Not all paint is basecoat clearcoat. The 2k urethane I use doesn't need a clear coat. A base coat clearcoat is used mostly on cars especially metalic finishes. The basecoat visually looks like colored primer. It goes on dead flat and the sheen comes from the clear coating that follows. Its a really good finish for a car but in my opinion is not as good for a tractor as a urethane finish. On your car the finished is designed to look good and protect from rust. Your tractor is walked on and driven through high weeds and generally handled much rougher. The clearcoat finish is just not formulated for that abuse where the urethane is.

Clear coat is urethane without color. I believe that base/clear is MORE durable than single stage, I have no proof of that. It is certainly more easy to buff and gives a better finish after buffing than single stage. That said, I use base clear because I cannot keep the cooties, lint etc, out of my paint. Single stage is easy to sand/buff to the primer unless I really pour it on. The clear in the base clear system is much harder to buff through if I use 3 coats. Otherwise there is no real advantage and in a clean environment I would use single stage Omni MTK.

Ok so if i go with Omni MBC base/clear what products and steps should i use? He is going to sandblast sheet metal and just clean and use some sort of solvent on chasis and wheels. Current paint on tractor is the original. Hes fairly new at painting tracotrs and has only done 5 or 6 in past 3 years.

Well this is becoming more difficult than i thought. So i went to my paint store and found a good match for Ford tractor blue but they dont have the correct grey. I then asked him just to color match my sample but his response was that he couldnt do that in the Omni line. What? I dont understand this and honestly i dont get the feeling these guys know much about painting anyways. Seems like they are more like a fast food worker s than a paint specialist. Anyways i now have to look for another line which there recommending PPG Delfleet. Does anyone know anything about this paint? Is it good or should i look at something else? Keep in mind that the guy doing the painting is no expert and has only painted 6 or 7 tractors. We are also buying the proper safety equipment for spraying these paints.
