Silver radiator paint



2004

I just bought a 100 year old Victorian. The radiators have been covered. I would like to bring them back to the glorious silver they should be. What is the best heat resistant paint to use?

While the radiators could be silver plated by a plating shop, most home owners probably just use oil-based aluminum paint. Conveniently, aluminum paint is also excellent at blocking rust stains from seeping through.

I am trying to refinish my 1914 radiators, I have both painted n unpainted ones that are just tarnished. What should I do especially with the tarnished ones?
