Degrease and Sand Before Painting
Spread degreaser inside the cover and burner area and
over the entire exterior. Then scrub the entire grill with a
brush. Make sure you remove grease from all the crevices. If you have
a power washer, soak the grill with
degreaser and then blast off the grease
and loose paint. Rinse it with water and
let it dry in the sun.
Sand pitted and corroded areas with 80-grit sandpaper.
Use a wire brush in the crevices to remove surface rust and
chipping paint. Then switch to 120-grit sandpaper and sand
the entire grill and cart.
