A/C shroud painting

Painting AC shroud. Can this be done? Color or process recommendations?

I asked something similar a few months ago.

Painting AC Shroud can be done. I used Plasti-Kote High Temp spray paint and love the outcome. I patched the holes in the shroud with fiberglass cloth and Gorilla Glue.

And please don't do as the PO or some idiot service tech did: Remove your shroud from the roof before painting. I have a cute outline of grey paint on my roof .

I did fail to mention the shroud removal. Great point!

And I bet when you brought that to their attention they probably acted surprised and said, "well nobody looks at your roof?".

We painted ours at the same time as the trailer ... but removed it from the roof anyway. (Otherwise there would be an ugly dirty-cream spot on the roof!)

We used PPG Automotive paints for the trailer and AC cover. Expensive but the results are astoundingly good.

Jack, I didn't realize it until this summer, when I started the replacement job on the AC. One year after purchase.
