Question 68 Safari stove top

What is the best way to clean this stove top? Wire wheel? Steel wool? Does anyone have one for sale? I want to keep the original wood grain look stove, because it matches the fridge? This is my first attachment, so I hope it works.

Amy, the rust is too deep to get all the way out. You can clean most of it off with a Brillo pad, coat it with POR-15, and paint it with heat-resistant paint. Once rust gets through the chromey coating, there's not much else to do besides live with it, paint it, or replace it.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Stove Top

We had a similar problem with the stove top in our '71 Safari. I had a local shop powder coat it in silver. Looks good and has held up well. Cost was about $50. They said that they could do any color.

Thanks guys! Didn't know there were so many options. Just put a new stove in the 74 Argosy. Saved the old one. May bring it back to life on the next restoration. Has anyone tried the "high heat" spray paints? What type of shop does the powder coat?
