My Maxwellwindlass is losing its powder-coat in big flakes. It appears to be aluminum underneath. Is there anything special that I need to do to re-paint it, besides prep and cleaning? Any recommended paints or epoxies?
Why not bare aluminum! Otherwise acid wash and zinc chromate primer. Be careful though, not all ZC primers are compatible with certain overcoats! Don't ask how I know but a custom windlass support of mine seemed to stay rubbery and tacky for years!
