as far as painting goes, from what i've read, delrin is virtually impossible to get paint to stick to.
I'll do some experimenting tommorow and take a few pictures. The top I have sitting in the closet has 3/8 threads so it's pretty useless really
So the top I had has more of a machined polish to it then I remember so that might influence results a bit.
Here are the pictures:
Box and top:
Engine starting alcohol (tried adhesive remover first on this side but it didn't do much):
Washing petrol (says so on the bottle ):
Gasoline (Super 95 (it's a European rating)):
Quite obviously sandpaper (grit 150) (smallest grit I could find on my workbench, I rubbed it on an uneven surface as well so this is a worst-case
It's pretty hard to tell from the pictures but the starting alcohol and gasoline had a minor effect.
The sandpaper obviously did have an effect and I think with a finer grit and a flat surface to work on this will give better results than what I achieved.
I hope others might have more solutions.Edited by Bloitz - 8/3/13 at 1:55am
