I have used KBS coatings on two engines now. My pride and joy is a 1969 Camaro. The paint is easy to apply and keeps a brilliant finish that has yet to fade. I was thouroughly impressed both times. I absolutely recommend KBS cleaner and paints to the do it yourselfer.

I often spray a urethane clearcoat over rattlecan engine paint to get a deep gloss and a nice finish that's easy to keep clean. I sprayed 2 coats of this Engine Enamel and got the effect I was looking for! I'll certainly buy this product i other colors as the need arises, as the results are supurb!

Hey, I've used KBS products before(gas tank sealer for our '57 Chevy Bel Air) and liked the results a lot....SO HAD to try out the MOATER COATER. Just as advertised, it flowed great, after using a standard paint brush, which is a big plus for me since, not spraying, a respirator was not necessary. Interestingly, after application I kept checking for setup by sight and was amazed to find that it still looks wet, after well dry. All that remains now is to see how it looks following mating our motor to the '57. We'll be back in about a month to report on how well MOATER COATER holds up under a few hours of running the engine. We're very hopeful and happy too!

Rating Excellent adhesion, coverage
 
Bought this to paint to paint a couple engine builds I recently did. With the right amount of thinner added and proper size spray gun tip, this paint shoots pretty nice. I also used this to re-shoot the intake breather assembly. The finish was great. I do find when you add the thinner in order to shoot it with a gun, it takes more time to fully cure. The durability has been great so far. A little expensive but its the Best paint for engines I have found so far !

I put the motor coat paint on all my outside steel products! It covers great ,flows super smooth and seems to have great durability. Counter to recommendations, I steel brush the rust and apply on the brushed surface. It works great.
