    Default Clear Coat Renault Aluminium castings

    Hi Guys, The 365-00's housings from the 12G have had a light blasting and look amazing, the next question is what to coat them in to prevent oil and grease etching in and to preserve this look. I noticed that both KBS & POR have a product, has anyone used either or do you have alternative suggestions??? Thanks in advance peeps

    I have coated all the aluminium bits for the 404 in POR Glisten. It has a high gloss finish, but the aluminium looks a little darker when it dries. Cannot comment on the long term results, as the car is not finished yet. See photos below. I have been assured that it will not yellow or peel, under normal engine running conditions (?). What I do like about it, is it is bush-able and the coating is self-levelling.

    Cheers,

    Dano

    I have also used Glisten. I have an alternator done in it years ago I'll find it tomorrow and see how it has lasted.

    Sorry about that. I'll try and remember to do it tomorrow. From memory I think normal engine bay heat is ok. This is the Glisten Product sheet.

    Bugger. Hadn't thought of this. Good idea

    Now going to have to take it all apart and start again

    Wasn't aware that one could get clear Pore. Have used the black stuff pretty liberally and love it - sticks like shit to a blanket on sand/soda blasted steel.

    Andrew, had all the aluminium wet blasted. The finish was amazing.


    Johnny, As for grease, any grease or oil I've gotten on these parts so far has just wiped off. Being two pack it is fairly durable.

    I checked the alternator and the clear is very shiney. There are a few chip marks that have since got a bit of corrosion. The aluminium seems grey undernieth the clear, rather than the shine I know it originally had. Oil and dirt just wipe off. However over that period of time aluminium left with out a coat would look very dirty and grey anyway. At least this wipes clean and looks ok.
