  1. Yes, you can use RustBlast and Rust Converter together. Here are the steps: Clean the surface really well with KBS Klean. Etch the surface well with RustBlast. Then apply the Rust Converter which will leave a nice primed surface. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  2. You have a few options. You can use DiamondFinish Clear Aerosol which comes in a Matte Finish. Remember that it takes 6 coats of aerosol to equal 1 coat out of a can. If you want to use DiamondFinish Clear, you can apply your coats of DiamondFinish Clear (always thin) and then wait 24 hours and scuff the surface gently with steel wool to get the desired matte sheen. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  3. RustBlast sprayed onto fully cured RustSeal will not harm the RustSeal and any residue will wash off with plain water. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  4. RustBlast leaves behind a light zinc phosphate coating (dust) which is white in color. If it is humid, the surface can product some flash rust. That flash rust (which is light brown) mixes with the zinc phosphate (which is white) and produces what looks like a lot of flash rust when it is in reality a small amount of flash rust mixed with the zinc phosphate which aids in the adhesion of the Tank Sealer. As long as you did indeed rinse the RustBlast with water and the surface is now 100% bone dry, you are set to proceed to the Tank Sealer Step. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  5. We recommend you always use the products within 2 years for best results. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    Yes, RustSeal will stick extremely well to a non-glossy previous coating. Please pressure wash the surface really well and clean well with KBS Klean. Then etch any bare metal spots with RustBlast. Then apply RustSeal always in thin coats and always at least 2 coats. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  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. “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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. For unfinished aluminum, clean well with KBS Klean, dust a coat of KBS Fusion on and then apply KBS Top Coater.
  20. 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.
  21. So, you are looking for a clear coat for aluminum, correct?
  22. “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!
  23. “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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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?
