Default Refinish Weber Kettle Lid

I found an old Weber to be used for my UDS. It is safe to say it has been neglected. It is missing a handle, has rust spots and turned gray. I can fabricate a new handle. Just wondering what I can do about the gray color. Is there anything I can do to get the original black color back? I think I'm destined to paint the whole lid.

Yup you are going to repaint that puppy! Sand off what you can of the cr*p and then use a high temp paint from your auto parts store. I use the 550 degree paint which is available in gloss black. Really light coats to begin. Dries really fast. Needs 3 coats. Shouldn't take you 30 minutes.

Ok... so, what about repairing a blue Weber lid, with a couple of large chips??

most hardware store will have high temp stuff in the 1200-1500 deg range.

It cost more than the 550 stuff. The lid will not get close to that temp.

Same process, but use blue paint. It will probably be Ford blue so you may have to do the bottom also.
