  1. Most waxy frame coatings from the manufacturer can be removed with Mineral Spirits or Acetone. After you have done that, pressure wash the frame to be sure you have gotten rid of it all. After that, do the KBS 3-Step Rust Prevention System. Hopefully that helps. If you have any other questions, please let us know.
  2. In general, KBS Klean and RustBlast diluted really well with rinse water will not harm your grass. The key is to dilute the KBS Klean and RustBlast with as much water as possible. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  3. In general, the next coat of DiamondFinish Clear should adhere extremely well to the previous coat even if it is beyond the 8 hours that we recommend. That said, to be absolutely sure of great adhesion, you can scuff the previous coat lightly with a green scote brite pad or similar, blow off the dust with clean air and then apply your next thin coat of DiamondFinish Clear. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  4. Yes, the KBS Tank Sealer System is impervious to all diesel fuels and modern day additives. At this time, we do not have any European Resellers. Please let us know if we answered all of your questions and if you have any additional questions.
  5. In theory, it should, but we have never tested this specifically. Please let us know how it works for you.
  6. If the paint on the transmission case is glossy (shiny), scuff with 300 grit. If the paint on the transmission case is matte or flat, you can still scuff it but it is not as critical. After that, assuming the transmission case has been cleaned very well with a water based cleaner, you can apply the Motor Coater. Please be sure to check out the Motor Coater Directions before you start your project. If we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
  7. Yes, when doing a clear coat like DiamondFinish Clear, you do not want to use RustBlast as RustBlast leaves behind a white zinc phosphate powder that can cloud up a clear coat. Clean the surface really well with KBS Klean and then rinse and dry immediately to prevent flash rust. You want to dry a cast surface really well because cast surfaces tend to hold on to moisture and moisture left on the surface can lead to a less than desirable final finish. Once the surface is bone dry, apply DiamondFinish Clear in thin coats. You can apply as many coats as you need but they have to be thin coats. Please be sure to check out the complete DiamondFinish Clear Directions: https://www.kbs-coatings.com/DiamondFinish-Clear-Directions.html Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  8. Yes, you can absolutely coat over cured Motor Coater (KBS Engine Paint). Give the cured Motor Coater surface a slight scuff and then clean the cured Motor Coater surface with KBS Klean. Once the surface has been rinsed and is bone dry, the surface is ready for more Motor Coater. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any other questions.
  9. Please post or send us pictures. We love to see customer photos as they inspire us!
  10. Re-coating time for DiamondFinish Clear is very dependent on temperature and humidity. With that in mind, re-coating can be done once the first or consecutive coat is dry-to-touch and does not leave a fingerprint which is usually within 2-4 hours. When spraying, 10%-15% is normally adequate. Use KBS #1 Thinner (VOC Exempt) or Xylene ONLY. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  11. BlackTop Gloss is 90-95% gloss measured at 60 degrees so it sounds like you would just want to use BlackTop Gloss. If you wanted to bring the gloss down some, the best way to do it is to start with a 1:1 mix and then adjust as needed. As a very general rule, it is easier to get glossy and more difficult to get satin which is why we recommend starting at a 1:1 mix. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  12. Yes, you can absolutely mix the BlackTop Gloss and the BlackTop OEM Satin to get a custom sheen. The best way to do it is to start with a 1:1 mix and then adjust as needed. Always paint out test pieces and wait 24 hours to see the final sheen knowing that the sheen gets more satin as it cures. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  13. Yes, you can apply BlackTop (Non-Aerosol) in thin coats (3-8 hours between coats; re-coating can be done once the first or consecutive coat is dry-to-touch and does not leave a fingerprint). After 24 hours, you can wet sand and then apply additional coats of BlackTop as needed to get the desired finish and gloss. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    Primer

    No, you can brush RustSeal (brush marks flow out beautifully) and then spray the BlackTop. 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 you have any additional questions.
