Simple to install with a split top, the 25mm (10753) and 32mm (10754) can be nested to fully cover connectors, near engine manifolds, turbo’s and their heat sources.

This all-inclusive and user-friendly system consists of KBS Klean to clean surfaces, RustBlast to remove rust and corrosion, and Motor Coater, which is a durable engine enamel that has deep and rich pigment for excellent coverage.
