Can I just sand rough up the original paint then use a primer and a high heat paint or will the original with sanding peel.
Unless existing paint is high temp paint, even a small burn will scorch/peel it in at least some places. You just as well count on removing it all and then repaint according to the high temps mfg directions. The kind I used recommended against using any primer.
