Paint it with ever paint floats you boat.What do you think is going to happen to it if you don't use "engine" paint.What do you guys use? I am looking for something in a dark red, but engine colors seem a bit limited.
If your smoker were water cooled the paint would have not burned off. Paint for non-water cooled exhaust manifolds would be a better comparison to a smoker. Regular ol spray paint does just fine on an engine block & heads.I assume non-high heat paint would blister. When I made my first smoker, the first thing I did was crank up the heat to burn the paint off and then put oven paint on it.
The hood of your car in the dead of summer gets twice as hot as the block and heats in your boat. Or you need to fix you boats cooling system.I assume non-high heat paint would blister. When I made my first smoker, the first thing I did was crank up the heat to burn the paint off and then put oven paint on it.
Yep..hammerite works good,and you can get different effects with air pressure and thinningHere's a couple options for ya tptools.com/engine-paint. I have not used these personally only looked for myself so far. I have used the original hammerite paint on engine blocks very successfully w/o primer on very clean block. It dries quickly and is very durable. They have many colors including a red. Good luck with your deal.
