Default Lang 84 restoration!

Well I posted on another thread that I was looking for paint to restore a Lang 84 Deluxe that a buddy and I picked up for a business venture. I said I'd reply back to let everyone know how the paint did and I can't find the thread. So here goes... We picked this cooker up in sad shape and cleaned everything thoroughly, got a lot of the rust and all the gunk out with a brush burner. We had the rest sandblasted, sprayed a cleaner to get any residue or oil off, and hit it with 11 cans of 2000* Rustoleum over 2 days. It turned out beautiful, and still under $2500 when all was said and done. Cooked 2 racks of spares, a rack of beef ribs and a chicken on it Tuesday and loved the way everything turned out. Here are the pics everyone wants to see. So far I highly recommend the 2000* Rustoleum. I picked it up at Autozone as an engine paint, and was unable to find anything past 500* at Lowe's. Enjoy.

That was after 6 cans. Got all the other spots since. Will post the pics of the cook in a day or two. They're on a friends camera.

Now that's what I call a restoration, very nice indeed. Did you hire someone to do the blasting or did you do it yourself?

Great job!

Hint. Everytime ya fire her up, give it a light coat of Crisco and you'll NEVER see rust again.
