Drum Question: the next thing I need to do is to sand the remaining paint off the drum. After I do this what should I do? Doesn't it need to be sealed in some way to keep it from rusting?
High heat paint? a sealer of some type? any help with this would be appreciated...

you can use high temp engine enamel or bbq grill paint. or you can season it like a cast iorn skillet for that rustic look

im planning on high temp engine enamel in blanc for my indoor rmh

Brian hall: yeah. You're right. Good old black BBQ paint will do the job.
 
Yeast devil! Back to the oven that baked you! And take this tiny ad too:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
