    I'm interested in finding out where I can get a high temp paint match for my 3 stoves. I'm in the process of using my electrolysis tank to strip the rust and paint off. Any information is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Ford Cosmos Blue is close match to the factory original. You're probably not going to find a close match in high heat. High heat paint is not necessary for those cases as they don't get very hot.

    I line the bottom of mine with a sheet of thin aluminum cut from a beer can to help protect the paint.

    The original stoves did not have high temperature paint, though high temperature paint is a good idea.

    Nice, I'll check it out. I may try using a gun blueing kit to see how that looks but can paint it if I don't like it.
