Anyone use this paint? Results?
While I want a white truck, I would be pretty tempted to shoot the GI paint if I ran across it. Nice truck.i am the the chrome delete guy as well----i found 2 gallons of military OD at the surplus store----auto paint shop figured out the reducer needed because the directions were lacking---
On a related subject. If one is shooting a primer and then multiple coats of top coat, do all the coats, including the primer, get the hardener?I have not used the Valspar but I have used Van Sickle tractor paint from my local Atwoods Farm store to paint a couple of tractors and some equipment. It is very tough and seems to do well at rust prevention. Without the hardener it does sun-fade over time. According to their website the hardener is supposed to prevent that. I have a large truck, 2002 Kodiak c8500, and some equipment that I am going to paint with some brand of tractor paint, with a hardener. Atwoods still carries Van Sickle and Tractor Supply is now carrying Majic brand paint, they use to carry the Valspar. If you aren't worried about a show quality job and need something durable, I would not be afraid to use one of the brands of tractor paint.
Did you ever get your paint job done? I have been looking for an update wondering if you were happy with the result.
Happy New Year.
We painted a lot of equipment in the field instead of using a brush we used a solvent sprayer,thinned the paint a little and had at it worked surprisingly well and covered quickly.Hey Jeff,
Happy New Year to you, too!
Oh yes, my paint job. Ha. The truth is, my project (1990 F350 6BT) is a long, long, long term project. My goal is to get to painting sheet metal in, get this, the summer of '17!
I did buy a quart each of the Valspar red primmer and IH white top coat. I brushed them on various test parts, with various prep, and they are now outside "testing" in the sun, rain, and snow. Obviously, I have no results to report, but when I do, I will report here. I also have tests of Rust-olum, Chassis Saver, and POR15.
Thanks. I do have air, and intend to spray the paint when the time comes. My intention is to buy some more of the primer and top coat and experiment spraying it next summer.We painted a lot of equipment in the field instead of using a brush we used a solvent sprayer,thinned the paint a little and had at it worked surprisingly well and covered quickly.
