I quit smoking, so I'm in the process of turning my stainless zippo into Pyro's lighter from X2. I would like to use the lighter occasionally, so I am using automotive-grade block paint for the red. Unfortunately, I can't get the paint to stick. I've cleaned the surface with acetone before painting, and roughed it up a little with some emery, but it doesn't seem t o want to stay. Currently, my only option seems to be to primer the whole * thing and then paint, but I'd like to leave the stainless bare if I can help it, as the original prop seems to be painted in this manner. This board is full of gurus who can do anything with anything, so I'm looking for some advice on how to continue. Any help is appreciated.
