Hi All
I like to know what are the methods being adopted by the members to protect the dishes and LNBs.I am facing the problem of rusting of dish as I am residing near to the sea.Painting itself will protect the dish?The reflecting part can be painted?

You can paint with most paints on a steel dish, also spray with silicon based furniture polish afterwards, this will help to protect it.

You can paint the reflective side of a dish as long as you do not use any type of metalic content or based paint, enamel car sprays are good.
