Here is the gun I use and the paint.
Harbor Freight Gun (been using it for 1 1/2 years).....used another one before that and just replaced it even though I clean them. I had also used this particular gun on the Red tractor (last one painted) RIGHT AFTER I had thoroughly taken it apart and cleaned it.
The pressure regulator and water filter (also from Harbor Freight) on the paint gun. I started using these 2 accessories on the last 2 tractors I painted. I added them after reading an online article stating it is better to have versus my current setup (pressure regulator at compressor and no filter).
CASE/IH Iron Guard Paint. Just started using it and only used it on the last 2 tractors (the ones I had finish problems with)

The Hardener and Reducer came from the local Automotive Paint Store and should be the correct application for the type of paint and the weather conditions. It was recommended by the owner of the store and I've been using it since I started painting with different brands of paint with no problems like I've expierenced on the last 2 tractors.

Paint Mixed at the 8:1:1 ratio as recommended by paint store and have been doing that for 3-4 years with no problems....with more expierence sometimes I add reducer as needed to the viscosity I prefer to spray through the gun.
