how do I paint the steel line cover for the HVAC lines that were run
exteriorly? Prime with kilz? then paint? is it "less" obvious against a
stucco wall if I stucco it and if so - HOW?
Live in a HOA and need to make it less obvious. ;-\
As a chauffeur/gopher/stenographer/special projects manager for the boss, an
electrical contractor, I rubbed down galvanized parking lot light poles
with white vinegar before brush painting them with colored enamel paint.
I've aged and grown wiser and know now that we acid etched that galv before
painting. Those poles lasted many years and still play their part lighting
up a new car dealers shiny products but imagine they have been painted a few
times since then which was back in the late 60's.

They sell special primer for unpainted zinc surfaces. If your lines are
galv. then this will work. Lines should be degreased/cleaned first. I use
thinner followed by Fantastic or 409. Vinegar also works, I hear.
Final coat should be any good qual. exterior enamel suited for metal, and
roughly matching the background colors.
