If you can, remove the metalware from the object usually held in place with screws or bolts (in trunks and cases you may need to lift the inner lining for access). If you cannot remove the parts easily without causing damage, leave these in place and carefully mask around them to protect the rest of the object from spray mist.
In a well-ventilated room, lay the metalware onto newspaper or dust sheets. Ensure it is clean, dry and free from loose paint, rust, wax, oil or grease. Following the instructions on the can, give the parts one light coat with Rust-Oleum Rust Reformer.
When this is dry, give your metalware a coat of Rust-Oleum Universal Spray Paint in your preferred colour and finish – again following the instructions on the can.
Top Tip: Rust-Oleum Universal in Oil Rubbed Bronze gives a great vintage effect and compliments retro suitcases perfectly!
When metal ware is dry, reattach the parts, or carefully remove masking tape from the rest of the case.
