    I would never paint my stove and ruin the patina of rust and scratches built up over many years of loving use. ;)

    Do you think this stove could use any paint?

    That will be Krooser's stove. He'll probably try to put wheels on it and run in the RumbleFest he's involved with:

    Hey Pete

    Did you paint the firebrick copper and sand inbetween?
    If so where did you get the paint? Did you use a brush for the mortar joints?

    Painted the whole thing the sand color, then taped off the mortar lines and painted the bricks.
    The brick panel is all one piece. Pic below prior to painting.

    Yep, exactly what Tink said above as for the procedure to paint it. I used Stove Bright.

    As for the tape, I bought a roll of auto body painter's striping tape (blue, 1/4" or 5/16"... I forget which) at local auto body supply house.

    Thanks guys, not bad for and hours work sanding and prepping and 6 bucks in stove paint. I'm happy with how it turned out. I do wanna try something with the air grills on top though. Something like Dexter Day did with his and paint the glass trim the same color.

    Just mask around the grills to make it rectangular. Leave about as much space on the edge as the width of one of the slats in the grill. Then using high temp paint, paint the edge and grills silver or gold. That would be cool?

    Well, you guys talked me into painting my firebox in the Astoria! Does look shabby after 3 seasons! Real Nasty!

    Prep is the hardest part!
    Just got some new Wire Wheels for the drill from the new Harbor Freight store in Hyannis!
    http://www.harborfreight.com/6-piece-wire-wheel-and-cup-brush-set-1341.html
    So maybe with some Acetone and Elbow greese and these wire wheels I can make the paint stick? :mad:

    Now I need some pin striping masking tape!

    Hello

    Still cleaning the firebox and firebrick panel. Got more emery cloth at Home Depot and picked up some 0.7" wide Rust-Oleum orange masking tape from AutoZone auto parts store. It seems to be the exact width of the mortar joint so it should work. The firebrick is still dirty so I have to clean it a few more times with Acetone or Firebrick cleaner which I also purchased from the local hearth shop.
