eastwood's chassis paint:drying problems ?

I'm looking for a chassis paint to be used in the next two weeks sometime.
Been looking at Eastwoods chassis paints amongst others. While reading about the products I clicked on the "customers comments" button and read a number of posts about the paint taking 3 days to dry. Eastwood also posted saying the product was re-formulated to improve that.

Anyone here with first hand experiences?

Thanks,

Keith

Always two sides...No way of telling the
competency of the person using the paint..
hopefully someone on here has tried it..

They have two products actually..chassis paint
and extreme chassis paint..

Well I totally agree with that statement, I must have misunderstood the post cause I red into it somehow that there were multiple post on that, I find that most Eastwood's products work as advertised and use quite a few of their items. But I am old enough to know there is no perfect company or product. So I will be watching this post for more information.

Eastwood Chassis Black

Eastwood's Chassis Black is made with a high amount of quality resins, it is designed for maximum coverage, with minimum application- if you lay it on thick it will take a long time to dry. This is a specially formulated coating, not patio furniture paint.

Thanks for the explanation EW. Can I assume
you represent Eastwood's? Can this product be
reduced? either the chassis black or extreme chassis black?

Appreciate your comments,

Keith

Hey Keith,
I am the Chemical product manager for Eastwood. We did reformulate the product, but that was a few years ago. You can reduce the quarts & gallons, but its not necessary. You can EM me at jrobinson@eastwood.com.

Thanks again for responding in an open forum like this.
I'll likely give this a try and build light although wet coats
as opposed to one heavy one.

The customer comments aren't dated so one cannot tell if the
comments are old or recent. I have some other questions however
I'll PM them to your email address.

Appreciated getting comments from the horses mouth JR.

Keith

No problem Keith, i take it a bit personal when my products get trashed, LOL. We are motorheads here and we wouldn't sell anything that we wouldn't use on our cars. In fact we are putting my 67 chevelle on an apparatus the"tilts" the car 80° to access the underside, look for pics in upcoming catalogs!
Regards,
JR

PS- look for some cool new coatings in the coming months, i have a lot in the works!

Kool JR-

I hope you feel the comments were presented fairly.

I have the catalog with that car rotation device.

While I have you. Can you tell me the difference between the
chassis black and extreme chassis black? one epoxy? one not?

thanks,

Keith

Keith- I do think the comments were fair- one thing I've learned, you will not please all the people all the time and have a thick skin.

The main difference between Classic and extreme, is Extreme has 3 times the resin and a higher temperature threshold, 300°. Em me at jrobinson@eastwood.com and i'll send you a can to try.

I can say this about the Chassis Black, having used it for many, many years. It's excellent. It sprays nice, covers super and is really tough for a direct spray out of a quart product. I have cut it with thinner, around 25% to 40% for my HVLP guns. It sprays the best for me in that range. Two coats is more than enough for full coverage. Lays smooth and doesn't take long to dry.

It does a great job.

I think that's pretty cool too that you have the confidence and pride in your products to attempt to dispel rumors in an open forum, especially for someone who is not a salesman.
Typically, we have to rely on the real world experiences of other users to formulate our opinions, not knowing if they used it correctly or not, or have an axe to grind.
FWIW from my experience, Eastwood products though expensive, generally work well.
