  • KL primer

    KL primer to the rescue! Here's a bad chromed trans end cover. Choices...send off for dechrome and wait or sand as smooth as poss ( HARD to do with a chrome edge! ) and prime. This is the before and after results after ONE HEAVY coat of KL primer and sanded smooth. I LIKE IT!

    Re: KL primer

    can kl primer be covered only using a hobby gun or would i have to hot flock it? lots of guys give me motorcycle parts that are peeling and so far i have been able to convince them to let me shoot it with a wrinkle finish but this looks like an good alternative.

      Nice. I just bought some of that. I'm also anxious to see how it works getting outgassing on valve covers under control.

      I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, and too old to take an ass-whoopin'!

          It works with pinholes. Some say they're a type of outgassing, it plugged em up whatever causes them! Pics of that project under "pinholes" on one these 2 forums!

              This is the best base coat I have found. It can be applied thick and sands very well.

                  It's just like other powders, if you can "cold shoot" with your hobby gun now, you should be able to coat this cold also.

                        I'm liking what I'm seeing. Maybe a dumb question, but instead of sanding, couldn't you blast it and then add the primer

                          Did you just apply the primer a little heavier where the chrome was missing? I have some body panels that have some defects in them you can't see till it's powdered. I was thinking of giving the KL a try to see how it comes out.

                            I was able to "hand pick" some more chrome off so the chrome free spots were a little bigger than the pics, but yes, extra heavy there to smooth out the ridges.
