    I see that Rustoleum offers the hi-temp (1200 degrees) in an Almond color. I think that is close to what my factory color is on the Q. If I find some at Lowes then I'll be painting mine after sanding down the lid. I wonder if a primer is recommended?

    I believe the lid is powder coated which can be a little tricky to repaint if not prepped right.
    Do a Google search on " painting over powder coat ". That should give you some ideas on the prep work, so your paint will adhere properly.

    you can try having it bead blasted to remove all the gray and then paint that. But painting aluminum in general is tricky.

    Please post some pics if any of you are successful painting the Q. I'm looking to rescue a neglected Q and would apprecite any tips on painting the hood.

    I wish Weber would offer it in black here for the states. I called the factory store to complain...but no progress. he he

    Update: I sanded down the lid yesterday to bare aluminum and repainted it with the almond color rustoleum high heat. I'm going to fire it up today and see if it does not peel off like previously. I really like the color of the almond on the lid by the way. I'll keep you guys updated.

    What sandpaper grit you used and is it lots of work to sand it down to bare metal ? I have a Q300 and the paint is starting to loose on the backside.

    Morgan,
    Welcome to the forum!

    Hopefully Al will see your question and reply, but it looks like his last post here was in 2011.
    Maybe another member can give their experience.
    I do my steaks very well, but never well-done. Well, unless I screw up.
