    Looking good, what are you using for paint? Will it hold up to the heat?

    Engine enamel will not hold up at grill temperatures. POR-15 is great quality stuff and the price reflects that. if you are on a budget, you can get bbq grill paint at most hardware stores in the paint dept. It is affordable and is designed to hold up to the heat of a grill.
