Can I paint a PMB Anodized Blue sparky end cap?
Posted July 17, 2012 - 05:54 PM
1. Is it possible to remove the tip from the blue anodized part? I've looked at it and it appears to be pressed in maybe???
2. If I can seperate the tip, how do I go about painting the blue anodized part? I've heard to use etching primer before painting it. I've also heard that if it a has a clear protective finish that it won't work. I'm assuming this has a finish although I really don't know.

The insert comes off the endcap. It just had some silicone in it making it hard to remove. I ended up using my bench grinder brush wheel to remove all the blue anodizing. So it looks like raw aluminum. Now I don't have to worry about the finish or any process. Just prime and paint.
Any tips on a primer or good brand of Hi Temp paint?

Etching Primer and Hi Temp flat black.
This after I primed it. It looked like Army O.D. Green.
This is after I painted it and mounted back on silencer.
I'm happy with it. That almost Aqua like blue was hedious. Looked skanky. I think it looks way better. Now I'm going to take it back off and follow the instructions on the Hi Temp can to bake in oven at 250 degrees for 30 min, let cool for 30 min, bake at 400 for 30 mins, let cool for 30 mins, bake at 600 for 30 mins, let cool.
