I am pretty confident I can get a good paint job I just hate the thought of messing it up on assembly. I am adding a bunch of extras, so I am wanting this to be nice. I am adding headlights, hydraulic lift, rear lift, and the cigarette lighter. I am also going to add grease zerks. I am hoping to have blue paint spraying Sunday.

I will be honest, I have had john deere rf, Allis Chalmers b10s, wheel horses and etc but I have to say my T is my favorite. It's a good looking tractor

Tack coat had chemical reaction. Majic paint, hardner and reducer, Rustoluem automotive primer, and a wipe down with paint thinner 20 min before spray. Any ideas?

We used to call those fish eyes. It only happened to me once and I never knew what caused it. That was 45 years ago. I let it dry for a week. Sanded it all, reprimed, waited a week(kept my brothers away from it), and it painted well. 

 

I suspect that the Rustoleum and the Majic have an incompatiblity. The rustoleum usually needs a bunch of days to cure before something other than rustoleum goes over it. I had a wrinkling problem, 35 years ago using rustoleum primer and ironclad paint.

 

Good Luck, Rick

 

I now wipe down with rubbing alcohol because of the funny paint compounds. Isn't Majic a soy based paint now?

I have no idea what's it made out of. The paint that didn't fish eye had a nice sheen and feel. I am going to get all the majic brand supplies. I am being a little ocd. Nothing is going to half a#&. I am going to make it right
