Engine Coater with Motor Coater Engine Paint

“I sprayed 3 coats of KBS Gloss Black Motor Coater allowing each coat to fully cure and scuffing with a red scotch brite pad between coats to get a fairly smooth surface. Finally, I sprayed 3 coats of KBS Diamond Clear. I’m super happy with the results!” -Jamie P

68 C-10 Engine

“Before & After pics of my LT1/4L60E for my ’68 C-10 project. All coatings are Motor Coater. Block is Velvet Black, the rest are Gloss Black, and Aluminum that has been Diamond Clear-coated. Diamond Clear on raw polished aluminum and steel parts as well. Motor Coater and Diamond Clear are my “go to” coatings for the things I want to have a nice finish on. Awesome stuff!” -Chad M.
