Resurfacing stove top

I have the '75 Itasca which for the most part is in resonable shape. the Colman Stove top / oven has some heavy rust on the surface.
Question with out sending the top to some plating outfit. What have some people used to inexpensivley resurface their propane stove top with???

High heat engine enamel works fairly well it won't look like it came off the assembly line but will be a big improvement over rust.

There are companies that also re-glaze porcelain. I'm planning to have my stove top re-glazed from the 1980s beige to black. This is not the same as resurfacing a tub or tiles in your bathroom. This is actual high temperature porcelain.

I'm in the process of painting the stove with header paint it is good up to 2000 F so far so good but the real ticket is after we have cooked our first meal on it!

I just finished refinishing my stove and it came out great. I changed the color from beige to white to match my new countertop freezer. I used high heat paint from Home Depot. I just gave the entire stove a light sanding and was careful to smooth out the one rusty spot. The key is a good taping job. I missed taping a spot on the oven handle and had a heck of a time getting the white off. I assume you will be smarter than I was and remove the stovetop to paint it. Not only are the fumes vicious (even with a mask on) but everything within five feet had a light film from the paint residue. You could see what looked like smoke coming out of the windows and doors when I would run outside between light coats. I also did my fridge using appliance paint, same process, same fumes, same residue. Thank God for Goo Gone

Not only did I remove the stove top I removed the entire stove/ oven from the counter I ust got done coating the top with 3 coats of flat black and three coats of Satin finish clear it looks realy good yeh if you look close you can see some of the sanding blemishes but this isnt a show vecihcle tommorrow I'll put it in the oven to cure the paint. I'm also replacingthe counter top and repairing the sink drains, a colender held more water than the drain did. Plenty more to do before next weekend.
