I thought about that. But they come off pretty easily.

I wonder if you put a high temp primer and black coat that would be enough. The other option would be to get a auto paint. Might need a sprayer for that.

I don't think the high temp primer idea will work because the barrel will still get to hot for the paint. I'm hoping they may mix some high heat colors to paint exhaust manifolds.

If you find a place that sells templates for School or Pro teams let me know. I'm looking for a couple of teams .
I hadn't thought about it being a problem getting templates but a quick google didn't look promising?!? I got a friend that runs a body shop that does a lot of custom painting, guess I need to go by for a visit and ask a few questions. I'll let you know what I find out.

Guys, unless you run with the lid off you can use any spray paint. I have posted this somewhere before but this summer we check the temp of a barrel while it was cooking and a black car setting on the car lot, They were just a few degrees apart. The camo barrel I painted was just plain old spray paint. After several cooks the paint was fine.

The guy that reconditions them just uses an average paint in sprayers. Nothing special. I think I'm going to looking for a used paint sprayer in the future.

If you don't want to spend a lot, I use one of these HVLP, nice and compact.

Excellent! I figured as much. Now it's off to see what the hardware stor has on clearance. This thing could turn out some very silly colour.

Wow, thanks for the info. I had the impression that these things got really hot.

Sweet info, knowing that, maybe they can be painted team colors and marketed.

Pat:

The harbor freight unit says "Sprays light, medium and heavy stain, varnish, and latex."

The other unit mentions "metalworking" Rather vauge.

Spray painting cars usually entails pretty high flows and pressures.

So please enlighten me.

Jerry:

Here's 2 options:

1. get a spare barrel lid and a sawsall and make a ring out of the outside edge.

2. get a spare lid clamping ring and cut it to fit tight inside the barel top.

I would be very cautious about cutting the entire top roll off of the drum. I think it adds a lot to the structural stiffness of the drum. IMHO you are much better off using an angle grinder to grind down the roll until the Weber lid fits snugly. That is what I did on my second UDS.

Maybe someone who has cut the roll off will chime in...

Thanks Brent, I was a bit concerned about cutting off the roll for that very reason. Now I have to look into an angle grinder!

on mine my uncle just used 2 hammers like they do when forming metal on cars, place a sledge hammer on the inside of the drum at the lip and hit the outside of the lip up and in towards the sledge with the other hammer. That way you dont have to worry about sharp edges or uneven cutting. I will post pics on Friday when I get mine here.
