I agree with John. I have used TSC paint on implements and it fades in a short time if the equipment is stored outdoors. Automotive paint is more expensive, but will provide better service. If I had a nice WD-45, I'd spring for automotive grade enamel. My $0.02

I have a friend who restores Farmalls and uses OEM paint. He is happy with it.

James, The AGCO dealer has corporate orange for under $50.00 a gallon and Auto Value wants about $160.00 a gallon for Dupont. I just wonder why the big difference!! Thanks , Harold

you basically get what you pay for. If you buy a gallon of enamel at Wal Mart for $25. it will cover the tractor and keep off the rust. In a year it will fade and look chalky. If you get $40. gallon at Farm Store, TCS, etc it is a little better and has some shine. Most if this paint will still be attacked if you spill gasoline on it. YOu can buy automotive paint for $100- $150 a gallon. It will shine and have a deep gloss. You can add haardener to make ti even more shinny and tough. Look at your car paint and compare it to your lawn mower after 7 years. Get the idea? A good automotive paint can be purchased for $100. this is a good enamel. $100 more will get you some reducer and hardener. You can spend $200 for the paint and get emron, epoxy, etc, buy you dont need that quality or $$$. A good "base quality" automotive enamel is worth while. Stick with Dupont Delstar, or PPG type paints. Talk to you automotive body shop. They probably have 2 or 3 versions and each is a little more expensive.
