Update, since I am on the cheap the sanding is going to be minimal at best. The Makita disks are $5.00 for 3 and I have used 2 packs. Mostly worked on the rusted areas and tried to blend it all together.

I am not happy with the paint. Rust-Oleum hi temp satin. It is showing every imperfection and the coverage is not to good. It says primer not suggested which makes sense unless it was high temp too. Even with 2 coats it just does not look right.

I did use a primer on the cooking chamber door and it still looks blotchy. Not trying to win a beauty pageant, really just want to finish up and cook something.

I am thinking about doing a second (3rd) coat using normal BBQ flat, Do you think a flat will hide the blemishes better?

I know it is going to look like a used smoker before very long but would like to start with a solid baseline.

Also had a buddy that owns a tin shop do up a baffle for me, Free too.
