My factory Deere paint says 1 part reducer to 8-10 parts paint. 4 oz. would be the most you should use in a quart. What product are you using as reducer? That may be where the problem is. I put 12 oz in a gallon yesterday and it went on about right.

Most enamal paints are 2 parts paint to 1 part reducer unless you are using a base coat/clear coat. They are usualy a one to one mix for the paint then mix the clear with a small part of hardener. Hope this helps. good luck.

I agree with this post 1/4 to 1/2 mix of thinner to paint. Either use JD reducer or any enamel reducer, not lacquer thinner. JD paint is a synthetic enamel. It would not hurt to buy some hardner from tsc or auto paint store to mix with your paint. May make it shine a little more and stronger as far as fuel and coolant resistant on hoods.
