In this thread: Aaaaargh! Why did I join this forum? I reported the acquisition of a Vapalux 300X. Well, it is very nearly sorted so the before and after shots are below. I know someone will point out the (incorrect) replacement hood top, but that is a temporary feature until I work out the best way of saving the original. It is of course stove enameled but rough, so I propose to abrade it to provide a key then spray it with VHT exhaust paint. Has anyone tried this? If so what was the outcome?
