Here you go. Let me know if you have any questions
Spraying Tintable Monstaliner + Monstashades with the Walcom Shutz Gun
1) Before you start: You must have a new or clean 2 gallon plastic bucket. Monstashades color and the catalyst will not all fit into the tintable gallon can.
2) The siphon tube supplied with the Walcom gun is a bit too long when the quart can is screwed up under the gun. Carefully cut a small piece off the end
of the tube at a 45 degree angle. Test fit the tube before cutting to make sure you do not cut it too short. 3/8 to 1/2" should be enough to remove.
The angled cut end goes towards the bottom of the can.
3) The Walcom gun has a nice tip adustment. Start spraying with the tip screwed all the way in and back it out no more than 1/2 way.
Hand shake gallon of tintable for 30 seconds. Hand shake can of Monstashades color concentrate for 5 seconds. Open both cans and dump entire contents
of color concentrate into gallon. Add 2 tablespoons of MEK or Acetone TO THE EMPTY COLOR CONCENTRATE CAN and reseal the can. Shake vigorously for 5 seconds
and dump wash solvent into tintable gallon.
Power mix tintable gallon with color at medium speed for 2 minutes. Dump entire contents of color mixture into your 2 gallon bucket. Scrape sides and bottom
of can with paint paddle to get as much out as possible. Shake Monstaliner Catalyst for 10 seconds and pour entire contents into bucket with tinted mixture.
Power mix bucket at medium speed for 1 minute and stop. Scrape out remaining catalyst into bucket and continue power mixing for an additional 3 - 4 minutes.
Note: While mixing, stop periodically to scrape sides and bottom of bucket with paint mixing stick.
Add 4 ounces of MEK or Acetone to the bucket and power mix for 1 additional minute.
Fill your quart Shutz can with the mixture and put the cap on the can. Pour the remaining tinted/catalyzed mixture back into the original gallon paint can and sit the lid on it.
DO NOT under any circumstances leave the mixed material in the plastic bucket.
Attach the full Shutz can to the gun and spray a test spot at 50 - 60 PSI. For the 1st coat, spray evenly but do not try to achieve full coverage or you could
cause drips/runs. Cover all surfaces so you still see some of the underlying paint showing through. Refill Shutz can as needed. Reseal the gallon Monstaliner
can after you fill the Shutz can each time. Spraying inside a jeep tub you should only need to fill the gun 1 more time after initial fill.
When done with 1st coat, pour any remaining material from gun back into the gallon can. Scrape down the sides of the can so little or no coating clings to the sides.
Pour 2 - 3 ounces of MEK or Acetone INTO THE EMPTY SHUTZ CAN, cap the can and shake vigorously to wash the can. Pour this solvent gently over the surface as
a "float" over remaining material in gallon to prevent it from thickening at the surface. When you open the can to start your 2nd coat just mix in the floating solvent.
Wait 1 hour before starting the 2nd coat. At this point, the Monstaliner mixture will have thickened some and now is when you are going to get some awesome texture.
Refill the gun and go. If the material is not spraying enough just up the pressure. You can go to the max, 80 to 100 PSI.
Note: If you do not rinse the Shutz can between coats it's possible that some material will thicken inside the can and cause chunks to blow out on the 2nd coat.
