Hi All

Whats the best paint to use for a Gearbox???

Thanks Sam.

I scrubbed my gearbox spotless and then used black smoothrite.

Remember - preparation is everything.


Just be careful cleaning the exterior of a geabox. From my T25 experience T25’s are prone to corrosion (not the red metal worm, but the white variety) and taking a wire brush to the casing may possibly pop a few holes in it in particular the nose cone. I don’t know much about other model gbx’s but I suspect they may be similar. Help me out here guys :huh:


Pardon the spelling.
I also have that white build up on gear box.
Thanks for the suggestions

Regards sam
