You should find out what the paint manufacturer says about ideal application temperatures. Keep in mind that the item you are painting needs to be at that temperature too.

Otherwise, you may be wasting your time and money.

Good luck, and keep the progress posted!

My gut is that the temps you are expecting are a little low.. Check the can before you start. I'm guessing it should be in th mid 70's.

Dive is wise!! Always read the label, I think it would need to be at least above 40 degrees... otherwise it will just flake off real soon...

LOL! Naw, been looking forward to having one of these for a long time.

The low tonight is 13, tomorrow night 11. I may have to delay the sandblasting till next week, which is a bummer cause I was really looking forward to getting it fixed up over the weekend and making some smoke on Mon.

If so, maybe I'll just fire it up, brush the grates, and hit it with Pam in the meantime - and do some ribs!

Friend has a heated garage that he doesn't mind getting paint drips/overspray on, but can't use it till Sun. morning. Think it would be OK for a day and a half, covered with tarp, till we could paint?

Still scheming... :-)

It should clean up great with a little work. You will like it more knowing you restored it.

If you do paint in the garage be sure that it can remain in the garage for a few days. Just because the paint is dry doesn't mean it has cured and in these temps that is very important.

Blast it for $180, replace the things that need replaced. Then go to the dollar store and buy a dozen cans of cooking spray, spray everything heavy (inside and out) and start a fire and let her sweat. Tthen lube everything with your lube of choice, e.g., lard, bacon grease, peanut oil. You will be very happy when you finish. Post some more pics when you finish.

If you have additional time and energy you can add a roof system. Ben added one to our 84 when we ordered and it has helped big time in maintaining compared to our 60. Easy to raise and tows great! We dropped one side and used as a wind break for us and a couple of other teams during the big wind at Dover in 2007

Ralph,

I would use Rebar rod for the fire box grate instead of expanded metal, it will last trouble free for many years.

For the Bandera fire bin/basket, I used 1/2 inch diameter rebar spaced on 1 inch centers, which gives 1/2 inch gap between bars and that worked great for both charcoal and stick burning. It also gave longer burns because of the smaller gap than expanded metal.

For that bad boy you are rebuilding, I would guess that you will be using much hotter fires and a wider span than the Bandera, so I would use 3/4 inch diameter rebar spaced so that you still get a 1/2 inch gap between bars.

Below is the Bandera design I built and sold to Brethren on this site.

Nice score on the Lang! I will say "Ditto" on the Temperature, If the paint isn't dry and freezes it will be a waste of time.

Good luck on the restoration!

Put a space heater inside the smoker and close the doors. Wait at least a couple hours before painting. At ambient room temp it will take a loooong time for all that metal to warm up. Maybe even 2 space heaters, a hair dryer or heat gun. Good luck!
