Majic paint

Postby Cstrock » Tue Oct 13, 2020 3:35 pm

Anyone ever used the majic paint from tractor supply. I plan on spraying it with air compressor. And using hardner and thinner. Any suggestions. Don’t need show tractor just good looking one

I've never used it but from what I have heard its not very good, fades quickly. I would use an automotive acrylic enamel, its a much better paint than the alkyd enamels thats out there.

You mentioned not wanting a show tractor paint job. To me, any paint from an automotive paint store would be excluded with that criteria.

I’ve used alkyl enamel from Case/IH; their #2150 red and their primer. Great results for working tractors. If you’re using hardener, use proper breathing apparatus.

VanSickle makes a good paint—used to be TSC’s paint, which Majic replaced. Never used Majic but heard awful things about it. Can find VanSickle at many farm and home stores.

I personally won't use Majic paint. I've been very disappointed with any I've tried. You do too much work to use bad paint.

Stanton, acrylic enamel is not a hi tech automotive paint its just one step above alkyd enamel. It is more durable to the sun thats why I recommend it over the enamels that the tractor companies sell.

Majic is just a cheap paint that Tractor Surprise uses to make a bigger profit.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

You're right. Acrylic enamel is the better option.

I've used Majic on unimportant little projects, I wouldn't use it on anything I care about. Like Tim says, there is no magic in that can. I, too, like the acrylic enamel.

Any other suggestions for paint. I don’t have a dealer anywhere near me. Can you buy the iron guard off the internet

Does your tsc not carry Rustoleum Tractor paint? Mine does. Hands down a better choice over the Magic paint. Run away from that stuff.
