Re: different color tractor paint???
My CJ5 is Ford Blue with a white hardtop, equipment paint from Car Quest. It dries slow, but has been a good paint thus far (It's a year old). It thins with naptha, and is very forgiving, just takes FOREVER to dry. Scratches polish out fairly easily (I rarely bother) and deep scratches can be touched up with a small bristle brush rather than having to mix the paint up and break out the airgun. Colors I've seen at Car Quest are: Ford Tractor Blue, White, Farmall Red, Black, John Deere Green and Yellow. I got it for $25 a gallon--here in Alaska! When I get ready to paint the CJ7, my daughter has already requested red, so it's going to be a Farmall Red CJ7, and if I can find some in Tan (may just use some 5-ball) I'm going to paint the hardtop and doors that. Maybe for fun I'll do the raised portion of the hood in either tan or black as well. Anyhow, that's my .02!
