Looking great Dan, glad the rims cleaned up for you, and you got the tires on them.

Those look really great Dan! I too need to learn a little more about quality paints and hardners. Spectacular work as always!

They look great with the tires on them. That stuff must dry pretty quick!

It is PPG "Shopline" acrylic enamel, and I forget the hardener brand, but it's a brand name "Wet Look" hardener. On a good warm, low humidity day, you can handle the rims carefully in about 10 minutes. These had sat after painting about 4+hrs when I mounted the tires.

Those look great and will look even better when on the tractor. That's impressive being able to mount those tires only 4hrs after painting. I find that weather conditions really are important when painting, even with a rattle can. Once the temp. gets below about 65f the drying time is much longer. When I painted my 314 fender deck last summer I had perfect conditions which really helped me get a decent finish.

One of the biggest things on a dairy farm is fast drying BECAUSE of bugs/flies! The faster it cures, the less likelihood an insect will get "caught" in the paint. A couple tiny ones did, and they will live (be) forever stuck on my rims. :laughingteeth:

Really nice looking wheels/tires, great that you were able to go from taking the rims out of the tank to painted and mounted that quick.
I know what you mean about the bugs, my BIL and his buddy put the clear coat on my BIL's 64 Impala one evening and timed it perfectly with a hatch out of some tiny flying something that found the wet clear irresistible.

Sure does! The stack has a baffle inside it. Still on the loud side, but nothing like a straight pipe!

Those came out great! Good job, Daniel! I almost want to go make an E-tank now.


Ryan, you gotta set one up. You'll be amazed.

Those rims looks great with the tires on them, and even better on the tractor! Maybe ill set up a tank if I ever get to my speedex.
