Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Hood Shelve paint

While I have my engine out my 1926 TuDor, I thought I'd spruce up some other items. My hood shelves always get battered up. The hood bangs on them and gasoline spills on them.



Originally I painted them with body paint, but that didn't last long at all. Later I used RustOleum and Valspar brush on paint. These seem to handle the mechanical abuse, but not the gasoline. The gas seems to bubble up the paint and then rust. I can, and may just repaint them with brush on paint, but is there a better way? I'd like to find something that is more gasoline resistant. Thanks Mike

I recently took mine off, cleaned them up and had them powder coated.

I powder coat that type of thing and the gas wont hurt the powder coating. Tim

Imron works too. You usually can get it in small quantities at your favorite local auto paint store.

Any good 2 part gloss black epoxy should give you the results you want. many decades ago, I used Imron on mine and they are just as shiney now as they were when I first painted them. Jim Patrick
