This particular touch up kit has a billet silver primer and the color bottle is a very transparent red. Of course, there are no instructions. I have seen some you tube videos but they all have the opaque color and a clear coat. I tested it on the back of a saddle bag that was rubbing on the frame (need to figure that one out). I put on the primer silver and let it dry, applied four coats of the color. It looks like transparent red with a dark silver under it. Am I supposed to mix these?
