Painting parts


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm currently in the process of fixing my car, cleaning and painting parts along the way. It's somewhat a slow process as I get the money together for everything, so I'm proceeding step by step. I have for example my aluminum plenum off, ready to scrub and clean it. But of course, I want to avoid flash rust.

My question is, could I apply XTC primer to the parts and wait for a week or so before painting color and clear coats on it? Or is it better to apply the other products right after the drying time of the XTC primer? Thanks in advance

Yes, you can apply your coats of XTC Primer (with the appropriate time between coats) and then wait up to 7 days before you apply the XTC and then do your temperature cure.

Please carefully review the XTC Primer Directions and the XTC Directions before starting your project and reach out to us if you have any further questions.

Yes, you can wait to do the temperature cure. We recommend doing the temperature cure within 30 days. After proper dry time, XTC and XTC Primer will be dry to the touch and can be handled using care, but resins will not reach full hardness until heated to approx. 350° F (176° C). For headers or manifolds, this can be done in an oven, BBQ, or by mounting back on engine and run to normal operating temperature. If you are coating an intake, you will probably need to do the temperature cure in an oven or grill as the intake usually does not get to 350F.

Hopefully that helps. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us.
