CASE IHC RED PAINT ?

Postby Arizona Mike » Thu Apr 22, 2004 10:58 pm

Hello cub stars

I received a new / aftermarket PTO shield today from John and Jamie at JP Tractor in Fredricktown, MO. It is a nice replica of the original and fits perfect.

When I got my cub it was painted with Case IH 2150. I had my cub hauler painted Case IH 2150. They match perfect.

Now I need to do some minor touch up and paint the PTO shield. I bought a can of Krylon Farm & Implement spray paint named "International Harvester Red". Its not the same color as my tractor and trailer. It has more brown in it.

Next I tried ( not on the Cub ) some Tisco Implement Enamel. It was called "IHC Red". Same deal...a rusty brown. Nice color, but I don't like two tone Cubs.

Could someone please suggest where I might be able to find the same color red that's on the tractor...in a spray can. Or... do I go to Sears and get that air compressor I have been looking at and use real DuPont paint.

Thanks. Its always interesting and informative reading the forum.

My closest Case IH dealer is up in Tucson, about 100 miles. They won't send me the IH2150 spray cans by UPS or USPS because they might explode and dismember or kill somebody. Spray paint is HAZARDOUS MATERIALS.

Any suggestions.

Thanks

They also sell it in quarts & gallons. A little harder to work with but will go a long way.

Hi Mike
I bought a quart of paint from http://www.cngco. com. My instate dealer, an hour away, said he could not ship it for the same reasons you stated, but the dealer I listed said he can ship quarts, and prob. gallons, but they have to go by ground shipment. UPS ground, no airplane shipments and one other rule I forget. I don't know about the spay cans. Paul K. in N.H.

Thank you.

I guess its time to decide to buy a compressor and small spray gun or air brush. I need one anyway. Any suggestions about a compressor or spray painting oufit. I have never used an air compressor, but I like the tools you can get for them now.

Is the paint that comes in quarts ready to be shot, or do you mix it with thinner.

Hey Ken...what is that thing that moves around in your...I think its called aviter?

I think it's a very cool penquin. Got it from the profile server.
Doesn't look a thing like me though. :lol:

Painting is like everything else , it seems. It won't be cheap to get started, but you will get a lot of satisfaction learning and then getting a nice job when you paint. With painting, preperation is about 90 percent of the work and your finished job won't be any better than the labor you put into it. It takes some time to study and learn the different types of paint available and when to use what type. Some paints are very dangerous if you breathe the fumes. Paint needs to be thinned with a reducer so they can be sprayed. Also some paints need a catylist. Equipment that will be needed is a good compressor, probably at least $1,000 new. The spray guns I use are the foreign cheap guns. But, I do believe the paint quality is more important than the quality of the spraygun. Good guns are expensive and I just can't see spending $600 or more for a tool that will be used very little. Once you have a compressor, you will find you use it a lot. Air tools make a job easy, sand and beadblasting can be done. You will wonder how you ever got along without it so the money will never be wasted on a compressor. Spraypainting and sandblasting take a big volume of air, so a small one won't work too well. Probably at least 12 cfm with a 60 gal tank. Hope this helps some.

Do you really think I need to spend that much on a compressor. This is about $800 more than I thought. Is this a quailty or performane issue?

Any special regulators I should buy?

This is going to be one expensive PTO shield, but like Ken's wife says...Its cheaper than psychiatric therapy.

Thanks

I think you could get by with a 30 gal compressor for painting the Cub as when it is all apart, the items are small and you could get by with less air storage. No, not talking quality here either. I think Wal Mart has the campbell housefield compresor at right under $1,000 for the 60 gallon and thats pretty much bottom of the barrel.

I have use a HVLP (high volume low pressure) Campbell Hausfeld That you can get at TSC with fair results not for automotive finishes but sprays straight enamel OK

Which sprayer did you get from TSC? I got the Farmhand, which was $300, for $80.00 on clearance, new in box. I haven't had a chance to try it yet. I hope it will spray good paint.
