I'm pretty sure most of the rattle can engine enamels do not achieve chemical resistant until they are cured properly, unless rustoleum is different i'd be cautious with the fuel
I wondered this, too. According to Rustoleum's tech data sheet, the paint will reach a full cure in 7 days. I can say that I've tested the fuel resistance a bit when I spilled gas onto the engine when priming the carbs for the first time. The paint didn't seem to bubble or have any lasting effect and I was able to wipe it up with out it transferring to the shop towel. I'm sure it's time dependent to an extent. Should I spill on the tank I'd be wiping it up PDQ.adventurco said:I'm pretty sure most of the rattle can engine enamels do not achieve chemical resistant until they are cured properly, unless rustoleum is different i'd be cautious with the fuel
Thanks, jpmobius!jpmobius said:You've done a lovely tasteful job - worth preserving!
Agreed - I think if I ever do a second, more fancy bike then I'll look harder for the 2k.Maritime said:Nice write up Northish, good info and true, the clear yo have will be ok if you are careful and clean gas off right away and use water etc. but if you miss a dribble it will cloud up in the spots, I have personal experience with that, the 2K you can be pretty careless and not hurt it which is insurance I need when the bike is a heavy rider, if it is a once and a while I wouldn't worry as much.
Haha! You hit the nail on the head danejurrous... I've been telling people essentially that; that I'm just making very expensive garage art. I suppose I could try to get it in the house somewhere though...danejurrous said:Worst case scenario, doubt it would come to this with all your meticulous work, you have a killer looking piece of art to put up in the house.
Thank you, DannyMotor That means a lot. I see you've had to mess with 4 carbs on your GS. I can't even imagine... The two on mine are intimidating enough.DannyMotor said:I absolutely love how this is coming out! Great work!
Thx 5ivemoto - I appreciate the kind words.5ivemoto said:Very cool project. Really dig it. The rattle can paint job looks stellar nice tape lines. Just all around good stuff. Kudos
