try getting the rad disconnected and drag the
sucker outside. You can hose it down or power wash it. Scrape it with a steel scraper, wash it
again, Scrape it again, wash it again, you get
the picture. Spray prime twice (remember to cover
the hole or holes at each end where it was connected to the indoor pipes). Spray insides
first. An average rad 34'' HIGH by 24 '' WIDE
will take FOUR cans of primer. Don't finish
coat till it's in the house re-installed. Don't
spray inside unless you have proper vents.
Use latex low-luster paint. Don't use Silver
paint.. it looks bad... When disconnecting the
pipes, be careful for any screens or washers in
the pipe, they have to go back! Getting them outside is the trick.. Get all the dirt out!
