Q: Looking to brush this on and wanted to know what type of thinning agent I would need?

Asked by: Dan - 7/22/2014
A: Thinning is not generally required but if needed 5%-10% is normally adequate. Use KBS #1 Thinner only which is a slow evaporating solvent.

Q: Do you need to primer, or use a prep coating on the motor first?

Asked by: Bob - 2/17/2019
A: As long as the motor has been cleaned well with KBS Klean, you can simply apply Motor Coater with no primer necessary. If you need rust protection, we always recommend cleaning with KBS Klean, etching with RustBlast and then RustSeal (which can be brushed on) as the primer (at least 2 thin coats) and then Motor Coater. The other benefit to applying RustSeal before Motor Coater is that RustSeal helps to smooth out what is typically a rough surface of the motor making the Motor Coater look amazing when it is brushed over that newly smooth surface.

  1. Awesome Stuff!

    Posted by Reviewed by: Chad M from Wakarusa, IN on 7/21/2017 on 13th Feb 2020

    I love this stuff! The Gloss Black is "super juicy"! The Velvet Black looks like fine leather, and the Aluminum looks just like what it's called. I add Diamond Clear over the Aluminum and it looks amazing! I used it on the entire engine and transmission, as well as spindles, calipers, rotors, and drums. With the Diamond Clear, it should be durable for decades! Motor Coater is my "go to" when I want the "better finish" out of an aerosol. Bulk sprays nicely out of the gun as well, just a lot of clean up afterwards. Can't go wrong!

  2. Rock Solid Paint

    Posted by Reviewed by: MICHAEL G from SAINT INIGOES, MD on 3/16/2019 on 13th Feb 2020

    This is excellent paint for engine coating. I used it to paint the transmission and engine. After cleaning the block, I painted the it. Four days later, I was honing cylinders, chasing holes, and getting the block wet with solvents and oil. The paint dried rock hard and cleaned up with no damage from the solvents. Great stuff!

  3. Great engine assy paint

    Posted by Reviewed by: Gary V from Hudsonville on 3/19/2019 on 13th Feb 2020

    I use this on old aircraft engines I overhaul, mainly magneto,'s and carburators, easy to brush on no brush marks, flows out nice, gas and oil proof, nice gloss

  4. Jaguar Engine Rebuild

    Posted by Reviewed by: Bruce Murray from Winchester MA on 9/3/2019 on 13th Feb 2020

    The Alpine Green paint was used on the cylinder head of my 1967 Jaguar XK 3.4 engine. It is a close copy of the color originally used by Jaguar. The paint went on beautifully and there are no brush marks. I am very pleased indeed

  5. Perfect

    Posted by James Petersen on 8th Dec 2016

    The color match is perfect. I brushed it on and it is absolutely beautiful not a brush mark anywhere.

    Thank You
