Has anyone used the por15 gloss black chassis paint? (Not the stuff made to apply over rust; they have a topcoat designed for car chassis that is supposedly tougher than the average auto paint. I'm thinking of using it for frame and other black parts.

Yes, I have used it. Don't try and brush it on as they say it can be...it must be sprayed.Brushing is fine for a car chassis (I guess) but not for your motorcycle parts. I tried it just to see if it would work and quickly found it didn't...just on a test piece. But yeah, I like the POR-15 stuff.

Jon, what kind of respirator do you use when spraying POR-15? For the frame I would use the regular POR-15 first, then top it with the chassis black.

Sorry,I haven't sprayed it using a paint gun. My brushing it on brought me to the conclusion that it needs to be sprayed if using it on mototcycle parts.

The POR-15 black rust preventative paint doesn't show brush lines, but the chassis black does.I had to sand out the lines and clearcote the pieces I did use it on. Nothing major (small parts), so I got away with it.

Hey Guys, yea i'm gonna use the por15 THEN the Blackcote for the topcoat. Anyone know if blackcote works well with a brush? The chassis coat is a semi-gloss whereas Blackcote is gloss.I'll prob use por15 in grey and blackcote on top so i see if the topcoat is thoroughly done. Cheers ,Guybo.

has anyone ever used this stuff on cylinders? would it contain the heat too much?

It almost seems like the coating the factory used on the cylinders

I've heard that the glossy and glassy looking por15 rust preventive paint is sensitive to UV light.

powdercoat it.....................and be done with it, cheaper harder, flows better when applied by experience,drop awrench on it the paint stays where its at. in the long run you`ll wear your self out, and cost you more monry, believe me i`ve been there, won`t go back. cool smile they`ll p.c your parts any color you wish, added bonus TSHelp

I hear you Bob, it might not be quite as good, but it would be done at home and I think either the single part blackcote ($44.00/quart) or the 2 part "hardnose" (~60.00/quart) would be cheaper than powdercoating, especially with all the little extra bits, footpeg hangers, etc. to do.

Guybo,

Now that you mention it, it was the Blackcote that I used...not the Chassis Black. As far as using a brush, it is out of the question with that stuff. It is thin and really shows the brush marks...it is also not hard like the rust preventative POR-15 that is applied first.

The rust preventative Black and Silver POR-15 base coats are sensitive to UV light and susceptible to fading. That's what the top coats of let's say Blackcote are for.
