They were willing to sandblast all the blower parts (not the motor). From there I took it right over to an autobody shop - by prior arrangements - and they primed it first , and then used an automotive laquer. Black. looks beautiful.   John V

So you might not want to do much sanding or other such activity unless you have good dust control and cleanup.   Richard Moyer           _________________________________________________________________ Add photos to your e-mail with MSN 8.

The 'original' paint on mine seemed to be flat black. I had the housing, front cover, and inlet tube sand blasted and then painted gloss black at the local auto body shop. Ended up costing more than I had hoped. I also had new feet made for it (that ended up thicker/wider than the originals, I don't think that will matter) I don't have it back together yet to tell you how well it works. That's a project for the coming months...   ---john.

I decided to go semi-gloss Rustoleum to make the imperfections less = apparent.   Richard Moyer     >Subject: Blower Paint Recommendation >From: <Kzimmer0817@aol.com> >Date: Wed, 22 Jan 2003 21:06:59 EST > >b.

I = wouldn't begin to paint my blower.....it works just fine, and most people will = never see it. Nor am I interested in making all the chests and pipes look brand new. They are old, and that's fine with me.   Dennis Steckley ______________________ "I wondered about taking the blower to a body shop for a coat of = automotive paint thinking that that would be much tougher."

Since I have trouble finishing projects (in both senses of the word) I had my blower professionally painted. And yes, as another respondent mentioned, the gloss paint does show all the dings and dents. So be it. At least it's clean again!   ---john.
