I have used this product before and it works well. It will make a clean edge when striping tape is used to outline the area.

Superior Product: I applied it to the entire rear bumper (blue) cover of a 2001 Eurovan to match the black swing arm and box/bike carrier. I sanded it with 80 grit paper and applied 2 coats 48 hours apart. The result is perfect in every way. Then I sprayed thin coat of clear satin lacquer to minimize indication of abrasion. Finished, it looks like a black vinyl and one quart cost $45 landed versus $850 to paint the number.

Great product, easy to use. I brushed it on. It is very important to stir it very often, the grit settles faster than ya would expect. When the grit starts to settle the brush gets more paint than grit. Just dip the brush approx 1 inch, dab and brush small areas, stir repeat.

Very good product and easy to apply , just make sure you DON’T use a brush as directed, it’s messy and doesn’t spread product evenly (tends to lump if too much paint applied ) . Save your money and buy a cheap paint kit at Walmart (small roller handle, roller , and small pan) and roll away, and you will be done in less than 20 minutes per coat. Wait 24 hours between coats. The hardest part is mixing the product, all the grit settles at the bottom and it takes a lot of stirring effect to get it all mixed together. I did it by hand but I’d recommend a mixing tool with a power drill to save time!!!

Takes time to finish cure. Dont step on it for a few days. Be sure to put on in thin even coats. Let dry several hours between coats. Dont continue to brush once applied or it can lump and smear. If this happens. Scape off clean up and start over. You will only do this once. Looks very nice when finished

Q: How much Toluene per quart of Randolph wing walk compound do I need? Or is it mostly for prep and clean up?

The wing walk compound is ready to use out of the can, but it can be thinned 5 to 1 with Toluene if the application requires it.

Q: Regarding the Randolph Wing Walk Compound: Is it necessary to remove the old wing walk paint or should I just wipe clean with solvent and apply paint?

It can be used over itself, as long |as the surface is cleaned properly and there is no contamination.

Q: How many square feet does one gallon of the Randolph Wing Walk Compound cover?

It depends on how thick the coats you use are, but a general guide would be one unthinned gallon covers approximately 150 square feet with one coat.

Q: What is the temperature range for applying Randolphs wing walk?

It can be applied at any temperature. The vapors will hang around and stink up the place when the temperature is below 65 degrees F and the lower the temperature the longer it takes to dry. 65-90 degrees F is optimum.

Q: What product do you recommend to use for cleaning/prepping a surface with pre-existing walk compound?

To clean and prep a pre-existing walk compound you will just need to dust it off and clean with soap and water. If you wanted to remove the walk compound, you will then need to heat it up and physically scrape it off.

Q: Will this Randolph Wing Walk adhere well to bare steel, such as the step on my 170, or does it require a primer?

Primer would be best, but not required.

Q: Is Wing walk waterproof? Is it effected by moisture?

It is oil based so it is pretty waterproof when dry.

Q: Is there a shelf life for the X1567 Wing Walk?

Yes, the shelf life is two years from the date of manufacture.

Q: How long does it take to dry and completely be able to walk on?

Per the Ceconite How To Manual, it dries overnight, can be walked on after 24 hours, but suggests using caution the first week, it will be a little tacky.

Q: Can it be applied in direct sun when the plane surface might be 150-180F or best apply on a shady day or hangar?

Per Randolph: For best results, apply in a controlled environment.
