Re: [hobbicast] BBQ Paint
- Go to a car shop and buy some VHT paint made for
exhaust headers. the outside of your furnace better
not get hotter than that or your losing too much heat.

- I found some at Halford's, I think it's got aluminiun particales in it
because it sparkles under lights but leaves a sort of dusty matt finish.
Anyway, it's good for 650 deg. C, the highest I could find. I don't think
the outside will get that hot but I'm not sure about the top when I'm using
it to melt iron. Around the vent I would expect to be getting close. Paint
doesn't like sticking to metal much even though it's for exhuast manifolds.
I'll paint the last strap for the door in a minute and when I'll get
back I'll start mortoring it together (The door) if my brother will give me
a hand. Then when it's door it'll be carefully manouvered to the oven where
I'll keep it warm at about 50 deg. C or so until I go to bed, when I'll put
it up to 90 - 110 deg. C. If it's looking better tommorow (Dry) I'll put it
up to 200 - 230 deg. C and bake it for a few hours to fully dry out.
Thanks for the help,
