You can eliminate streaks by bead blasting the substrate to create a footing for the paint to ad hear to. Sanding will create scratches.

I would sand the entire surface before painting anything. Be sure to clean surface after sanding so not to get debris in paint (bumps). Stainless is hard so you may have to start with heavy grit sandpaper and work you way to a fine grit. Personally, I prefer sandblasting on metal surfaces, but I tend to like a flawless finish when I paint. Never the less, paint needs something to adhere to. Stainless is polished most usually so nothing will stick to it (hence the name stainless) by sanding it you create grooves in the surface for the paint to hold on to.

When aplying fresh paint with roller paint is peeling back of with roller

what is the substrate? (plaster, drywall, painted surface.... etc.)
if the surface is painted: can you tell the generic type of paint used before? and what is the condition of the existing paint, is it chalky? did you try to sand it?
if so, you might need to sand it and remove all flaking and chalking paint prior to application of a new coat. you might also need a compatible primer for best results.

Can I paint over a previously painted concrete floor that was sealed with a polyurethane type product?

you did not provide info on the type of the paint and what surface it will be used on - there is difference between the floor, desk, wall and car body... all are flat surface but adhesion and work of the paint differs.

depending on the pre-existing paint, but you need always to "key-in" using 120 grit paper or 150 grit screen.

if paints are of same type, then paint in - if these are two different paints, you need to strip or isolate old paint, and then use new paint.

My water pan is corroded. What can I use to recoat the pan? Do I sand down to base material then prime then coat?

Sand off all the corrosion to bare metal. Use a metal etch to scrub it down (any phosphoric acid will do), this can be gotten at Home depot or any home center in the paint section (also know as naval jelly). Clean the area with clean water after applying the acid and let dry. The naval jelly will leave a slight coating after the rinsing and this will prevent rusting afterward. Prime the metal with automotive primer, 2 or 3 coats will do. Let each coat dry completely. Use an epoxy paint (I've used single stage polyurethane and 2 part mixable epoxy type). The 2 part mixable epoxy is more expensive but lasts indefinitely and gets very hard). McMaster-Carr Supply has these products and they can be ordered on line. Apply the paint, let it dry according to the manufacturers directions and you shouldn't have any problems.

Is there a stainless steel door panel replacement for bosch dishwasher shx43c02uc

If there isn't, you might try having a local metal shop cut you a piece of stainless, fold and weld the edges to make a cover for the door and adhere it either with epoxy or a small tack-weld. I wound up having to have a cover made for my Mom's stainless-steel fridge when only white and black ones were available and a metal shop doesn't charge much for it.

Alternately, if the metal panel is housed in a frame, try taking apart the frame, removing the panel and flipping it over. They usually just paint the one side, and if the other side is bare metal, such as aluminum, you can use sandpaper to give it a brushed finish and some clear-coat spray paint to give it that shiny stainless look and durability. Then just reassemble the door with the stainless-looking side facing outwards and the wrong-color side facing in. Worked for Mom's dishwasher!

What causes fisheyes using an inexpensive HVLP system with Tremclad metal paint on aluminum?

Here is some information to solve the problem.

Fish Eyes: A surface depression or crater in the wet paint film. Fish eyes are caused by repulsion of the wet paint by a surface contaminant such as oil or silicone. The depression may or may not reveal the surface under the paint. Make sure the surface is clean.

Etching Primer
If you are going to be painting any aluminum, you are going to need an etching primer. This primer can also be used on steel. It is two-parts (not like epoxy, though) and tends to "bite aggressively" into the metal. It really stinks to have your paint stick well to your primer, but the primer releases from the metal. One of the major benefits is that you can paint over the primer in 1/2 hour, about the time it takes you to clean your gun and mix the paint.

Additives: You can get anti fisheye additives, hardeners, flatteners, catalysts, metallics, metal flake, pearls, and reducers to mention a few. Get an anti fisheye thats compatible with the paint you use.
Masks Use a good quality dual cartridge mask for all work. Don't skimp, get the charcoal cartridges, they stop most aromatic vapors.

Paint will not adhere very well to chrome.You will need to get the chrome stripped as it is a plating finish on the steel. Any plating business should be able to strip them for you. Once stripped then use any good quality primer or powder coating
