Default Re: Penn 704z

I have a handle i bought last year and used a few times. No scratches. Was gonna put it up for bid. The emblem is glued on. Flat head should pop it out, a little heat from a hair dryer might help. You need to remove it before painting. There's a 2 part epoxy(home depot) that can be applied to bare metal. You can use that to fill it in and sand even.

Rj, could i buy that handle off ya?

Now for paint, I do not want to pay for powdercoating...

So my plan is..Sand w/400g, apply rustoleum self etching primer, from here i'm stumped at what paint to use...I was thinking mabey rustoleum truck bed coating spray? Or rustoleum BBQ and stove? Or just normal textured rustoleum metal paint followed by rustoleum rattle can clear.

Sure. I wouldn't use truck bed coating or undercoat paint on the reels. Normal urethane metal paint applied with very thin coats would be best. Use 800grit sandpaper when wetsanding in between coats. I also wait 48 hrs in between coats.

Keep in mind once the paint is dry, it still has to cure and harden. I would wait at least a week before reassembly. She looks good though!

Btw- paint that handle.

If you look at the tip of thread you'll see a flange. They did that so the screw won't fall off if it gets loose. Put some tape on the screw and force it off with a pair of pliers. A little force is all that's needed, once it gives it'll come off. When your done painting it, put it back and bend the flange back down with a flat head. Not too much, just enough to retain the screw in case it gets loose.

well i have begun the process of stripping the spool along with the rest of the reel and was disappointed to find out that the side plate is not metal because i really wanted this reel to be silver. guess i'm gonna leave it black unless i can find a 704 greenie side plate to put on. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Metal sideplates come up on E-bay. About $10. Search for Penn 704/706 or under Penn parts.

All depends on what size you want. You can always make them bigger, you can never make them smaller!
