Thumbs down VHT Red Wrinkle Plus

I recently purchased this paint to paint my VC red wrinkle, I thought by the cap the red would not be a blinding blaze of red-orange, but was I wrong, this paint is the most red shade of red I have ever seen. My first problem with this paint is the drying process, I allowed for ample time for the paint to dry, 24 hours to be exact, and I also baked it in the oven, but it was still taxky and not dry! The can said do not use above 60% humidity but it was only 30% humidity outside when I used it! The VC ended up being tooooooo red and I stripped it off the next day, not to mention after using a full can of aircraft stripper the paint was still on the VC! I wouldn't suggest this paint to anyone wanting red wrinkle.

This paint worked fine for me. Its a nice shade of red. Also if you would read the can it says to allow 48hrs to cure. Its a texture paint.. its gonna take longer to dry.

You are suppose to bake it in an oven... worked amazing for me, only 2 small flaws due to my own errors (fingers bumping into it while it was wet).

I absolutely loved this paint. When finished comes out cherry red. I give it 10/10 if you follow the instructions perfectly. When you spray it, it is orange. After you bake it, it is red. 200 degree F for 30 min. I'll get some better focused pictures later, but as you can see the colour is really nice.

it worked great for me!!! i thought it was the best thing ever...the first time i did my vc i did about 3 coats, going in different directions...then baked it in the oven...second time, cuz a mechanic put his greasy hands all over it and got it really dirty, i sprayed two coats then let it sit and dry in the sun (also came out great)..

I don't know about you guys, but it was toooo much red for me, I feel even the h22a vc would be too much red, but to each their own!

i need to buy a new cover took my car into a local place to get the oil change...never doing that again. they stripped the threads in my oil pan refused to retap it and just put a butterfly plug on it...and to make it worse they split oil over my regular black valve cover and its like baked on. fucking lame.

I used this stuff with good results. I had to do it twice because the first time I couldn't get the coats to be even and I had runs in it.

Prudz lude: I hope with that paint that you got inside the spark plug cover holes, your bolts will still thread. If you are leaving the cover off, you're good to go

Here's what mine came out looking like:

wood grain look on what? if ur referring to the black spark plug cover, it's not a wood grain look, it's bc/cc black i guess the reflections it's giving off make it look like wood grain

I bought two cans of these. It works awesome!

So do I throw the painted VC in the oven when its still wet? or do I let it naturally dry first then throw it in?

only red and black. you could do wrinkle black, then go over it again with silver with light coats after the black is completely dry and wrinkled
