Painting w/farm implement paint....
 
Anyone ever paint a tub with farm implement paint? When I put on a new windshield frame I painted it with red Farmall Paint,.its held up really well. The stuff is super cheap too. I was thinking about do the whole thing with it....
Just an idea...

Just an Idea? And a darn good one! You're correct that the farm paint is great stuff. It is inexpensive and adheres well to the prepared surface. You really can't beat it if you like the color.

Me, I like MF red or JD green... humm... perhaps a two tone?

I grew up on a farm, and have sprayed a lot of that paint. It is pretty durable, but it tends to oxidize a little quicker than an acrylic enamel or a polyurethane paint. But, bang for the buck, it is hard to beat. I have always used it for undercarriage components and roll bars and that sort of thing.

I've seen this paint at Quality Farm and Fleet. What do you thin it with? What kind of primer is best to use with implement paint?

I have always used plain old laquer thinner. The mix is often around 1:1 or with just a little more paint than thinner. I spray it with my primer gun, don't want to use my nice chinese gravity feed[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]. As far as primer goes, I have used everything from bomb can to epoxy to nothing. The epoxy jobs have always lasted longer (typically the topcoat goes away, and I am left with a nice epoxy green or gray finish. For a lot of the pieces we painted, we didn't use any primer, and the paint would usually last as long as the part we painted. Some of the parts are in highly corrosive environment(i.e. irrigation weirs and that sort of thing). Just don't expect the finish to look showroom smooth, or have a nice shine to it. I have actually polished the stuff with a buffer, and it doesn't look too bad. I will probably use some industrial enamel to topcoat the POR15 on the CJ2 frame.

The paint is great stuff i use it everywhere including the floor of the cj and the only place that shows any sign of it going away is where my foot goes for the gas pedal.

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.
