    Rob, you're on the right track. Anyone that's doing vintage stove restoration will have a source for redoing porcelain enameled stove parts. They should be able to do it for you, although I don't know if you'll find matte black.

    Good luck! If you find a good resource, let us know.

    If I can't do the matte black, I'll probably season them as Jon suggests and see how that looks. I'm afraid the gloss would look odd there.

    I went ahead and scrubbed the rust off after a vinegar bath and seasoned them three times in the oven with grape seed oil. They look a lot better and I may just live with them.

    I finally heard back from John Ballantyne from Custom Ceramic Coatings. Seems like a nice guy. He said he can't do matte because the additive for that would weaken the coating to the point it would be too brittle but he can do satin. He's going to send a few example photos and we'll go from there. It may be that's what I have on there already.

    Thanks for all the advice. I appreciate the help.

    I have to say, if it were me (and granted, it's not), I would run with what you have. I think they look great in pictures. Looks like maybe some minor residual spots, but otherwise looks good.

    Yeah - I tend to be more than a little OCD about these things. Once I get an estimate on the re-coating I can make a decision on whether I can ignore the imperfections or not.

    That grill really found the right home. I can't wait to see more pictures of that very special grill.
