Dump a pint of 1200F paint in a clean 1 gal empty can. ( any auto paint supply can provide you one ) mix that with 1 quart rust-oleuim. And your pit paint job will last for about 5 years. Satin finish is what works for me. If you go nutty and pour the heat to it it will have a trendily to not wear at all.It just will burn off. I know the big buck pit builders do there best and I love the shine, But, Low and slow keeps me in line and a lot is avoided. Chrome don't get ya home, And neither does a fancy paint job!
The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that,
you've got it made. -Groucho Marx (1890-1977)
