Primer /paint combo for pedals & dash braces

Hi,

I am in the process of sandblasting the pedals and dash braces from my '66 Malibu and wanted to know what primer / paint combo you guys have used with good results? My interior is black. I was hoping that whatever I use can be used elsewhere like under hood brackets, bumper brackets ect..

Thanks for the help!

If you want to use something that will last forever I'd suggest POR-15 . It'll cost a few bucks but it goes on with a brush, flows out very nicely and is bullet proof. If you just want to paint them then Eastwood makes the correct chassis black for your vehicle.

Look at Harbor Freight they have a powder coat unit for 49 or 59 bucks and I have been told it works great. For brackets and such it is the best thing IMO.

I though POR was for using when rust is present? I've sandblasted the parts & didn't think POR was needed at this point. I've read other posts where people have had trouble painting parts like these without the proper primer underneath. Powdercoating everyything would be great but I'm wondering if it's overkill for these types of parts?

Thanks again for any opinions!

Walmart .99¢ take ur pick flat black or shiney black. If it's gonna be inside and relatively dry I'd just use some rattle can black. Don't spring for any mail order expensive stuff. And the great part is you can always tape up and repaint anytime.

POR is for when rust is present or to protect it from getting rusted again.

I wouldn't even consider anything but powder coating for these easily scratched parts. On second thought, I wouldn't consider anything but powder coating for everything on the car except the sheet metal!! I go to a local shop instead of doing it myself 'cause the coating process isn't too bad but all that sand blasting - yuch!

I use Krylon Semi-Flat Black for a lot of underhood parts and fenderwells. It gives that dull sheen. Unlike Rustoleum stuff, you can recoat at any time.
I thought the Eastwood product was way too glossy
