Do I need to use Hardener for Centari Paint?

I want to paint a Farmall Regular and I have Dupont Centari paint (IHC Gray). The mix was for 8:4:1 but I have been told it is best to use a supplied air system if I use a hardener. Unfortunealy, I do not have one nor can stumach the cost for one right now. Can I paint the tractor without the hardener? I do not have a time limit, so if it takes a awhile to dry that is ok.

Centari comes in different versions--read the instructions, available at your dealer or on their website. Advantage of hardener is that the paint flows out better and mistakes can be corrected the next day. A supplied air system will cost less than Centari, including reducers, primers, surfacers, etc that you should buy if you are going to use expensive paint. You can save some money by using Dupont's Nason which comes in both acrylic enamel and urethane.

Sorry supplied air is for you to breathe. We just use the same mask they use in a body shop and then we have an exhaust fan and an intake air filter.

What do you mean "supplied air"? We use a regualr air compressor and a filter. We do run it through another tank prior to going into the filter so it is fully cooled down before getting to the filter.
