High Build Primer

Recommended Posts

The hood off the 7016H got badly rust etched on top after I stripped it and it sat in the stretched fabric shed for a while where the heat and humidity can get extreme in the summer. I shot it with Rust-Oleum bare metal primer first. Then a coat of R/O #2081 grey automotive primer. Then a coat of R/O #2089 black automotive primer, then shot on multiple coats of Dupli-Color #FP101 grey, high-build, filler primer (found it at Wal-Mart in the automotive department for under $4 for an 11 oz rattle can). I sanded out with 180 grit. You can use a D/A sander on large areas but a lot of hand sanding was needed. The idea is to sand out the soft, chalky filer primer as completely as possible without sanding through the black primer. If necessary, circle low spots with a felt pen and shoot on more filler primer or fill with bondo but don't sand through the black primer or you are wasting money. I came up with good results with the first attempt. A rough, nasty metal surface came out glass smooth as the photos show. You really should shoot another coat of a hard primer over the soft, chalky, filler primer but I did not in this case as I am not on one of them TV shows, LOL! The surface did come up amazingly glass smooth considering how bad off it was to start.

      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
