Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Do I Bake After Each Coat, Or Just Once After All Primer And Top Coats Are Dry?

Left to right, High Heat Primer, Flat Black, and Clear Coat.

Each can has almost identical steps for coating and drying, and curing.

However, none answer this question:

Do I bake (cure) after each coat, or just once after all the primer and top coats have been applied and air-dried?

Please let me know.

Thanks.

Bill, while I don't have your answer, there should be an 800 number somewhere on the can to call if you have questions. If not there, possibly on their website?

Rustoleum seems to be pretty good with customer support based on posts on this Forum.

I wrote an e-mail, and just called customer support; I'll call back Monday when they're open.

Thanks, guys.

I watched the video and the baking is done after all the coats of paint have been applied.

Customer Service at Rustoleum just confirmed that Tony's correct; baking / curing is done after all coats of paint have been applied and dried per their directions.

Now...where can I find an oven to do this without causing problems at home?!?!

Bill,

You could always do what I do. Just volunteer to feed your neighbors pets while they are away.

I'm not saying anything more! :-)

If the instructions are followed correctly all will be well.

Unfortunately often people think because they are spraying the paint it dries fast and tend to load up coat after coat with not enough time between coats.

If too much paint is applied too quickly the top coat may dry out because the solvent can escape but previous coats may not be able to release their solvent and if then prematurely baked the solvent underneath will break through the top coat and the finish will have holes in it (usually referred to as pinholes)

So leave lots the time between coats during applications and before baking.

One other point, baking paint usually requires a specific oven, one that has a flue and a fan to expel any solvent present, solvent trapped in the oven may then be able to be ignited.

So again make sure the paint is well and truly dried out before baking.

I assume you are talking about the exhaust manifold. Why bother painting it at all?

Brian, after I got it, I laughed my butt off!

Peter, I'm letting it dry each time overnight.

Larry, appearance. Which leads me to a new thread, "Am I Building A Problem?"

Bill, after all I have tried over the years, I also endorse Calyx Manifold Restoration Paint Dressing as above. I have it on a newer pickup that I replaced the engine in last year, the truck sits outside year round, and gets use once or twice a month and has held up pretty good. The only real issue I have seen is were the A/C line condenses water off it and drips on the manifold. In that spot it has wore off.

I would personally return the paint and use the Calyx.
