Question Painting interior grill of suburban furnace

Hi all,

I just have a quick question. I would like to paint the grill of the furnace.
My wife and I are having a debate. I seem to believe that if you paint it will smell up the trailer when you use the furnace. I seem to recall some similar posts but can not seem to locate them.
We are nearing the finishing point of the project and was hoping for a little help with this dilema.

Thank you in advance

Brian

Brian,
Would probably smell first, second time you fire up furnace, but after that shouldnt...paint it with a high temp auto or appliance paint

I took the inner and outer to the local powder coat place... if you are OK with a color they already run, it's cheep and lasts forever. I need to take my stovetop in now.

How much of the stovetop needs to be heat resistant too? Just repainted mine with the paint that dries to the "hammered metal" finish. It was the best choice since mine was chromed originally and was pitted with rust.

Chrome, regular spray paint and even some low-temp powder coatings will burn off or turn colors around the burner openings when exposed to heat. Have you ever seen a chrome tailpipe... turns purple/blueish. I'd either paint with high-temp barbeque paint or paint used on engine blocks. YMMV
