    Primer>Color>clear?

    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.

    Primer>Color>clear?

    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!
  4. Thank you very much! Will do.
  5. 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!

    Heat limits of Rust Seal

    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!

    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.
  8. 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.
