I refurbished a few dead heaters and now I am wondering if any of you guys know what brand and color rattle can paint would be a close match for the stock gas heater casing color. They don't really get all that hot at the cover so I'm also curious if you could get away with the regular stuff, or would it have to be a high heat product also. Tried a 'search' but no joy....

Thanks,
Dave

heater doesnt´t get hot on the outside casing so you should be OK with a standard color. As to the color, I´ve seen gray and orange heaters in the Thing..

Duplicolor makes a good product and quite a few colors. I thought the heaters were a blah grey color. Good luck. Smile
