AC Yellow Van Sickle Paint?

Recommended Posts

Chris727
Did anyone purchase any of the van sickle paint AC Yellow 925110? If so how was the quality? I just called van sickle and the guy told me they had had a problem with some but they have since corrected it. Costs about 13.14 for a quart plus freight. Thanks. Chris

I was working with them on matching all three yellows. I have not heard anything from them lately. I guess it is time to contact them again, at least to get my samples back. I wasn't thrilled with the drying time, but I think it is pretty good paint

They want 24 hours between coats. My test hood took all of that. Not much change in dry time using a hardener. I have no idea what dry time is with their spray cans. Use Naptha thinner for reducing for spray gun. As of yet, no clear coat recommended by them.

I just talked with Vansickle again. New samples will be sent to me early next week. Hopefully I can give better idea after I have sprayed some more. Spray cans should dry quicker than mix/gun. Hardener is available, will not affect dry time much; but will increase gloss when cured. Spray cans looking at about 8 hours to recoat, about 3 days to fully cured. Mix/gun about 10 to 12 hours to recoat, about 5 days fully cured. If anyone wants to reimburse for shipping, I can spray samples and mail to you. As long as the quart lasts!

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
