Refurbishing Stainless Stovetop

We were able to use 0000 steel wool to bring the cover back to almost new, but the sides and inside look less forgiving. Still new to this, but considered powder coating the insides black or "stainless"... Any suggestions? 

Head over to your local auto parts store and look for brake caliper paint. They claim its good to 900 degrees F. I saw some in silver and was going to do the underside of the stove cover after I got it cleaned up. Might work if your looking for a quick fix.

Thinking off the top of my head again,
Tom

I just used some Por15 metallic paint, and I think you will want to spray it- maybe thats obvious, but I'm kind of low tech. The metallic stuff in my paint came out of suspension easily and didn't go on evenly.

Can we see a picture of the before range top? I need to do the same to mine. Thanks!

If you choose not to powder coat there is this option also:

If you go with the powder coat, you might steer away from the *chrome* color. That's what I chose and when I picked it up, it was FREE. Seems that the owner (who was out of the shop for a few day) would never have suggested the chrome because of the surface imperfections on my cover --- causing the pigments to pool. It doesn’t look that bad, but it isn’t great either. Good luck - how about a pic of the top of your cover too so we can see how your polishing results!

I built a walk in powdercoat oven and used flat black stove paint from lowes. It has lasted forever. If you are going to coat it go with "jet hot" ceramic silver most other powders will fail that close to a flame

Laura, I'll snap one this weekend! Frame stiffeners should be done along with the floor on our '69... I'll post some photos of that too. Can't wait to see it...
