    Wrinkle painting cans.

    Can anyone help with the procedure on painting their cans with wrinkle paint?
    Have a rough idea, just want to make sure I get it right.

    Do you place a slug into the setup so paint doesn’t get on the face of the mags or do you just paint it and run a hone through it to get rid of the paint.

    When I used wrinkle paint years ago, I painted the cans before I glued in the magnets. I made a balsa plug to fit the cans that kept out paint & was something to hold on to. You could stuff yours with something soft & pliable, such as cotton balls, foam rubber weatherstripping, or tissues, to keep the paint out.
    I like long walks, especially when they're taken by people who annoy me.

    Read the directions on the can.

    Raisin Garrett paints so well he could never get wrinkle finish to wrinkle.

    If you solder the motors in frames, be sure to tin those area before painting and masking them before painting.

    I put my painted motor cans in a warm oven (250 F) for 5-10 minutes. This would enhance the Cal Custom wrinkle paint I was using to wrinkle more.

    Two coats in opposite directions. Oven it at 250 degrees F for 10 minutes. Let cool.

    The same is true for soldered bushings & bearings. I've done it afterwards too, but it's more work.
