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 :censored: .

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?".:doh:

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.
