 Re: QUANTITY OF PAINT? WD in reply to MIKE DAVIS, 03-14-2003 04:31:43  
I painted my WD with a siphon type gun at 35 PSI and PPG automotive paint (expensive). I used 2 gallons of PPG primer which was about five coats, first three sprayed lightly. The Persian Orange #1 I used about 1.5 gallons. This was three coats, first two lightly and third fairly heavy. I did all the parts that were off and the chassis seperatly and then the whole tractor assembled with the last coats. Bottom. top, all of it was done the same. All finish coats had hardner added. That was three years ago and I do use the tractor for plowing and some lighter work. It still looks like new. The hardner does allow chipping however more so than non-hardned paint.

1 to 2 gallons, depends on what type of gun you have and how you use it and the quality of paint you buy and what you call painted. If you leave it all together except the tires a gallon will put a nice finsh on what can be easily seen as long as you dont spend too much time on the bottom. I have used close to two gallons on tractors that were painted mostly apart and look as good on the bottom as the top. The higher end paint will cover more tractor per gallon as will the use of an HVLP gun.
