For maximum adhesion, start with a clean, dry surface. If surface is glossy or rusty, scuff with steel wool or similar pad.
To protect from overspray, cover and tape off wheel wells, lugs, floor, and other surrounding areas you do not want painted. However, overspray can be removed with mineral spirits immediately after paint application while surface is still wet.
Shake can for a full 2 minutes after the agitator ball begins to rattle. Repeat for 10 seconds after each 5 minutes of use. Spray a thin, even coat approximately 8" to 10" away from surface (or experiment with the distance to achieve desired finish). Repeat within 10 to 15 minutes until desired color is achieved. For maximum protection, spray a final coat 5" to 6" away from surface (be careful to avoid running).
Depending on humidity, paint dries to the touch in 15 to 25 minutes (air dries overnight). For increased heat and chemical resistance, apply heat within 7 days. Curing may also be accomplished due to the inherent heat of operation or in a proper oven.
How to Apply
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
