I've used regular Rustoleum thinned down and shot from a paint gun. Turned out fairly nice, but the black faded after a couple years with a gray tint to it because I did not clear coat.

I have a friend with a trailer shop that takes trade ins. he said they use the Rustoleum thinned just a tad with the white sponge rollers to refurbish the used trailers. He says it levels nicely and you have less waste with the roller and gets better coverage over spraying.

 

I have read very few positive reviews on the TSC Magic brand of paint, most are negatives.

I read on the web that at ACE Hardware they will colormatch their Rust Stop paint . If that's so I could mix my yellow for the outside areas and use the ACE paint for the undersides and air duct tubes ect . Next question in ACE Rust Stop any good ?

Mixed the orange into the yellow paint i had then put a little on a paper plate and went to  ACE  Hardware, they told me they don't color match enamel but they have have tint base in gl sizes  so I think the wrong person was there . Anyway I bought a gallon of JD yellow in their Rust Stop brand . I mixed some of the orange to get the color I was after , it took about 3/4 gl to paint what you see . I will use my old paint for the under sides of the hood grill , air ducts ect . and the ACE brand for what's shown outside of the hood & fenders  .DSCN1947.JPG DSCN1948.JPG DSCN1949.JPG

Will all good intentions I was planning on spraying the parts I removed inside the garage over the winter ,,,, that didn't happen , thought it would have been a pita to cover everything in the garage  from  sanding ,  overspray ect and the final hammer was both of my wifes cars would have to have stayed outside . Figured OK, wait until spring , it was such a crappy one and then with all the other spring chores  that it took until now to get everything sanding , primed and painted . But it turns out the ACE Hardware paint faded so before I start assembling it I'm going to use the NAPA paint hoping it hold up better . That too needed some orange paint to match but I think I have it very close so I'll do the hood , fenders cowl , and other parts that you can see easily and if there's enough paint everything  . With advise of a fried who did body work , he said to put a coat of NAPA over a recently painted part to see if there was any issues , both are enamel and used the same thinner , I used a brush on a bracket so it's thinker then I would have sprayed . This morning I looked and it was OK , If all is well then tomorrow will shoot the whole thing again and start the job of putting everything back together in the next few weeks

I would wish you God Speed but, considering your current time expenditure on this, it would feel blasphemous somehow...
:poke:

Glad you're making headway again, hope it goes well Al

Made a little more progress , new seals installed in the p/s cylinders . most of the tin work back . new choke cable , . Last night worked on the ignition switch and wiring . Should have done that before putting the cowl on because there was a  8 plug connector buried that the feed to the ignition switch with corroded off :wallbanging:  and the dash doesn't seem to work even after repairing the power feed :wallbanging:

Paint that doesn't hold up is a real disappointment. Every time I look at our Fordson and see how quickly the TSC paint went downhill I feel bad. Such a nice tractor and I did that to it  :wallbanging:

 

You tractor is coming along real nice. Your going to be happy when your done.

Made a little more headway this week . Adjusted the valves , set the timing and filled the p/s, I was a little concerned that the steering was locked tight I set the new steering wheel on and couldn't turn it because I worked on the p/s cylinders I knew the linkage , kingpins ect wasn't the problem but in the steering shaft or gears them selves . Didn't want to break the wheel or strip the splines I put the nut on with some washers , sprayed some PB blaster down the shaft ,it did break free but I think it should be better . Maybe more use will help . I brakes needed to be looked at , when I moved it last year closer the garage I was on a slight grade pointing towards the house and went to stop it to back up there wasn't any brakes ! Had to drop the loader to stop . Rasied it up with outriggers and ran it with the tires off the ground to see if I could clean the rust off the drums that way . The more I did it the better they got , after adjusting them they don't seem too bad . When I bought this tractor the fellow had mounted the backhoe but didn't have the hydraulics hooked to it . What I did was install a simple push/pull valve between the loader pump and valve it has one in port and two out ports . You push it in the the flows goes to the loader valve ,when pulled it sends the oil back to the backhoe . the backhoe return line back to the tank ( loader frame ) just got a tee Anyway the push/pull valve was so hard to move I had to tap it with a hammer to move it . Again PB blaster and working it back and forth freed it up like new . The exhaust pipe to muffler should be here soon ,then I can finish putting the hood back on . Getting closer !
