So I'm working on getting a coat of paint on my Bolens 1254, and this is the farm/implement paint available at my local TSC. Has anyone used this stuff, and what did you think?

I'll be spraying it with the el cheapo purple HVLP from Harbor Freight if it makes a difference.

Long range I have no idea.  But I sprayed the JD yellow on a deck, and it covered well, went on very good.  I would definitely use a quality wet-look hardener, NOT the hardener TSC sells.  Even with their hardener, the cure is slow & color always faded with the old line of paint.  Using a higher end hardener from an automotive paint supply is the ticket to longer lasting shine & color.  I spray with a Campbell Hausefield "pro" (pro novice gun lol) gun.  I've also shot a lot of paint with the HF HVLP guns, and they do fantastic!

Got me thinking about HF HVLP paint guns again. I am doing my best not to buy one of these. :wallbanging:

Sorry, but the amount of time involved in prepping for a good outcome I would stay with a good automotive paint, not a ....

 

soybean based paint :bigrofl: .

 

P.S. And I'm cheap, but also believe in "you get want you pay for".  :thumbs:

I totally agree!  I almost always buy PPG automotive paint.  But the John Deere yellow was going on a mower deck, and they get scratched up bad anyway, and I was selling the tractor/deck.  So it got the cheap stuff.   :smilewink:

I have read on other forums that this MAJIC brand paint from Rural King and other farm/family stores is not a very good quality paint.

I have not used it, but read enough to make me stay away from it.

I have also hear a lot of bad reviews about it. Too bad that got rid of the Valspar, that was some good tractor paint.

Here are results of the John Deere Green that I tried:

It turned out decent on this fiberglass hood, but I don't think I would use it to do a full restoration. Just my two cents worth.

I have used it to paint a couple of wheels, but haven't sprayed anything that will be looked at up close. It seemed to cover and tack well, but something about it still wasn't quite right.
