I have purchased a used set of seconds. They are currently painted "silver" all round. Paint is chipped and in generally poor condition. Is it okay to strip (chemical), prime and re-paint with rattle can Rustoleum "sliver? I know the pans need to be tuned and thought I would refinish before tuning. Any thoughts or ideas?
I have stripped off paint and i have also stripped off thermal tape using a heat gun. but i only did this on the skirt.. not the bowl.
I removed all of the paint from the skirts and bowls of the double second pans. The skirts are chromed and the bowls were chromed at one time. An interesting thing though, on the skirt was an engraving "Exodus 7A" on the left pan and "Exodus 7B" on the right pan. So, are these pans that were once part of the Trini Exodus Band?
Plan to polish the skirt chrome and then repaint the bowls with automotive primer and then bright silver Rustoleum rattle can. The pans are sort of in tune, but will need a good tuning after I finish polishing and painting.
On the Low C tenor I purchased I removed the paint. The pan was chromed, but pitted, but NO rust. I may polish the chrome as best I can, perhaps down to the nickle plate. On the side of the skirt was a serial number that starts with a 4. Could this be a Panyard Pan?
