I need 6 new rubber feet for my latest project. Westinghouse tank feet are too small (I tried).  Thanks

She had a rough life. Had several coats of rattle can over rust so the original finish couldn't be saved. I bead blasted it then used 2" 3M red pads on a 90  degree air grinder to smooth the cast iron. High build primer (sanding between coats) then Aircraft polyurethane black with poly clear coat. It really is a going to be stunning when I finish it. Thanks

I never heard of aircraft polyurethane black paint. Can you tell me something about this paint?

I use paint from work, PPG Aerospace. Much like automotive paint, it has several parts ( hardener, thinner, kicker etc.). It is applied using an HVLP gun.

nice that you have that paint available.  30 years as body shop owner, and we didn't use it.  It is simply too tough and harder to work with than 2 stage clearcoat car paint.  Should last near forever and looks awesome
nice work, and a lot of it to make it look that good....cheers!  Randy

Sounds similar to Imrom, which is sold here for boat and aircraft use only. I used to use it a lot as it is bulletproof. In fact, there are several bikes here that I painted with it 20 years ago that look like there were painted last week.

Very toxic, though and special precautions were necessary.

I don't use it anymore because of that. No need, especially with a fan that lives indoors.

Cheers,
Bill

Bill, quite likely it is Imron basically.  I have used Imron  [many years past], and is hard as the sidewalk.  Won't sand well, and even aircraft stripper has a dickens of a time with it.  About as durable as you can get
