Default After pan replacement
Re:: which comes first?   

The PO welded in some new pans, but then stopped so there's a little surface rust a few places. I have Master Series to stop/contain the rust, but the new joints will also need seam sealer - or is the Master Series enough?

If I should use both, which goes on first?

Default Re: After pan replacement

I can't say what's right but here's what I did:

welded in new pans



flipped the pan over and made sure the seam was tight. I had to use a body hammer to flatten out the tunnel lip so it was tight against the pan
(NO PIC)

Then, I blasted both sides of the pan


and then two coats of silver Masterseries on each side


followed by two coats of black masterseries on each side



I tilted the pan and brushed the masterseries down into the seam. I did not use any seam sealer at all.
It sat out in the rain and Florida sun for a year


then I sold it and the next owner is still driving it last time I saw him.

So. I need to ask. Those of you who use Master Series paint, are most of you brushing or spraying it on? If brushing, how long to dry and what about brush strokes? How much does it take to do a VW pan on both sides? How many colors are available/

I brushed mine but it can be sprayed. Chuck includes directions and you can email him with any questions. I used a quart of silver to do two coats on both sides and less than a quart of black to do two coats on both sides. It does not take long to cure here in Florida but I would wait a bit between the silver and black if you use both. I did get some light streaking but I'm sure it was my fault. Brush strokes were minimal if any. The stuff is tough as nails. I've hit it with a hammer (bounced off another part) and barely made a mark. I got a little in some threaded holes and had to retap the holes to clean them out. It seems like there were multiple colors but you can check out the website for that, plus you can paint over it. The black I used is not UV safe and it did fade after sitting outside for a year. I sprayed over it with glass black rustoleum and it stuck to it just fine.

BTW, I have nothing to do with Chuck or masterseries...just telling of my experience with it.
