I disassembled a 9000g to give it a thorough cleaning. In the process quite a bit of red paint came off the base and turret. I need to paint both pieces. How is the best way to remove and replace the black sheet metal part that is riveted to the base?
Thanks,
Wayne

Drill out the rivets ...and rerivit when reassembling. ...or find some nice little pan head machine screws and screw it back on. Pretty simple either way.

Be sure the rivets or the screws fill the hole they go in (side to side), for proper reallignment.

Be careful doing the Powder Coating. If you do not carefully mask/plug certain areas you will hate yourself. Powder Coating adds alot more thickness to parts than a cheap rattlecan job. If not careful you will be retapping holes, drilling out others and grinding Powder Coat off other areas just to get it to function properly again. Trust me. Been there done that. It can be done and work great, just be sure you do it right.

I did the powder coat. A good coater will plug holes especially if they are threaded. I went through with a drill bit and cleaned all the holes. It looks brand new and functions very well. I say powder coat much better than rattle can.

I would think powder coating would be expensive. About what should it cost?

Thanks,

Send it to MEC and have them rebuild it, they have a great service dept. I live nearby and have made an appointment, and they rebuilt mine (minus paint) in 1/2 hour.
