            HP, what do you do to prep the mailboxs? do you strip them of their paint and blast?

              Depends , some are painted & some have powder coated finish..

              Painted ones are stripped & blasted..

              Powder coated ones i give a good light Blast for my powder to have a good Bite..
              Then a 15-20-min @ 400 deg Pre bake test .. to make sure The current finish holds up..

                  I have a black one from Lowes that I hit with 4 coats. All I did was wash dry and shoot. It's been on the pole for 2 months with no problems.
