    Default Prepping Provari for paint job

    So I have a satin Provari old body style that I want to paint. I want to keep the satin type of finish, and I want to make sure the paint is durable. Anyone have a how to guide to painting these things? Where to get the paint, how to prep the body, etc?

    In case your wondering all the views and no replies, I don't think anyone presently here has done a paint job themselves.

    We have a couple of owners of repainted ProVaris here and someone is going to send there in to have it done but otherwise...
    Feel free and step forward and tell us about the improved ProVari that you did.

    Look into Cerakote. It's going to involve some sanding, some disassembling & some voiding of the warranty. Can't say I'd recommend doing it, but it's your mod.

    I'm planning on using this to refinish one of mine:

    GUN-KOTE™ OVEN CURE, GUN FINISH | Brownells


    Brownells GUN-KOTE is a durable, second-generation epoxy, thermo-set resin finish that will not break down, peel or dissolve. In fact, once it’s applied, the only way to remove Brownells GUN-KOTE is to abrasive blast the part. It is resistant to all known gun solvents and thinners

    Instead of painting it, (which imo would just be a regret) have you thought about anodizing a fade or splash?

    I haven't been to Brownell's in a while. Spray on Cerakote... genius!

    You cannot anodize stainless steel.
