Paint

Postby zimo29 » Wed Jul 11, 2018 9:16 pm

So where can I find the proper color paint for my '62 cub?
I'd prefer spray paint off the shelf. I know I'm dreaming, but I do want the proper color.

Ps I love this site and all who contribute to it. Thanks

Iron Guard 2150 Rouge Red. I'm pretty sure this is what you want for a '62. If not, someone will correct me soon enough.

Hi,
Case IH dealers still sell the tractor paint in spray cans, or quarts for spraying with a spray gun.

TM Tractor at the bottom of the page sells the spray cans also, 4 colors. You didn't say if your Cub is red.

Just out of curiosity, what kind of rocks? And do you grow them from gravel?

I just finished a paint job and I bought all of the paint products from my local Case IH dealer. Expensive, but I am extremely happy with the outcome.

All kinds but mostly limestone rocks! They were planted a long time ago by God and now I get to reap the harvest, lol!

When I picked up my first Cub, wife asked me what I was going to farm with it? Knowing that we are living on the Edwards Plateau (Hill Country) where topsoil is scarce and rocks are abundant, I joked and said, "I guess I'll farm rocks" hence the name.

How is your project coming along?

I bought the Case IH Iron Guard Primer and the 2150 red from my local Case dealer. I am currently using both to touch up parts as I clean them. I have been very pleased with both. The primer sets up tough and is hard to scratch once cured. Likewise with the paint. After I have completed all my mechanical work, I will spray the entire tractor with a gun. I plan on using the Iron Guard paints for that as well.

When you do spray the entire tractor are you planning on priming it all and then top coating?

Good question! I will prime the entire tractor then paint it. I am using the rattle cans to get the "nooks and crannies? that I won't be able to get with the spray gun once the tractor is assembled.

I can't get this well with a gun once its assembled, but I can give it a once over and blend the rattle can and spray gun paint later on.

BTW. I did an awful lot of research an hardeners. Frankly, I'm scared to fool with the hardener (even with an air-supplied respirator hood). I have plenty asthma problems between Louisiana's humidity, pollen, and pollution. I came to understand that hardeners can affect you simply from skin contact... I choose not to mess with the stuff... My plan is to polish, polish, and polish the sheet metal parts to get a good shine, then protect with wax. One day in the future, I may be able to pay a body shop to hit it with an automotive paint. For now, I'm happy with the way it's turning out.
