Hello I found a great working stove that really needs a paint job. A Quadrafire Santa Fe So this is what I do. Vacuum all the dirt and dust inside and out completely. Take all the panels apart and repaint them separately. 1. Use the wire brush for the drill to take off hard bubbling rust spots. 2. Use Emory cloth to sand it down smooth. 3. Use a rag wet with Acetone to clean the rust and oils. Note: This is an important step so the paint will take and not crack or wrinkle after it is sprayed on! I clean each spot 3 times lightly to assure all oils and dirt are gone. If you bear down too much the Acetone will remove all the paint. So be careful. Also a nice painter's tarp on the floor and masking tape on the window and other spots catch the over spray and make for an easier cleanup! Then I use Flame Proof 2,000 Degree flat black Header Paint from the auto parts store for the fire box. Stove Bright Satin Black (Or Matelic Black for the newer stoves) for the outside. Remember: This paint dries quick so 2 light coats are better than one heavy coat that has drips and runs! See pic below. What do you do?
