Folks:

Delivered my Cub for painting to local painter this morning. Took IH IronGard paint to painter for painting. When I bought paint , dealer said it had no primer but any metal primer would be adequate . Painter proposes to prime with something called metal sealer-shellac . Asserted that this was better than primer . Internet doesn"t seem to confirm. Thoughts ? This is a working tractor subject to hard use [ often running under limbs etc]

Obliged.

Martin Senour's CrossFire paint was used on this tractor by a farmer in OH. Hal

I think I would find another paint shop. If it was my Cub I would at least use acrylic enamel and an epoxy primer. I would use a surfacer on the sheet metal. It would then look better than when new. Hal

This " local painter". He has a body shop or vehicle painting shop? Commercial business? I've been around the auto body painting business 60 years and I have not heard of metal shellac. What is he going to do to prep the tractor before heapplies the shellac? How will he clean it> How will he fill the dents in the tin? I sense you need to learn some more about tractor painting before you drop that puppy off with someone.

Never heard of it. If it has the old paint on it, epoxy also acts as a sealer. Epoxy is the best primer. Not saying the "shellac" won't work but it is not better than primer made for the purpose. Some professional painters have their own ideas, that does not mean that their method is better than someone else's method.

I prefer epoxy primer and urethane enamels but the overall outcome would probably be better if the painter uses products he's accustom to working with. CNH does sell primers to go with their enamels if you wish to force it on him. I for one have never heard of using shellac on metal. I've only used it to seal wood, mostly pine knots.
