Rating It worked great!
We used the red engine paint to paint steel wheels for my 1951 Ford. We sandblasted the old wheels, but there was still some pitting. The paint covered very well and goes a long way, color is great. However, some of the wheels were kind of pitted and the paint didn't smooth that out. I love the color and am hoping there is no chipping.

Rating Motor Coater for the win!
I'm trying to restore an 84 Honda CB700sc motorcycle, so when it came to painting the engine I knew KBS would have the right kit to make it happen. I did take the extra time and work to soda blast the engine, then followed up with the Aqua Kleen and Rust Blast steps (even though Aqua Kleen isn't needed on a fully blasted part) I did it anyway to make sure it was prepped correctly. I went with HVLP spray over brushing, I do have to say you need to thin motor coater to work in a spray gun. I didn't thin it enough but it was still very forgiving, it did get some orange peel but the gloss black is so glossy you can't see it unless your up on it. So again thinning is a must. Over all very happy, follow the steps, get a cheap HVLP gun and thin the paint, order extra thinner for clean up, and your good to go.

Rating Excellent product! I would recomend it to anyone!
I used the motor koater system to paint my AMC 343 V8. The caravelle blue came out beautiful with a gorgeous shine! And the prep products also work great and leave a prefect foundation for the color coat!
