    Prop paints and prep

    Group,

    I have two white stripes on the end of my metal prop. I would like to
    change them to red. Is there anything off the auto shelf in paints
    that can be used? Are these epoxy paints. I also would like to shine
    up the prop..........is there a way to do that.

    Thanks

    Al

    Prop paints and prep

    Ironic you mention this when you did. My son and I got back from the
    beach last night after flying through rain and our prop tips got
    stripped. Here's the url for the Hartzell page on prop mx and it
    includes a section about repainting the tips:

    I've used everything from cheap Krylon to epoxies on props and rotor
    blades over the years. The epoxies definitely last better, but even
    the ones claiming to be just (more expense) for props erode. There
    are some strippers that are friendly to aluminum from Home Depot which
    work, and some that have to be totally avoided. I seem to have
    settled on stripping by wrapping paper towels on the painted tip,
    soaking them with MEK, wrapping tightly with aluminum foil and tape,
    then doing something else for a couple of hours. I use a plastic
    scraper, some more MEK, and scotchbrite to get the last paint residue
    off. Alodine. I'll repaint with most any epoxy paint.
