Put oil pan in oven to dry paint?

I spray-painted Dupli-Color brand black engine enamel on my oil pan. I know body shops bake paint into vehicle exteriors.

Should I put the oil pan in the oven or would that be somehow harmful and thus better to let it air dry?

I just don't want the paint to start flaking off later.

body shops bake finishes for speed/ production only. cant colorsand it until its cured. dont let anyone fool you with that ol "oven baked" crap. if its clean, and sanded right, paint will last. let each coat dry before you apply the next.

Plus I have to assume it's going to make your oven/house not smell very great.

...and it might explode the oven.

Maybe a heat lamp would be a better idea.

I have found that quality high temp engine paint is sensitive to chemicals until it cures in use. Once the engine warms and cools several times you can pour gas or carb cleaner on it without melting the paint.


I use whatever O'Rilley sells. I think it's VHT 1200* engine enamel.
