While perusing thru another popular Garden Tractor website, I came across a thread pertaining to paint formulation changes scheduled to take effect at the end of the year.

Anyone else noticing paints disappearing off the shelves any place else ?

Is it time to stock up on the "good stuff" before it's gone ??

Yes,it's going on all over.It is supposedly a evironmental thing.A lot of the solvent based paints gone up here,and water based paints are coming on strong.

I have never used water based automotive paints,nor do I intend to,unless that becomes all that is available.I much prefer Base-clear,or acrylic enamel,or even urethane.

WATER BASED LOL

The primer is not water based. The clear is not water based. The water based paint will kill you just as fast. But, now you can buy an extra set of guns and a drying system. Go "green" or go under and do things in China

But the government isn't even vaguely concerned with YOUR well being! As long as the environment is protected...

Our local HWI Hardware said the same thing when I went looking for AC implement paint and you could see the doubt and frustration on the owners face.

I don't know maybe John DeLorian was on to something with bare Stainless Steel ? Because at the rate the EPA is going that's what everything is going to have no color just bare metal.

I have never used water based paints myself but, I had an insurance claim a couple of years ago. Somebody dented my fender loading their Christmas tree. The repair shop used water based paint for the repair and it looked great then and still looks great almost 3 years later.

I had a really bad experience with a water based contact adhesive. My wife did a little research on the water based paint. It seems that it depends on what state you're in as to whether or not you'll be able to find an oil based paint. The issue at hand is low VOC paints, not necessarily water based. I just hope that it never passes here!

If that is indeed the case, I could see where the "good paint" will be discreetly shipped with garden tractor parts.

A new under ground market will probably appear for the sake of restorations...

The EPA has been been trying to force all the body shops to switch and put in New paint booths. The problem is ppg is the only company with a decent waterborne base. Everyone else is still scrambling to get their's perfected. The other problem is not everyone can drop 60-100k to get a new compliant booth so some people are just closing up. Go big gov!

Seems to me that water based paints would be harder to contain if spilled anyway. If you spill oil based paints on soil, you have to pretty much have to scrape up a little dirt with it, then dispose of it wherever they accept that stuff. With water based, you just hose it down & it goes INTO the environment????????
