before applying the KBS Fusion. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Sealing a previously sealed aluminum tank

    Tank Sealer does not stick well to itself. If you want to seal the tank again, you can pour some KBS Fusion in the tank (that has been sealed but has not had fuel put in it), roll the tank around so that all sides are evenly coated and then drain out the excess KBS Fusion. Let the KBS Fusion cure overnight before putting the next coat of Tank Sealer in the tank. Always remember to never let the Tank Sealer puddle of get thick. Please be sure to study well the complete Tank Sealer Directions. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    After Rust Blast, how much is too much rust?

    We are looking forward to seeing your results. Please do not let the Tank Sealer puddle. That is the key!

    After Rust Blast, how much is too much rust?

    From what you have described, your tank should be perfectly etched and ready for Tank Sealer. If you want to reduce the flash rust, dry the tank fast after the rinsing. But this is not necessary. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
