Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice finish Using this on the frame and underside of my '76 Gran Torino. Applies easily (DO NOT USE OVER SELF-ETCHING PRIMER!!!!!) and looks great! Let's hope it hold up in the real world....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as it used to be. I've used this product for 25 years. It seems like the quality and solids content have steadily fallen. I used it recently for the last time. It doesn't have the claimed chip resistance, chemical tolerance or adhesion, and this is over a sandblasted and epoxy primed surface. Even several weeks after it's applied, brake parts cleaner will remove it right down to the primer with no effort. For amatuer work it's ok, but why go to the time and trouble to do a frame off restoration and use such a low quality coating? Go with 2K black, it's well worth the additional cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Paint - if you can use it all (nozzle problems) I've used this stuff for over 12 years. I did my '68 Camaro in 2001 and it still looks great and is tough as nails. Lots of material in spray, nice flow, great coverage. I still use it for my projects. My only issue is if I don't use the whole can the same day, when using a partial can a few days or weeks later the tip clogs so easily I rarely finish using the entire can. I can't tell you how many 1/2 used cans end up in the trash. I know how to 'flush' a nozzle and I don't have this issue with other brands. Eastwood needs a high quality delivery system to match the high quality paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Coating, as always! Have used this stuff sporadically for years and never fails to satisfy. Bead-blasted all four 54 F-100 brake backing plates to bare metal for shoe-contact repairs and wanted to add coating. Knowing Self-etch primers aren't allowed with CB and not wanting to diddle with other primers, just sprayed in onto the bare metal per directions. Sprays nicely (dunno what others are talking about with leaky cans), dries hard and nicely glossy (not too glossy), and noticed no signs of lousy adhesion during installation 1.5 weeks later (winter ~53 degrees out). PERFECT coating for my brake job since product descriptive notes resistance to brake fluid. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I use over Rust Encapsulator on frame and parts for a 1968 Corvette that I'm restoring. It looks great and is super tough. I can just about guarantee that the negative reviews come from people who didn't prepare the surface properly, or didn't follow directions, or tried to use Chassis Black over a self-etching primer. It requires a minimum of 2 coats to look good, and you must wait at least 24 hours between coats. I can't speak to any other applications, but on sandblasted bare metal or over Rust Encapsulator it works great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking Good I recently did my frame with it. Came out great. A friend of mine swore I had frame powder coated. No, Just 2 coats of Chassis Black over 2 coats of Rust Encapsulator. Prep work is the key. Make sure everything is clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable easy to use paiint I've used this paint in years past on other restorations. The rattle cans lay down a nice smooth finish with a fan spray nozzle that looks right on most chassis parts and frames. I've not had any trouble with clogging either. It dries reasonably quickly and is very durable after it completely dries. It's convenient in that you don't have to crank up the compressor and dirty up the spray gun for small jobs. I used 5 and a half cans on a Corvette frame, but will probably use another couple of cans on miscellaneous pieces. To me, this paint is more than adequate for use on a collector car that's driven and enjoyed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product The finish of this product is as good as factory finishes. I spray it over a good coat of primer and I haven't had any problems with scratching as others have. My only complaint is the drying time is very long. I too have had 2 of eight cans plug up but I found that the product needs to be shook for a long time before using and frequently during use. I have used it on all my 64 T-bird front suspension and will use it on the rear suspension also. On rusted parts I use Rust Encapsulator first then Chassis black for the top coat for a very tough finished product.

I have sanded down frame to bare metal and primed with a rustoleum sandable primer. Can I apply chassis black on this prep or do I need to use other primer prep before I spray

Asked by: Dye39
We only recommend using this over our Extreme chassis primer. Rustoleum unfortunately isn't really automotive grade paint.

My frame was cleaned some time ago and now has light surface/flash rust! Will this work as a direct coat!

Asked by: smith8833
You will need to use the Rust Encapsulator first, or chemically treat the rust before applying the chassis paint.

What steps do I need to take to re-coat chassis black after several days curing?

Asked by: don61
You will want to scuff the paint with a red scuff pad and then tack it off. Then you are ready to go.

If I am spraying this over an epoxy primer how long should I wait before spraying the chassis black. 

Asked by: nova72
Just observe the flash times of the primer before you top coat with this Chassis black.

I am chemically removing the rust from my chassis parts.  They will be bare metal when finished.  Do I need a primer under the Chassis Black paint, or can/should I shoot right over bare metal?  

Asked by: Bmac12
You can shoot right over the bare metal with the OG chassis black
