Paint where's the end?????

Recommended Posts

I've posted before that I had paint mixed from info here. Had it done at Sherwin Williams. I had one quart made and by the time I paid for the reducer etc plus tax that quart came to about $80. I think I still feel like a sucker even if the paint is the right color. Anyway, for the Homelites I found Krylon polyurethane in True Blue quarts. It looks slightly too dark compared to my original tractor color though the Homelite colors I see here in the Homelite section seem to be the same color as the Krylon paint. I also picked up a of small can of white to lighten the paint if necessary. I'm thinking I could also use light grey to "tint" the True Blue. Anyway, total cost less than $10. to experiment with a spray gun instead of ugh cans...MadManX

I'm using Allis Chalmers orange that I got from the local Tractor Supply store to paint my 7790 deisel. It matches almost perfectly. I think the brand is BPS (Best Paint Sold). It's available in gallons or cans, I got the cans. Looks nice and shiny to. Lawrence [A href='http://www.tractorsupplyco.com/']http://www.tractorsupplyco.com/[/a]

Hi Lawrence,That sure sounds simple to me.Ilke that idea.I started out asking all kinds of questions on paint on till i was sick of it.I even ended up like MMANX, Napa was getting ready to mix and sell me paint that was to match the color i needed.But i did not match.$93. QT,With paint and mixers&reducers.Ended up getting it of the shelf,real close match.I liked it and thats what counts.And for much LESS.---Have a good one. -Ron B

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
