I have found mark777s painting tips very informative and helpful and have a few questions.
Rustoleum hardener ratio. Ive finally entered the painting stage. And its almost impossible to run because it flashes very quickly. It dries faster and when dry is glossy and reflective the hardener i used is valspar enamel hardener.
If you thin rustoleum with acetone you dont need hardener. You can use acetone for a reducerthinner or combine some mineral spirits to slow it the drying down. The hardener produces a harder finish.
Will a hardener work with this paint. 1948 1956 f1 f100 larger f series trucks paint hardener for rustoleum. Apply the coating in the normal and recommended manner.
I have decided to go with rustoleum restoration series allis charmers orange and wont be using a hardener. The paint is adhered well it does not come off in strips indicating poor adhesion but it does chip easily. Rustoleum actually has more selection.
Tractor paints are usually applied with a roller or a brush. A small 2oz can from napas economy line will work just fine. They are oil based like rustoleum.
Mix ratio at 8parts paint 1 part hardener 1 2 parts thinner use naptha not mineral spirits. What would the proper paint mix ratio be how many parts paint to parts thinnerreducer. Thanks for checking in.
The drying time is also less. Not flat but not gloss either but durability is not good. The ratio is very forgiving.
Add the acrylic hardener just prior to application of the coating. Per gallon with rust oleum industrial dtm acrylic enamel. As for ratio a safe one would be 421 4 parts paint2 parts reducerthinner1 part hardener if you get a run you can flood the area till it runs off evenly.
I dont know if it works for rustoleum but tractor supply carries valspar tractor paint and has a hardener for it. Rust oleum and magic hardener question the boat is aluminium properly cleaned etched primed with aluminium marine primer and spray painted with 2 coats of rust oleum oil based paint without hardener. The truck trailer paint tsc used to carry is much better than the tractor paint that seems to be all they carry now.
Exceeding the recommended amount will not further enhance benefits. Im using rustoleum satin black for my 54 frame and underside running gear. This is the formula i use when spraying with rustoleum.
A slight viscosity loss may occur but not sufficient to affect application. Appeared to bein good shape and it had a new battery. I use rustoleum enamel all the time with valspar hardener.
Bought a poulan pro lawn tractor used last year.
