Dear Boris:

--Like you, I spend a lot of time fixing old equipment, trying to get a few more years, out of it. I learn, and it save money for me and my friends. I am very proud of the kind and patient folks on this blog, who have repeatedly helped anyone anywhere in the world with anything. I save old heavy duty construction extension cords, and use the good unscuffed parts to make new chords for appliances, and short household heavy duty extension cords. Best of luck with your washer.

Dear Clear Ether:

--I think sometimes trashing what seems to be useless things is not wise because someday you might need that part or smaller part of it. When this happens, you try to recall the moment you trashed the part which seemed to be useless and start knocking your head against the wall because if you kept it, it would save you time, energy and possible money. Moreover storing "useless" stuff can help you aquire new skills and improve existing. However there is other side of coin - "useless" stuff can accumulate in your house, take more space and impact available oxygen where you will be forced to dispose of it or build a shed.

--Storing "useless" stuff is how gadgeteers start and later become inventors.

Orange peel is from spraying too thick, many thin coats with enough drying time between coats is best.  Not bad though, I have seen worse done by pro painters, and have done worse.  A good paint for appliances is Hammerite smooth white, it is a close match and after it cures it is pretty hard wearing. Not many colours though, but the plus is that spraying years later with the same colour is indistinguishable from the original. The hammered finish is nice too.

2 part epoxy paint is great with the right equipment, have sprayed a few cars that way, and am starting to improve. At least no matt finish, and not much orange peel.

I have question as why most surface came out matte and least came out glossy? You can see transition in the middle:
even though the directions say thin layers, you still have to lay it down thick enough to produce a continuous wet coat. its tough to do with rattle cans. the tips with fan spray pattern help.

overspray will cause a rough matte finish too.

you can wetsand with something like 1000 or 1500 and try to lay down a nice even 'wet' top-coat.
