I used the duplicolor silver. Cleaned it ub with a brillo pad, then sprayed in place. Aluminum foil is good masking material for detailing. I think you have too much rust/corrosion for a clear type stuff. I also painted the master cylinder with Eastwood high temp gary. Clean it with brake cleaner, then brush it on right over the rust. Bullet proof.

(Course it would be easier with the engine out):D

Is your booster chrome? Buy reading that description it is for painting over chrome. If it's normal metal I prefer rustoleium.

Too bad we can't get that stuff here, I know a guy that used it on an airbox he built, if he hadn't told me it was that stuff I'd have thought it was anodized for real.

OOPPSS did not catch the part about working on chrome only. so i will forget about that plan :laughing: I will remove it from the car and clean it with my bead blast cabinet first and see what it looks like after that,if it does not clean up very good just may replace it.


TT can't you just order some and have it shipped to you?

Works on Chrome only? Maybe I read something wrong, but it looks like it works on all metal and even non-metal if you use their base coat.

That stuff looks really cool.

Bird, you're booster turned out really nice.

I wonder if that stuff could hold up on a brake caliper?

Aerosol cans cannot be shipped air - that's what most if not all catalogs say, ground only....
I'm really gettin a good laugh out of this when I think about how many aerosol cans are on a passemger plane (deodorant, hairspray, and so on) ... :laughing:

The Eastwood stuff defenitely would. You can brush it right over rust, and it sticks like no tomarrow. Good stuff.

Went to the paint store and purchased that anodized paint,plus a base coat that you apply first to non chrome parts,will give it a try and see what happens.

So yes it can be applied to non chrome parts you have to use their base coat first,so the instructions say anyway :laughing:

I thought the base coat was an adhesion promoter for chrome?
You are right :thumbsup: there is an adhesion promoter and another base coat for non chrome parts called Metallic Ground Coat. give me another 30 mins or sooo and i will post some pics,almost done with painting.

Yip :D thats what you said so it would match the air breather filter so that's what i did, don't you like it now :lookinup: you better i followed your advice. I think it will look even better after it cures overnight and i clear coat it.
But you know what that silver ground coat don't look bad either.
