I bought a used Argyle SPC3 several months ago that had several chips in the paint on the boiler wrapper. Not being satisfied with the paint, I have been buffing it with different finishing compounds....until I now have large spots where the primer is exposed. Now I must repaint the boiler wrapper. My question is...do I remove the boiler wrapper to paint it...or do I mask all the appliances and try to spray paint the boiler while on the locomotive. I don't know all that is involved in removing the boiler wrapper and am somewhat reluctant to attempt something that may exceed my limited abilities.
