    Coats are normally a color change, clear included, after a cure cycle. Don't keep pileing powder on without a cure cycle as you will end up with lots of orange peel.

    Lots of good info here. Guy definitely look into the Kool Koat system. Rick is giving you some great advice there. I hope to get one some day.

    Rydeer, that is a great looking engine and some nice looking parts.

    Finally got a response from Eastwood on these Static Tubes. :screwup: lol

    Looks like I'll be trying my first part later this week.:cool:

    Hi, unfortunately that part was only included in our earlier versions of this gun. We no longer make that part. The performance is the same with/without them we found.

    Hope that helps,

    That's interesting to see that response. When I got my gun it had the 3 tubes. Try it out and let us know how it turns out.

    Otherwise save your $$ and get the Kool Koat Gun.... ;)

    Just got done powder coating some floor vents in Copper veining.
