You gotta PM swamprb. Maybe search his threads...

Actually, Krylon makes a good match in a Grill and BBQ paint, but it won't last. Been there, done that. Any paint you try is going to go dull on you quickly, and IMO, look worse than just living with a few blemishes.

I just keep my old redhead polished, and look at the blemishes as "battle-scars."

PM sent

But for those that are still wondering?? I use Dupli-Color Engine Enamel with Ceramic. It is rated at 500* #DE1653 RED

It will burn off the bottom of most kettles and turn black, but it covers the rust. I have never had an issues with it on any lids.





You must realize it is just a cosmetic repair and it will eventually discolor under heavy use. But it is the best color match I have found off the shelf.













Go RED or stay home!

YMMV

This may sound crazy, but I also remember a post here where someone used wax. Brought the shine back out.

I'll use rubbing compound or Mequiars Mirror Glaze and Sealer to shine them up as well.
