Clear Coat Over Tractor Paint
Posted July 02, 2014 - 10:42 AM
I once worked at an international dealership, one of the mechanics was a full time farmer and part time mechanic.(ironically he was a JD fanatic).
He was very particular about his equipment. It never came in from the field and stored until it had been washed, dried and if he was done for the season waxed and put in the shed. When ever he traded for new there were farmers standing in line to buy his new appearing used equipment. This was not just his tractors but plows, discs, balers the whole works. And he always got top dollar.

All depends on the type of paint you use, better quality automotive paint with a hardener and higher VOC will result in a better finish to where clear coat is not necessary.
A rattle can/ Water base paint will not hold up and most likely would need a clear coat to prolong the life of the paint.
