I just had the most amazing episode of customer service.  

 

I am about to repaint some panels on the Allis HB112.  I wanted to try the new Farm & Equipment Rust Paint by Rust Check in a rattle can, but the can doesn't give the standard "top coat with x minutes or after x days", so I emailed the company.  The Customer Information rep, Mario Segreti, emailed me back within an hour asking for my phone number.  I sent it to him at about 6:20 pm today figuring I'd hear back tomorrow.  About 10 minutes later my phone ran.  We talked about the product and what I was painting for about 15 minutes.  He explained how to use it for best results.  He also recommended, and explained how to use, their Rust Converter for heavy rust areas on older tractors.  It is a converter that acts like an acid etch primer.

 

 

Anyway, for any of you wanting to try the product:

  • scuff existing paint, (bare metal not required but acceptable),
  • clean surface,
  • no primer unless heavy rust, then use Rust Converter instead of primer, 
  • multiple thin coats, and
  • completely dry before top coating (1.5 hours typical).

Paint day is Wednesday, if the weather warms up as predicted, so I'll post results on Thursday.

Rust converters are the best, and you can also prime over them. I was a marine engineer, and we specialized in rusty metal.  Some products are better than others, and some are much harder to purchase than others, but it sound like you have a winner there! Keep us posted, and Thanks!  :wave:

We will be waiting for the doctors report.  Just take your time hopefully it will turn out excellant, The reason I said take you time is most useres tend to want to see the finished product and put the paint on to heavy and we all knows what that does--runs.

Again good luck with the painting and hopefully the weather is in your court..

I don't think I've seen the rust check paint down this way. Let us know how it works out.

I don't know about Texas, or the USA generally, but here in Canada you can buy it at Canadian Tire or Home Hardware.  Mario Segreti is also the North American Sales Rep.  If anyone knows where to buy it in or near Texas, it should be him.  Drop him an email.
