Default Re: Re-spraying record decks.

I'd endorse the recommendation to use high temprature paint for spraying aluminium. After some experimentation with various paints I stripped and sprayed the Roberts R505 grille shown in the attached photo with PlastiKote Wood Stove. It needed baking to harden the paint but the outcome is close to the original satin finish and the paint adheres really well. The fact that it initially dries soft, but with good adhesion, also helps greatly when peeling off the modellers' masking tape.
