I use rustoleum paint. For the red-sunrise red. for the grey- 22 parts almond-1 part black-1 1/4 parts sunburst yellow. Add the yellow last and tweak to your likeness. I'm painting to clean up and keep the rust down. I'm not afraid to work my tractors and won't shed a tear if the paint gets scratched in the process.
I have a different mix for my industrial Buff color.

What are your intentions for this tractor - As you mentioned brush painting, I'm thinking this is a working girl?

There are numerous shades of gray available for the 8N - The Tisco 240 is the most correct with a hint of olive and is shown in the below photo. The power train is Rustoleum Sunrise Red.

If you use a spray gun then it is important to use a hardener or else the finish will be dull looking.
But the same paint applied with a brush will be shiney and nice.
If you brush it, thin the paint a bit and apply 2 coats for lasting protection and attractive results.
I never had long lasting results from a spray can.
Dulled quickly and faded more.
The old timers who bought these tractors new would have scoffed at the fancy paint jobs we apply on them today.
Brush job was good enough.
Thanks to Ed Gooding for this great photo.

I really like the Van Sickle tractor and implement paint. It has served me well.

I agree, and now it is all I use. Van Sickle makes it for Tisco I believe.
