correct paint? 2inch Burrell

Post  Mike King on Thu 19 Feb 2015, 7:08 am

Hi,
In the next couple of months i will be receiving the smokebox etc, although by reading the tips on the forum i realise that high temp paint direct onto the metal, then cooked in the oven. My query is with the smokebox door. With the brass having to have a etch primer, then i am assuming a high temp paint, then cooked. Will the etch primer be ok with this? Or have i misunderstood? Any advice appreciated.

Hi Mike

I sprayed the smoke box door in its separate components, baked in the oven for a few hours then assembled. The brass parts were painted separately and then fitted, with the screws being touched up after assembly.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Simon,
Am i right in assuming then that the brass plate doesnt get as hot as the rest of it?

If you're intending to do the name ring black & high light the lettering then go straight on with the high temp paint, you don't need to etch prime the brass!!
