We use many different primers and paints in our shop. The following is a partial list of products and codes that we use. Please feel free to contact us for more information about a specific product or project. We currently use all Martin-Senour (Napa) primers and paints, except where noted.
For Sheet metal, we use an etching primer, 15211 on bare metal, followed by a High-build (filler) primer, FP410. Just before the first coat of paint, we use a sealer. The sealer is either Gray, CS291, or White, CS292, depending on the color of paint to be sprayed. For example, we use white under yellow and other light colored paints. Gray is used under green, red, etc.
For castings, loose hardware, and just about everything else that we're not seeking a spectacular glossy look, we use an epoxy primer on bare metal. As with the sealer on sheet metal, we choose a primer that matches the tone of the paint to be applied on top. We use three different epoxy primers:
The following is a partial list of the paint codes that we have used on various tractors. These are our best guess as to what the original color would have been, although everyone is entitled to their own opinion. These paints are all single-stage (No clear coat). All paints are Martin-Senour (Napa) brand, except where noted.
