Hi all, I had to just step in here and put my 2 cents in here and hopr to clear up some mis-under standing in paint. the only problem with alkyd enamel paint i find is the dry time between coats. it takes a good 24 hr dry time before you can re-coat, if not you will come back to find air holes in the finish. all paints put off some type of gases thats has to leave the paint before you re-coat but the enamels are the ones that takes the longest to let the gases evaporate. believe it or not alkyd enamel does get realy hard and is a good paint if you have the time to mess with it. like 24hr between coats or longer depending on weather, and after its all done. then there is about a month of cure time to realy dry to it hardest. thats the reason shops use urethane or lacquer finishes because of the dry time not because it a better paint par-say it because time cost money in todays world lol. most enamels have salvonts like mineral spirits ect. that takes longer to evaporate that means longer re-coat time. and urethanes and lacquers that uses solvents like mek ect. that evaporate in seconds that give the painter a faster re-coat time. as for as the hardness of the paint it will be the same per-say after full cure time. now if you want to save your finish a help stop paint oxidation do what any auto paint guy would do in a shop, clear coat it any wax it lol! because every paint in the sun will oxidize in time. and if i'm wrong on this i stand to be corrected :) JD tractors are painted with valspar enamel paint just a different type of enamel. :wink: enamel get a bad rap because alot of folks don't under stand finishes and the gases and dry time. so i hope to some that reads this, it may help to better under stand the differents in the type of finishes they choose.
