    Prep for powder coat

    I want to get my door handles powder coated on my 100e. Once Crome has been stripped how do I fill any pitting that might be hiding under there?

    The guy who does mine says he grit blast the chrome off parts but its a bitch. Best you talk to the guy whos doing the coating. As for filling it has to withstand a fairly high temperature so, no normal fillers cant cope. Would have to be metal (there is one 'plastic filler than can just about cope but its fearfully expensive) but not soft solder. Looking at silver solder up.

    There is a process called resin coat which hides pits etc. Go see a good stove enamel shop

    What about using belzona to fill the pits?? I have no experience of what your asking but belzona is metallic filler for high temperatures and strong as steel
