Painting Hitch

The hitch needs some care on my Scamp 13. Is there a better spray paint to use or would Rustolium work ok? Was the factory paint flat or gloss?

I just bought a 13' 1989 Scamp a couple weeks ago and had to repaint the frame. It was mostly rust and I used Rustolem Rust Reformer and then top coated that with Stops Rust enamel. I did mine Silver to match my truck, but I think gloss black is the original.

I bought my Scamp 16'SD in 2009 and the tongue is gloss.

I use Rustoleum periodically on the tongue of my Scamp. I like gloss better than flat. In fact, I paint everything on the tongue black except for the generator box. I carry a can of Rustoleum for touch especially when I'm at a gathering.

Try POR 15. That stuff looks awesome and is bulletproof.

A bit spendy, but worth it.

I'll second the vote for POR 15. It's great stuff and I used it on my frame when I had it out. One thing to keep in mind with it though is that it's not UV resistant so, especially on the tongue, you still have to put some kind of topcoat over it.

I copied this from their site..."BLACKCOTE is not sensitive to ultra-violet light and may be exposed to sunlight without damaging consequences."

Does this mean it is protected form the ultra-violet light?

That's correct. You would use this over the POR 15 coat to protect it from UV. It looks like you can also use it as a topcoat on it's own without first using POR 15 but I don't know whether that would be any better than just using something like rustoleum.
