    Looks great - well done!

    I like that color. Do you have the name /brand?

    Thanks to @MrAlexxx - I have a 505 as well. Its a powerhouse given its size with a great simmer!

    I used Brownells epoxy based paint.

    That was totally my inspiration for my rebuild, I found a couple pics of your 502 in a google search, I must say your stove came out fantastic, and I loved the dark earth paint especially.

    Thanks @Pathfinder88 ,

    I like your idea of using the truck bed liner on the base, the cerakote is not holding up as well as hoped.

    That’s surprising, I thought Cerakote was the toughest coating out there.
