Default I am in the $#!+

I sprayed my new amp chassis and baked it in my wife's oven.

She is very unhappy.

I have cleared off for the afternoon so she can cool down.

LOL.

*If* your oven is smelly afterwards (happened to me too), leave it off and empty, with the door open and a fan blowing into it for a couple hours so most of the volatile stuff clung to inner surfaces has a chance to evaporate, then close door, and turn it on again for 1 hour to burn whatever remains.
Repeat cooling and blowing 1 last time and you should be as good as new.
The main reason behind this, besides cooling "honey"'s temper off, is avoiding future funny taste and smell on anything you cook there.
Leave doors and windows open or the acrid smell will cling to clothes and furniture.
Good luck.

EDIT: post some chassis pictures, we deserve them

As an obvious attempt at circumventing the forum auto-censor, the thread title has been changed.

or coat all the insides with a thick paste of Sodium bicarbonate- leave overnight and rince off with water and vinegar - does a great job at eating the grease and smells- non toxic, non agressive for your hands

Or even better bake two raw potatoes cut into 4.
They absorb bad smells. It's a faster procedure.
