  1. So, my aerosol technique might not be the best. Ended up with a lot of orange peel (probably laid it on too thick). Oven cured it, as that seems to smooth it out just a bit. Had some Meguire's "fine cut" #2 cleaner and tried it on the proverbial "inconspicuous" area. Smoothed it right out. Finished it with a coat of Meguire's NXT Tech Wax and it is glossy, smooth and rock hard. Now looks like the powdercoat it is replacing. Pretty amazing stuff.
  2. Sorry to keep bothering, but my application of clear came our slightly 'orange peelish'. It is now heat cured. Can I rough it up and apply another Xtreme clear coat over the top > heat cure to smooth it out? Thank you!
  3. Due to a handling "error", I damaged the primer/color/clear on a section of exhaust. It has not been cured. Is it best to touch up then cure, or cure what is there and touch up? Am guessing re-spray before cure, but you guys know your product best! Thank you much!
  4. Wondering how much heat Rust Seal will tolerate. Am re-doing re-packable motorcycle mufflers and thinking about coating the internal baffle with Rust Seal. Otherwise, I can use the Xtreme Hi-Temp coatings that I have. Just thought that Rust Seal due to its consistency, might be a little more tenacious if it would tolerate say, 400ยบ Thank you!
  5. Thank you very much! I will bear in mind that the zinc primer is a high-temp coating by itself. For anyone reading, this is a pair of Cobra F1 slip-on mufflers that have been on the bike since 2000. They are a steel "mid-pipe/baffle assembly" with an alloy canister riveted over the back half. Other than the internal fiberglass needing a re-pack, I found them in great shape internally, with only surface rust. I wire-wheeled and used RustBlast on the steel baffles and they look great. The Xtreme zinc primer will help them last another 18 years, I'm sure.
  6. I am re-doing a pair of motorcycle mufflers that have some form of very hard, hi-temp factory coating that has lasted 18 years. Rather than strip them completely, I plan to rough the surface up (60-80 grit) and spray over it, since the original coating (whatever it is) has very strong adhesion. Here's my question: I am going to prime with the zinc XTC primer, then coat over that with XTC black, and then XTC clear over the black. Do I risk a too-thick coating that might peel or flake? Single coat of each, or is there the flexibility for 2 coats of each? Thank you very much.
