Stove Top Recondition

This attempt at controlling the rust was unsuccessful. I have left the post here as an example of how the things we do, don't always go to plan. A newer post tells of how I have now chromed the stove tops to see if that will keep the rust at bay.
The stove top plates on our Force 10 stove, has, over the years become rusty and leaves the rust on top of the stainless stove. Unable to get replacements, I ground all remaining paint off and buffed the rust off; then using  a paint designed for heat (fire boxes and chimneys ) I repainted the plates and then following the instructions, baked the item for an hour at 250 degrees C. This will initially give off fumes. Best done in an old oven outside or the BBQ. It seems after a couple of months use, it has worked; and I have a spare can in case we need to readdress the issue in a year or so
