Default SC coating

note* this is nothing more than a brainstorm. just looking for feedback. im not responsible for anyone that jumps to it.

but yesterday i was in the paint section in Murrays. I saw that spray can bed liner stuff. i know that stuff would be extremely durable, to the elements. and it has a rough surface. so it may dissapate heat, with the same principle as the wrinkle finish. but im not sure on its tempurature rating. idk how it would handle eng bay temps.

any thoughts?

You have a spare supercharger to test it on? If not, forget it and go with what we know works.

I have 2. but both are expected to be sold today.

i think im gonna get a can next time im there and try your same oven experiment, to see how it holds up to heat. and how well it dissapates.

I would think it would act more as an insulator, given the thickness of the stuff. And it will take MUCH more to make it wrinkle than the Krylon paint. If you want to try something different, look for VHT wrinkle paint. It comes in several colors, and would provide a much better comparison than the bedliner stuff.

my first thougt was just that it would be EXTREMELY durable. not that i want to find a different coating, just to have the "one and only". it was just one of those "lightbulbs" that went off.

The VHT paint is actually formulated for high-temp usage (Though we know the Krylon holds up very well in that respect), and should be just as, if not, more durable. Using the bedliner, though durable as hell once fully cured, would retain heat and lots of it...negating the wrinkle effect.

Summit Racing has the VHT paint, and I look to paint my Genny 3 with it when the time comes.

Vinyl; it'* going to insulate and will not handle the temps the blowwer can reach.
Basicly the same thing the handles of most pliers have on them.
