Curious. Did the white film develop after the paint was already dried or as you were painting it. Sometimes a fast drying paint will develop a cloudy film over the surface when painting in humid weather called blush. From what I understand the Vansickle Tractor Paint is a acrylic enamel and would be subject to blush.

Van Sickle seems to make 3 grades of Tractor/Fleet paint, two alkyds and an acrylic.

Van Sickle is also terrible to deal with - the rep I was communicating with didn't seem to know the difference between acrylic and alkyd, and sent me to three distributors for more info, none of who turned out to carry the stuff. Sometimes you run into a company that makes you wonder how they can stay in business.

Oh, the only price info I could pry out of them was that the acrylic is about double the price of the alkyd. That works out to $66 or so.

Correction: Found a dealer who actually carries the Ag & Fleet acryic and they say it's $112 a gallon.

Trojan Specialty Products- 1-800-279-1770

It is a true acrylic, not an acrylic modified alkyd.

So the search for a reasonably priced alternative to alkyd goes continues...

That is a reasonably priced Acrylic Enamel... Dupont Centari is $150 a gallon plus. I'm quite sure the 'Reds' will cost more.
