I finally got around to painting the radiator and radiator cover. (The cover was generously donated Brent & Maggie.) The cover was painting orange and had some rust (see here), but the other part is currently only rust in some parts. I tried sanding, CLR and wire brushing to get *most* (read: some) of the rust off.
I think it looks pretty dang good.
The metal on both is pretty bumpy close-up, but honestly, if you are on the ground staring that close at my bathroom radiator, go throw up in your own toilet. Thanks.
