I searched the forum but couldn't find anything on this.
I have a vintage Prest-O-Lite tank on my '14 with the raised "Prest-O-Lite" lettering. The tank is full of paint drips and gobs. I want to strip it and repaint it and I'm thinking of using a silver spray paint bomb.
What have you guys used?
Thanks again for your help.
I've used a wire brush on a 4.5 side grinder. I've been told the stainless brush is less likely to produce sparks.
Some welding supply stores still have those offset tanks and will exchange with you. We had one on our 13 T and installed a pressure dropping vale with a gauge to make it safe. The picture was taken on one of Frank Hoyles Arizona Shootouts.
I took my P-O-L tank outside well away from the buildings, sanded it a little, wiped it with thinner, and painted it with a spray can of Rust-O-Leum silver. It turned out nice.
I put mine in the media blast cabinet and media blasted it. Suprise! It is heavy -Copper plated and the original decal is still there and very nice.I 200 sanded tank and clear coated it.It looks great.
I used a wire wheel of a side grinder, then sanded it down a little before getting out a rattle can of chrome.
Decals are available.
Often the mounting brackets are copper plated.
