I notice that there is now a fair amount of rust on the inside of the drum - spotty. When I am finished with the painting, I will bring the drum up to 200 deg to cure the high temp paint. Then, I plan to raise them temp, and then spray inside with oil to season it.
Should I remove the light rust before seasoning?
Yes you should wire brush the inside to remove the rust before seasoning. Also wipe it down well before painting and seasoning, I like to use low odor mineral spirits.
