What is the paint code (Dupont) that you use for silver rims? I will be using Nason Ful-thane. Thanks.

I haven't done enough of it to have an firm opinion. The silver color I use on rims is metallic, no problem, but it does not have much metallic in it. My understanding is that the heavier metallics are hard to get uniform because things like the distance of the gun from the surface, etc, makes a difference in uniformity. My opinion is that metallic serves no useful purpose on tractors.

I have read that you use rally wheel silver but do you have a Dupont paint code for it? I will be spraying Nason Ful-thane. Thanks.

Metallic paint isn't hard to do. Probably the best and easiest procedure is basecoat clearcoat. You can prime it with an epoxy primer, then spray the basecoat on. You just spray it on in light coats rather than a thick heavy coat that might run. Then put a couple coats of clear over it.

No special primer but you had better do some practicing on something that doesn't count first! Whole new ball game. Can be learned but not on your tractor.
