If you’ve been following our site for any length of time, you’ve probably heard of KBS Coatings, and their ever-growing line of high-quality, long-lasting, and durable products. We’ve recently utilized their Rust Prevention system on our ’79 Trans Am project, as well as our 2002 Trans Am and ’87 Buick Grand National. Now, they’ve added a new product to their catalogue, called Motor Coater. It’s designed as a way to paint your engine block the correct shade of hue it left the factory with, (or any color of your personal choosing), while adding longer-lasting durability that you don’t get from your usual spray on engine enamel.
KBS Motor Coater Kit Makes Engines Look Great With a Long-Lasting, High-Quality Finish
The KBS Motor Coater Kit provides your car or truck’s engine with a beautiful and protective finish. This all-inclusive and user-friendly system consists of KBS Klean to clean surfaces, RustBlast to remove rust and corrosion, and Motor Coater, which is a durable engine enamel that has deep and rich pigment for excellent coverage. Motor Coater is currently available in 39 colors.
KBS Klean is a concentrated, water-based, and biodegradable cleaner that deeply penetrates to remove stubborn dirt, grease, and grime. KBS Klean is an excellent alternative to flammable solvents and hazardous chemicals. RustBlast is a powerful rust remover, zinc phosphate pre-primer, and metal etch. RustBlast effectively dissolves rust, corrosion, metal oxides, and tarnish from most metal surfaces while leaving a surface best for paint adhesion.
Motor Coater is a high performance and high gloss paint that can withstand temperatures of up to 450°F and is impervious to oil and gas. It matches OEM standards, and with proper surface preparation will not blister, flake, crack, or peel. Motor Coater has excellent spread ability and is easy to apply by brush, roller, or by spraying. Motor Coater offers superb coverage and is self-leveling to provide a beautiful and smooth finish and without leaving brush marks.
The Kit also includes #1 Thinner which is used to thin Motor Coater for spray applications. KBS Coatings are proudly made in the USA. For more information go to Motor Coater Engine Paint Kit – Caliper Paint Kit – Transmission Paint Kit – KBS Coatings (kbs-coatings.com) or call (888) 531-4527.
