The Last 2 Tractors (the "BAD ONES")

Here is the first tractor I had painted where it turned out not so good. THis one isn't as bad as the last one, but I feel like it is the same effect. I can live with this one, but the last one I can't.
This is the tractor where I started using the gun setup pictured (regulator and filter). Also, where I started using CASE/IH Ironguard. And also these 2 are where I started having the metal blasted, primed (with "All You Need" as recommended by Paint Shop), then Wet Sanded (320, 400, 600)

I would advise against using All You Need. It is nothing but spray able body filler. It is not moisture proof and it's way too hard to sand. I've used it many times along with the yellow Z Chrome primer...both are made by Clausen. A good epoxy will provide moisture resistance, adhere better,and flow out smoother. All you need leaves a textured finish and it's hard too sand out. I usually knocked it down with 180 and then water sand with 400. I have seen it crack after a year or two also, and once I got bad hardener with mine and it wouldn't set up and I had to scrape it off. Another thought for you is if you painted that stuff outside and the gray All You Need ive used looks almost black, I would say the panels were heated up before you sprayed them to where the paint flashed as soon as it hit the panel and didn't flow out. Using medium reducer didn't help that any either.

You can't tell from the pictures, but if you feel with your hands and look close at it, it has a TEXTURED FINISH and is somewhat dull.
The red tractor I am showing next is the worst .

Basically.....most of the cast iron came out pretty seems a little dull for the finish, but smoothed out nice. The sheetmetal is where I had the most trouble.
I did wet sand the gas tank (with original paint and no primer) just so it would "match" the rest of the sheetmetal. Like I said earlier, I'm no professional, but I "thought" that would help.

The fenders were not wet sanded however were cleaned up with some 220 sandpaper.
The fenders, gas tank, hood, and front cowl/grille all came out like you see in the pictures of the gas tank, etc.
