So I was kind of shocked all of my KBS stuff arrived on the same day, even though some of it shipped from the manufacturer and not Summit Racing directly.
But, I have everything I need to at least try these products out on the trailing arm, spring plate, and cover.
I still may try to acquire a new OEM or aftermarket spring plate cover though. The dent in it is not going to come out, and I don’t have the kind of metal tools to get a dent out of something so thick like the steel thickness of the cover.
Now the products all seem to require working at 55°F or higher but I tend to like to work with most liquids around 65°F or so. I may still wait until it is a bit warmer to seal the metal, but in reviewing the steps, a couple hours difference from cure time could mean needing to sand the surface again, something I’d like to avoid doing multiple times.
The solvent has made a huge difference, softening up the undercoating in huge chunks, getting underneath the crap and between it and the painted metal surface.
I had poured over more solvent last night and just that amount was enough to make a difference this morning.
The undercoating brushed right off.
I poured more over the part and I suspect later today after work I’ll be able to go out and it will be ready to just pull the part out and wash it all off.
