Looking to paint my industrial massey tractor. Currently, she's really rough. Lots of rust, and tons of grease. My intention is not to make a show tractor by any means, I just want to beautify it a bit, and mostly stop the rust.
My idea would first be to rent a steam pressure washer, and clean degrease the tractor. Then do some disassembly (hood / fuel tank) mask off gauges / fan belt alternator.
Prime and paint. I do have a paint sprayer which I have never used, its an HVLP air gun (can't remember the brand) but I am not sure my compressor will have enough gumption for it. I have a friend that brush painted his tractor, the sprayed over to remove brush marks.
Whats the thought on my plan. Any suggestions on what paint / primer to use, or if I should prime. I want to go with the new caterpillar yellow (the duller creamier yellow, not the really bright yellow of the older cats)
thanks very much
