Radiators - Painted

There are several very attractive radiators in my 100-yr old house - each with several layers of paint on them. Is there an easy way to strip the paint? What is the correct way to paint them?

Re: Radiators - Painted

The best way to paint them is to remove them and have them sandblasted - local sandblasting companies should be able to handle this. It is best to have a company handle it in case any of the layers of paint have lead content. Once they are sandblasted and washed, you should be able to use any decent metal primer/paint to spray them, but the thinner the paint layer the better.
