Anyone out there using "Zoopseal"?

How does the stuff work? How many steps are in the process? Does it hold up well to heat? Sorry for all the questions, but I really need something like this for my polished parts. I'd hope it works well for the $160 it sells for.

Price on their website is 130 bucks before shipping. I've heard it's good stuff. I used the diamond cote from Eastwood. It's a bunch cheaper but I don't know about it's longevity on wheels. I'm gonna do my diamondplate tool box after I polish it but whew what a job. All those little dimples are heck to get around.

The biggest concern right now is the valve covers. Is the product you're using designed to hold up to high heat?

Eastwood catalog says its good to 300 f. Ideal for underhood applications except exaust manifolds. Resists fuels. 12 oz rattle can is $10.99. Brush on $12.99 pint. Says it's ideal for Mag wheels and aluminum valve covers. I put 3 coats on all my wheels I think it was like 5 minutes apart (while still tacky) and left them in shop until the next day.

Now you have me convinced. I'd much rather spend $12.99 than $130 if it's gonna do the same thing. I'll definitely post pics when it's done. Thanks for the advice!

Go with clear powder coating for 40.00 bucks or so forget the Zoop stuff.

I keep hearing a lot about the powdercoating but I don't know of anyone that does it professionally around here. But if they did it would still require the part to do a sleepover at their shop and I don't really like having to send my stuff out. I have a friend that tried the home powdercoating and the clear made stuff look dull instead of shiney.
