I bought them, sold in a 2 pack, took them home and put some whole milk in one just to try something thicker than water. Once I had the spout adjusted to a mist(kinda like what comes out if a sprinkler in the produce section of Krogers) i KNEW i had found my weapon for the job! Is CS thicker than milk without using the thinner?

OH BTW-What companies carry your line of products including CS and Monsta?
CS is only as thick as Rustoleum type black enamel paint so I would say that is much thicker than milk

Regular spray guns atomize paint to a very fine mist which is why you can spray paint without it running all over the place. The atomized particles are very light weight so as they build up slowly they stay where you sprayed them.

A garden sprayer does not build up the kind of constant pressure you get from an air compressor which is needed to create these small particles..

I would test this with some regular paint before going ahead and spraying CS like this.

Here's a dealer locator for CS.
http://www.magnetpaints.com/distributors.asp

Only some dealers may carry Monstaliner at this point so let me know if you can't find it local. If the warehouse these stores buy from stocks ML, the store may be able to get it for you in just a few days.

Hey thanks for the info! So how thin do think I could make CS, using the thinner, and still get good results? I realize(and planned on) a few coats will be necessary...Ya think I can thin it down to "milk" and still get good results for the inside of the frame? Im just gonna brush the outside.

The thinner you make it the more it's going to run with your spray method so just be careful. Start with 5% reducer.

How large is the tank/bottle on these pressurized sprays you got?

In my experience, chassis saver is thicker than rustoleum, not so much in the can, but when you apply it, its a much tougher, thicker, durable finish. And I used rustoleum for years until I tried chassis saver I'm sold on it.

This says it all.



That and if you check the links in my sig, you will see I painted everything, including myself with it.

UPDATE. I painted rustoleum rusty metal primer directly from the can inside the floor pans of one of my shells. and painted over it with rustoleum paint. After one winter under a tarp getting water inside of it. ITS RUSTY.

Never again, and I use to have success with it. shakes head. CHASSIS SAVER IS THE MOVE

still wet on my home made recovery bumper. 1 coat brushed.


If you look inside you will see the gas tank, straps and entire floor is painted with chassis saver. 1 thick coat by brush.
I'm not gentle with it. I throw tools in there. I slide the tank around I slide my diff cover in there.
Chassis saver is tough. I canot wait to monstaliner over it. I'm so happy with the product. Do not hesitate.

I think the sprayer is 1 gallon but I put a 20oz bottle of milk in it and it worked great til I got down to like 4oz. in the bottom.

Alright, monstaliner is exploding and I'm glad to see that happening. Still waiting on your colors though lol. I just had a few questions about chassis saver since I get a free quart of it with my monsta. I'm going to be pulling a new rear axle at the local u-pull it. Would this be a good application for chassis saver (it's fairly rusted, I plan on just removing the loose rust with a light sanding and then coating), what color would you recommend?

What every color you go with, I'd put a coat of rattle can overtop of it so the CS doesnt fade....BUT I'm no expert.

I know about the fading, just curious about the fillers like I know the silverish one has aluminum in it and is good for filling and smoothing out a rougher surface but Idk what would be the best option to coat a rusty axle, I planned on putting some of magnet paints own enamel over top when done.

I like the silver best and then just paint over that with light scuff sand first

Make sure to degrease well on axle components before coating

Did the first coat of Chassis Saver on my frame yesterday, took almost a full afternoon to brush the 1 coat. I found in some areas if I slightly thinned it I could get it to creep into the little areas..

Here are a few pics:

After:

I was extremely happy so far with both the ease of application and the coating itself, the plan is to do another coat and then a few coats of Tremclad Professional for the parts exposed to sun..

Nice, I always like to thin CS even when brushing. Just makes it flow a little better and easier to spread

No it's satin. If it was flat it would be called flat

It has a low sheen
