Thanks alot Springfield , you suck !!!!!
However I did call a guy that does duracoat today but he isnt 100% sure it will adhere well to the bare melonited metal and thinks it may not be very long lasting either under the circumstances . Oh well Ace Hareware here I come and if she gets beat up I will give her another coat of flat love .
