Title: What paint for a stem re-spray?
Post by: Dusty on May 11, 2020, 10:34:18 PM
Evening all. My Safari upper shaft wasn't looking great so I got busy with the paint stripper.

Was wondering if anyone has any recommendations on what primer/paint to use for the re-spray?

Cheers. Stay safe...

That did cross my mind Val but wanted to put it out there just in case there was a specific type of paint available, hard wearing and all.

Sounds like a logical choice. As far as I can remember the top part of the Safari is metal. So either car paint or Hammerite.

Good luck with it.

Used car paint a few times works fine

Yeah, looks like some etch primer and car paint. I'm sure that'll do the trick.
