    When they say this stuff is permanent, they mean it. Did a great job on undercariage and it really bonds well. A little to shiny, but still pretty impresive of a finish. Anyone who was wondering if the stuff is worth it, oh yea! Just buy a gallon though as it will do an entire K5 underneath if sprayed. Just a note, remove any overspray before it dries, or it aint comin off with anything but time, even on you skin. LOL.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    Just curious...how much did a gallon set you back? What kind of prep work did you do?

    The only prep work I did was take a wire wheel and go over the rust spots with it....

    300 PSI power wash, then Metal Ready (POR 15) to prep surface. Probably could use Acetone for much cheaper. Hint, don't spray Metal Ready or POR 15 wihtout gas mask or organic vapor particle respirator and sealed glasses. The stuff burns eyes big time.

    What type of gun did you have to use to spray it? Does a regular paint gun work or do you use an undercoating gun?

    Regular spray gun, dilute 5% with xylene. Also, 65 a gallon, or 35 a quart.

    Thanks for the info Joel! [​IMG]
    I always thought it would be too thick to go through a regular gun...then again I've never used it.[​IMG]

    riz... I'm a realistic fineline artist... I prefer (for most pieces) to use a stencil for the basic outline and then detail frehand. Go to www.saddletramps.com/BlazerK5.htm
