The stove on my 82 Scamp looked pretty sad,so I got some high temp spray paint and primer,and even the only color available was black,it does look rather "spiffy".

I looked but couldn't find an old thread I recall about a remodel job where the person had taken the stove to a professional appliance refinisher. She wanted some custom colour, as I recall.

It was either re-enameled or powdercoated, I don' know, but was pretty nice.

I don't recall that the price made me cringe either.

Thanks Dave. Was it the lady that had "brown" and now it's all turquoise? I remember that on a non-fiberglass site. Thanks and if you find the one you're thinking a out please let me know. Dont knock yourself out but if you "happen across" it. Please do. Cheers

Powder coating? There's this: Stove Top Replacement and DARN it! Should have followed MY instincts

and don't ask me how old i am that i still use words like "spiffy"
@john, "spiffy" never goes out of style!!

@jimbo... if you ever replace this sink, shoot me a PM! I'd dig a vintage sink.

My Uncle owns a powder coating company & did our frame, stove & sink, vents etc. & although I am definitely biased powder coating worked out well.

We could have gotten identical pea green but opted for a slightly updated shade & they hold up extremely well. Ours was all done free and he wouldn't tell me the cost, but, I believe it's really reasonable for the quality. The bonus is that a bigger powder coating company can match any colour. The coating lasts for a very long time, so it ends up being worth it. My two cents! Good luck

I know powder coating is good on frames etc and I love the effect. So it's good on the sinks and hi heat situations too?

I don't know the specifics (but can ask) of how high they cook the paint but it is very high temp, so it holds up well. We didn't coat the actual elements for the stove as the paint doesn't stand up well to that type of direct high heat (my uncle said depending on use they would need to be recoated in a year & suggested ?high heat engine enamel) just the face plate pictured & the tray it sits in.

We haven't actually used our stove yet, but my uncle had done various stoves (camping & home use) & other high heat applications regularly ....and he would tell me if it wasn't recommended because our families sometimes camp together & he wouldn't want to hear me complain if it was deteriorating.

The sink holds up very well, I actually dropped a hammer from about 2ft on it yesterday with no damage, it can and will chip if you really try, but it is pretty tough. I'm sure it depends on the company & the brand of product they use, but the product my uncle uses has a resilience & adherence to it that I haven't seen in normal paint (not that I am an expert by any means...)

Our stove & sink were very deteriorated (rusted extensively) so he sandblasted them first & did his best (whatever that means, I haven't seen the process, just the facilities) to even out the finish. The only detraction from powdercoating is that i don't think you can't go thicker in some spots to deal with pitting. If you look closely at the picture you may be able to see the finish is a bit uneven on the sink near the drain & on the corners. He didn't end up coating over the enamel, but he did also mention in some cases they can and will go right over the existing enamel if it is the right type & the customers prefers.

Here's what I did with my stove

this is before


and this is the after where I took high temp silver paint and after dremeling all the rust off I painted it with rustoleum high temp paint. I cleaned the inside of the stove and then painted the tray where the dials are in black high temp paint. put some silver drip trays in and replace the sorta rusty grates but it looks pretty good I think. I'm thinking of repainting the grills as well but haven't gotten around to that as I suspect that it's gonna be too high temp.

Wow looks sharp.

I'm not sure about painting the grills though cuz they can be subjected to direct flame. Plus the pans sit on them

So you completely took off your hinged cover?

yes I took off the hinged cover but haven't decided if I will put it back on but I don't think so. I installed a toaster oven above the sink and stove in the middle so I am planning on putting a cutting board with legs over the stove that I can remove.

still planning on putting a couple computer fans over the stove in where I put that blue foam and may be painting the backsplash to look like brushed metal.

Can I diverge? How similar is a boler kitchen to a scamp? I just bought a 1980 scamp and it is lacking in storage. And NO drawers!

Is that a silverware drawer under your stove?

I want to put one in mine....
