I just got a Streetdampr. It's made of steel and says it's paintable.

Dumb Question:
-------------
If I don't paint it, will it rust? It is steel. If I do paint it I'd want to use the POR engine kit. That means Marine Clean and Metal Ready first.

Is it ok to use these products on the dampr???

Thanks,
Rob

RF,it is going to rust if its not protected. I assume this balancer is also degreed. Use POR if thats your deal, mask the snout and the inner surface that slides over the crank. Then take a small brush and paint the degree lines after the POR dries. Should be cool.

Bob, the engine paint requires heat to cure. I was going to do my bellhousing with the chevy orange but was told it won't fully cure.

Rob it wont cure. I dont know if you remeber the rear end cover i told you i painted. Well i took a chisel and make a small slice, put my finger underneath, and pulled all the "paint" (i wont consider it paint) off with my fingers. It should cure on the engine, but find something else else for the balancer.
I used Duplicolor from dupont and it worked great.

I'll look for the Duplicolor.

Thanks again,
Rob
