This was done over that last month or two and was a "test" as to what I coul get away with as far as finish, cure times, and first time shooting Valspar JD
Green out of a spray can. I was quite pleased at the results. For a worker tractor, I wouldn't need a better finish. I have no doubt that if I wanted to take the time, the process would yeild a show quality finish.
Ace Hardware brand enamal primer out of a spray can...
Really liked the way you could build with this primer. Flattens out sand scratches from the fiberglass and bondo work and as long as there was even a slight tack to it, +- 10 minutes, you could apply the Valspar directly as if it were another coat of primer. 100% compatible !
This was shot start to finish with final two coats of primer and three coats of the Valspar all within a two hour window. Fast and green...was the plan.
Hood finish prior to buffing by hand with swirl mark remover.
After hand buffing and a coat of Synthetic Detailer Spray from Turtle Wax. Really like this product.
One without flash to show reflection.
The Valspar sets up HARD for an enamal and I would expect it to chip before it gouges from branches, ect.
Good enough for its' intended use.
