Had to have my org rad recored after looking like it lasted 40 year's, " it really looked all org " untill now. I dont understand what part of "DONT PAINT IT" that they didnt understand but now I've been stripping super high gloss black paint very carefully ... Tha yoyo even painted over a rusty area.

Would you fella's be so kind as to shoot me the correct paint color for the rad tank's ? This is the 69 3 core DZ set up.. Correct answer git the next colt or filly named after them .. :thumbsup:

Jerry M's 69 Z28 book (Appendix E) lists "full gloss black paint" as the correct finish for the radiator. Have to make sure you use actual radiator paint; needs to be "low build" so as not to restrict airflow.

I'm at the same point and will be painting on Thursday. I (thankfully) got mine back unpainted. I have the eastwood gloss paint but I was wondering...
Should I use etch primer on the tanks?
Generally you don't have to, as long as the end tanks are cleaned well prior to spraying, the rad. paint should stick just fine. I suggest using our PRE surface cleaner to get any containments off of the surface before you paint.
