That is what I used. VHT high temp wrinkle. It was pretty cool in my garage when I did that. Probably a little cooler than it should have been for painting I just took a few more minutes between coats (3). I will check the instructions on the can but all I can remember was 3 coats in different directions.

It's weird shit. It goes on like regular paint, maybe a touch thicker, and it doesn't look like that until it is dry.

This is what it looked like when I pulled the masking off. It was not fully cured when I did this but it was dry to the touch. I walked away for about 15 minutes and when I came back it magically transformed.

07 Boss You don.t need any heat, at least not any more than normal rattle can painting. I've never seen that before.




I don't see how it shouldn't work. Cleaning, prep and a good adhesion promoter should work well. It's not like it gets real hot.

Wrinkle Black on intake manifold?

So I've been thinking about doing wrinkle black on my intake manifold, since I have the textured black FRPP valve covers.

Would that stuff work correctly on plastic? I know you're supposed to apply heat to make it wrinkle but is that a necessity? I mean I guess I could if I needed to.
