Not a welding project I know, but I figured you fellows could set me straight in short order. I have a few small stainless brackets that I'd like to paint. Is there any special prep / paint that I need to be using for this ?
Should I blast or etch the metal beforehand and use a primer, or will a standard old rustoleum paint work out of the can?
just cleaning it with a good solvent should work fine. but if you really want to do a nice job, i would recommend blasting it, then use etch primer, then carry on with your choice of paint. if you want to spend that much time on it, but it would hold up nicely though.
