Different finish on a new Dynacorn part....

#1

:think: I finally am getting around to installing some new sheet metal in the engine compartment. Opened up the box containing my new radiator support and SUPRISE, its silver. I've never had a part with this finish on it so I figured i would refer to the knowledge base here on CCC for suggestions. I am wondering what anyone who has already dealt with this finish did with it.

Scuff it and paint with epoxy primer and underhood paint.

Strip it and compleetly re-paint it

Paint right over this coating

Any other options?

On another note, i want to thank Don and the crew at WCCC for checking the parts they have in stork prior to shipping them out. INitially when I ordered this part they checked and found that the manufacturer had mis-marked the box and put a 70 in a 69 box. Don and the guys figured it out and I waited for them to get the correct one in. You cant beat service like this!

Thanks again guys!

I've seen this finish on their parts before, I believe it's a weld-through primer. Mainly to protect the metal from corrosion and make it easy to weld in. I think you can paint right over it, but I'm sure others here have experience with it and can say for sure.

Send an e-mail to Dynacorn with that picture and ask what finish is on the part. That way you're not guessing what to do next.
