has anyone ever used a product that is groundup corn cobs for sand blasting? I have been told that does a great job cleaning up a tractor for painting but have never seen it done.

Another option is to apply "aircraft paint remover" on the tin work. (available at body shop supply stores) A friend of mine stripped an old car that way and it worked great. He put the stuff on in the evening, covered the car with plastic and let it sit until the next evening, then wiped off the residue with rags and paper towels. As far as the engine, etc., I have no idea what the best way is to strip those components.

I just did my Allis C .I stripped it with a wire brush cup on my hand grinder,worked great.I made a big MISTAKE,I used Rustoleum rusty metal primer thinking I would be extra protected, WRONG.It has fish oil in it which bonds to the rust.No rust,no bond,they don't mention this on the can, falsly leading someone who doesn't know to get screwed ,like me.My new paint job has the primer bleeding threw and chips off if you so much as look at it.
If you use Rustoleum,use Rustoleum clean metal primer with Rustoleum farm topcoat.

I'm no paint expert! Was in the same position as you though with some things that needed paint. I didn't need show quality but wanted something that would last. I decided to use PPG Omni Epoxy primer and Acr. Enamel paint. It was a bit more expensive than the Rustoleum type stuff and TSC equipment paint (which seems to fade and change color after a short time outside), but the stuff I painted looks better than new and the paint guy claims that the finish will wear and hold it's gloss MUCH better than the original paint. I can't ask for better than that. They mix it to what ever color you want. I wanted charcoal grey for my trailer. They showed me about 40 shades with or without metalic and could match any chip or part I brought in - everything is a standard color for them. I spent $135 for a gal. of epoxy primer, 4 qts. of paint,hardener, reducer and degreaser. The gun was borrowed but was a cheapie HVLP gravity gun from Harbor Frieght. I painted my lowboy equipment trailer, the metal on a NI spreader I'm rebuilding and primed the outside sheet metal on a NH 851 baler. I think that $135 went pretty far and the stuff painted looks show quality. The spreader looks so nice I hate to throw $hit in it. Check out the archives in the paint and body section - those guys can or already have answered most any question you can come up with. GOOD LUCK!

Randy:

Get a scotch brite pad for your electric drill. It's a big black round pad and it takes everything off fast. Ace hardware has AC Orange in quarts and spray cans (John Deere colors too). A coat of rustoleum primer will really make it last!

We had the local Ace Hardware run a match on the DuPont persian orange. It is very close to the color but affordable. They have the color code in our file there and I will be glad to contract them for it if you are interested.

Another note. Persian Orange is the color for the A-C. Most farm stores or hardware stores have it. Also Wire brushes work good to get the stuff of as well as chisels.

Bob, There are three oranges. Commonly called Persian 1, Persian 2 and the corporate. The change from #1 to #2 was about 1960 with the D-15 and series 2 D-17. Since Quality Farm and Fleet went under there is no economy paint that I know of that matches the #1 color. In PPG Ditzler Delstar enamel the number for number 1 persian is DAR60080 'bout $100 a gallon where you still can get it (VOC regs). PPG's replacement in a VOC compliant paint is Omni MTK60080 but due to pigment changes it comes out about halfway between the #1 and 2 colors.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
