LMAO...well, this is my FIRST panel that was formally riveted to the chassis, paint and all. I used a 1500 degree high heat satin silver spray paint from the local hardware store...I was able to find some Zinc-Chromate primer at a local car parts store, so that is cool as well.

Don't think it turned out too badly!

Not too sure how it will WEAR, but so far so good.

Hold it David...

Yea Baby, Paint it all! Zinc-Chromate has been used on airplanes (and trucks) for over 50 years! As long as you prep it correctly, it will be fine. (Now I have to admit, if you just paint it without pickeling it, nope it won't last. There's been a lot of questions lately about clearing the aluminum.)

Also McMaster-Carr (www.mcmaster.com) has some nice silicone stainless steel in a can that is good up to 1500 degrees. I used it on my J-Pipes and it works like a champ.

Keep us posted on the progress Neill!
