brush on paint

Recommended Posts

Hello, Anyone have a good finish after using a brush to applicate paint onto metal...I am working in my garage which I 'm not able to paint in , it's a tuckunder with pretty bad ventilation and its cold, Apparently POR-15 has good "leveling" characteristics that I read about on their website somewhere, problem is its very expensive. Everytime I brush on paint to metal you can either see the brush marks once dried or you see runs in the paint, I have painted trailers this way because I was able to just glob it on, only cared about protection..If I could heat my garage long enough I thought if there was such a paint that existed (that had a good brush on finish) I could repaint all the rusty parts and sheet metal on B-10. Thanks

Yup, You needed to do ALL the prep work and masking yourself so Earl's employees can shoot the windows, chrome trim, tires, grill opening, headlights, taillights, etc.

http://carpainting.wetpaint.com/page/Roller+Method Roller painting DOES work. There are several examples of people painting cars, trucks, etc, with fine results. I paing refrigerators that have the doors discolored, scratched, etc, this way. Results are good.

I had a uncle that painted his car with a roller, looked good from a distance until you walked up to it.I also know a old timer that rolls his old tractors. I guess it is up to you on the quality of the finished product just a daily driver or show machine.I have ones that are both.The first one we did got a little out of hand base coat clear coat. That cost wayyy to much! Family farm and home has good paint for reasonable prices.I now use that,much cheaper and looks good. You can get it in a can or spray can.

I redid a snowblower years ago and used allis orange with a foam roller. It looked great when done, no lines or anything. Of course most of the stuff was nice big flat areas. I'd hit the hard to reach spots with a brush, once it dried I'd use fine sandpaper or a scotch brite pad then shoot it with a spray bomb of the same paint. Worked for me on that and I'd do it again.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
