Anyone done this? What kind of paint?
I'm considering buying a Single Rec. and painting the diamond plate black.

Some of the plates I see are more matte, but the blackface dual revision F that I had last year was glossy.

The Blackface Triple I have is sort of a Satin type finish. Somewhat shiny, but mostly matte.

I have heard about people getting their Chrome plates powder coated.

Thosse blackface/Silver pannel Rectos look KILLER! I remember hearing the older ones came like that, is that right?

I'd like to see a XXX with the treadplate, probably my least favourite thing about the XXXs is the aesthetics.

As for paint type, I'd go for a car paint, itll be thin and won't leave it completely matte, I have no experience with car paints/painting but I know there's a huge variety. I'm sure you can find thicker varieties of spray on paint that's more matte.

I assume you're buying a used Single Rec, otherwide you could order one custom with the black diamond. Another option is to carefully remove the old diamond plate which is secured with double sided tape. I hear you need to use a heat gun to melt the adhesive, but be careful as to not melt the Tolex. You can order a black plate from Mesa, supposedly for $100.

Make that $300. Just checked a thread on the boogie board from someone who called. I guess $100 was wishful/reasonable memory.

Thanks guys, I was considering getting it done by a local autobody shop. Might consider a special order from Mesa if it comes down to it.

Scuff it up with a scotch brite pad and hit it with some satin black Krylon. Put the other $290 in your pocket.

Update us with what you decide to do. I go back and forth if I want to paint my Dual rec F, mine has the polished plate with the chrome chassis and I like that, but the blackfaces do look killer.

Remove the logo, scuff it up with scotch brite, clean it with something to remove any grease, paint it. The best way to do it is remove the diamond plate using a heat gun to paint it, but you have to be real careful not to burn or melt the tolex. The diamond plate is held on with double sided tape.

^^^ This. Except use Rustoleum 2x semi gloss black. It'll look satin but wont take on the oils/fingerprints.

I once painted a road case with Rustoleum Hammered finish spray and it was pretty durable and the texture looked good.

It depends on the Revision, but the early Rectos have a matte finish (like my Rev. D), and the later 2-channel Rectos have a more glossy, plastic-like finish. I believed they made the change during Revision G.

Cool idea, but because it’s aluminum, it can’t be Parkerized, but it can be anodized. Anodizing should only cost no more than $60, and it durable. Just check out any AR-15/M16/M4 lower.

Don't forget that the plate is aluminum and they will need to use an etching primer or it'll just flake off.

Yeah I powder coated my Triple XXX. Trick was to let them do it when they had something black being done. They just put it in that run of stuff getting coated. Was like $30. Swapped the knobs and it looked pretty sick.

I was looking for a place I had bookmarked back when I had a wood shop. They had a ton of unique plate designs (including the material used on the uberschall metal plate), but I didn’t find it.

But these guys could probably get you what you need.

Use a ceramic enamel. If it is durable enough on my ls6 block you will be fine. Just properly prrp it right.

Get a spray can of XIM primer. This will insure that the finish will stick

I have been painting for 34 yrs and this primer is great

There is a DIY powder coat that you can do at home......if you want to go that route

Here you go... if you want to do something really unique, these guys have it, though I don't know if they do just pieces (which would rule much out due to cost).

Plastidip. It's matte black. And it's 100% reversible.

For the record, I did buy a Single Rec, I did not paint the faceplate, and have since sold the amp. Lol!
