hey guys just bought me some used ceramic lt bbk's and Hpipe i had to remove some dents so now there are some spots where the coating is missing plus there is serfuse rust on some other areas (very light) so i wanted to paint them black...

i just dont know how to go about prepping them i dont want to remove all the factory ceramic coating i bought some 1200 deg black paint i will do just about anything but send them out!:D

I have acsess to a sand blaster, and some new pressurized soapy water wash think i have never used or seen any one use. ill prep them for a few hours as long as it lasts that the key here.... i will hand wet sand them if thats what it takes but what grits of bads/media and witch solvents?
Thanks!

this is how i prep them,,sandblast them...then wash them with thinner real good..hang them up wash them with thinner again.but do not touch them .theres oil in your skin..1st light coat of paint leave them set about half hour..then paint the **** out of them.leave them set for least a week..

it'll cost you a bit more, but you could always take them someplace to get sandblasted and ceramic coated or flame sprayed. i bought a set of HTS coated Mac's and i took them out to get sand blasted and flame sprayed. cost me 175...
