If i headed it getting rid of unwanted paint no cunt would have looked in. Knowing my seedy rep i figured the dirtbags would surf in looking for grimy flange but leave some helpful viz stylee tips. I will post a open flap shot of my sisters growler if someone comes up with a less stinky solution to nitromors
Nitromors. Do it on Friday night with the windows and doors closed. You'll save a heap of beer tokens and get the same effect as a night on the lash. Even down to the splitting headache when you wake up.
If you wake up.
PS Don't buy the radiator enamel until Saturday. It'd be a shame to have forked out for the paint if you don't wake up.
Easiest option is to just buy a new one and fit it.
After you have fucked about purchasing nitromoors and various sand or ally oxide paper you will have spent almost as much money and wasted many days of your life you will never get back.
Measure your rad, get one the same size in a single or double, compression joints are easy, you can get flexable connectors as well if the new one doesnt quite match up with the old, you should have an isolator valve somewhere near to the rad that's turned off with a flat blade screw driver so it doesn't wee all over the floor like a fat lad on the second show parade of the evening.
There are lots of placed that could sandblast it for a fee. However if it is a steam radiator with union fittings the fittings are ground to each other so remove the fittings before the sandblasting as if the union surfaces are damaged it will leak. Union fittings are dear too.
