What kind of painting gun and are you using IH 2150? Can't wait to see the finished product. Thanks for any info .... artIHfarmer wrote:I was wondering the same thing.
If ya'll promise not to laugh - I'll tell you how I've painted Rex and the reasons why. Promise?
Art et al, While I have a Campbell Hausfeld HVLP sprayer - I don't have the shop setup to use it. Believe it or not, I've done this whole job - one rattle can of IH 2150 Red at a time. Every nut, bolt, lock washer, spring, etc, has been individually sand blasted and painted by hand - one piece at a time.
I only have a single car shop to house everything for this job - tools, clean parts, blasting cabinet, tool box, benches - etc. It makes for quite a logistically planning process. I have made special wire hooks to hang all the parts for spraying outside and drying inside, a lazy susan painting stand and a bolt spray station.
Thanks all for following my post and asking your question.
Now stop laughing

How many cans are you up to? I've wondered how many it would take to get good coverage on a whole tractor.

It will be about 22-25 cans of IH 2150 Iron Guard Red and about 20 cans Primer. I'm keeping track, I'm publishing a spreadsheet when I am done for the all in parts and all.
