    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.

    not curing

    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.

    For unfinished aluminum, clean well with KBS Klean, dust a coat of KBS Fusion on and then apply KBS Top Coater.

    TeeTop Finish

    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.

    Coating Diamond Plate Steel

    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.

    Coating Diamond Plate Steel

    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?

  13. KBS Top Coater is a superior coating formulated to be brushed, rolled or sprayed offering maximum coverage and professional looking results. KBS Top Coater is an ideal top coat paint for RustSeal when the area will be consistently exposed to sunlight. KBS Top Coater is a very high solids paint that does not run or sag, and gives at least twice the coverage of conventional paints.

I sprayed it on a 2nd time to do a final cleanup then finished off the wells with a sanding disk the followed up with KBS Klean.” -Stacey

    Rust coming through Rust Seal coat

    It is important to know that Tank Sealer does not stick well to cured Tank Sealer without some help. With that in mind, here is what you can do to put a second coat of Tank Sealer in your tank. 1) Clean the inside of the tank extremely well with KBS Klean to get rid of all fuel residue. The sealed tank needs to be very clean. Let the tank dry out 100%. 2) Pour some Fusion Self-Etch Primer in the tank. Roll around so all sides have a nice thin coat and drain out the excess. (Fusion is designed to go on as a dust coat so thin is perfect). 3) Let the tank sit overnight so the Fusion Self-Etch Primer has proper time to cure. 4) Pour another can of Tank Sealer in the tank. Rotate the tank slowly and get all sides coated evenly and then drain out the excess. Be careful to not let the Tank Sealer puddle. 5) Let the tank cure for at least 4 days before putting it back in service. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.

    Rust coming through Rust Seal coat

    RustSeal is typically used on the outside of a tank and Tank Sealer is used on the inside. Just for clarification and so we can give you the best advice, did you coat the outside of the inside of the tank?
