Hi folks.

I'm planning to paint the tank on my 0 64 426D Tank.  I've seen other members who have stripped it with paint remover, others that have sanded them.  Is there a preferred method?  The tank has no rust but the original paint has rubbed off in more than a few areas.

I plan to continue using the stove as it has given the family continuous service since we purchased it new. 

Cheers,

W. D. Beaumont

On a tank...I just use a stripper and a scotchbrite pad and maybe a tooth brush on the hard to reach parts.  Jasco works great, wear gloves.  That color strips very easily, if it's an original copper color.  Either way will work well for you.  Stripper and a toothbrush or small stainless brush will get into the hard to get places better than a sand paper.  Others opinions may vary.  Doug

Welcome to the forum!

Due to the contours and tight spots on these, I would go right to a chemical stripper and see how it goes. Take some pics and show us what you come up with.

Great, thanks for the advice.  I'll go with the paint stripper.  I'm gonna jump on it after I paint my 220F.

Holmfirth,

What kind/color is the paint that you used?  Is this the same color used on 200A lanterns?

Thank you,
JCB

Wow, that turned out great. Out of curiosity, did you clear coat?

Thanks for all the kind words.

To answer the question about what paint I used.  I used the Rustoleum Bare Metal Primer (white) and the color is Rustoleum Sunrise Red #7762.  I'm not sure if this color is used on 200A's.

Two coats of primer then baked in the gas grill at 180 for 20 minutes.  Wet sand afterwards. I also used a tack rag.

Two coats of the red, baked in the gas grill at 180 for about 30 minutes.

No clear coat.  After curing for a few days, I put on Meguiars wax.

I'm now working on the stove case.
