Thread: Painting a SC

  1. #1

    Painting a SC

    My SC housing has lost a bit of its luster... some paint has come off and there is some surface corrosion where the paint used to be.

    I was just going to wire brush it and use a high heat paint from an auto parts store to touch it up. It does not need to be pretty - just needs a protective coating for corrosion resistance.

    Anyone else do this? Any advice?

    I plan on shipping it to Jerry for a rebuild - does he paint?

    Use a wire wheel on a drill to clean it up. Spray it down with some brake cleaner and then hit it with some high temp engine paint and you'll be good to go

    Remember black radiates heat better.

    I took it to work knocked of the loose stuff with a needle gun then sand blasted it to clean it up and rough up the remaining finish. After I get it back from Jerry I intend to paint it green with high temp engine paint in honor of the Green Hulk. There are a couple high temp greens available but no neon... that would sharpen up the compartment.
