Sounds like a good idea.
Don't have a sand blaster but I'm sure I can sand it, spray it with the high temp paint I used for the body & then brush on some high temp enamel.
In fact I will do this tonight, it should dry quickly enough. Might even add some color like a red in there, just for the heck of it..
Thanks for the tip..
You're welcome. It doesn't get hot in the hopper, so you don't have to use high temp enamel. If you have an air compressor already, dip tube sand blasters are pretty cheap ($10-$15) at home depot. Pick up a bag of blasting sand and you're good to go.

I was thinking on spraying a light coat of used motor oil in it.
No, I don't. Don't use used motor oil because it smells bad both during the summer and then in the fall when it burns off. There are a lot of threads about off season/summer storage. What I did that worked the best was to clean it thoroughly, then put a lamp inside with an incandescent bulb for a heat source.
