I have an O/U thats rusting up pretty quick, if i paint it, will the paint be effected by the heat of my barrels? Or should i save up for a dip job instead?
I would sand the rust out and have it dipped, because before it gets dipped in your desired film pattern it gets spray painted in a certain primer depending on film pattern chosen. So its a double protection in your case to prevent the re-occurrence of rust; primer paint and the dip.
