BTW, all the paint we used so far is Valspar Tractor and Implement Restoration Series (primer and paint)  it has excellent spray characteristics seems to be very durable and you can get matching colors in a spray can for doing touch-ups, etc.

Really cool pics, thanks for sharing. When you are painting , do you ventilate the shop?  Every time I have attempted painting inside I coated every with paint.  :cartangrys: :cartangrys:


Keep the pics coming.  :beerdude:

I am no painter and wonder if valspar could be used to paint over rustolium?

 Yes I do ventilate the shop; I have an old squirrel cage fan out of a furnace it pulls about 90% of the overspray out.

I dont see why not, as long as the rustoleum was fully cured and you scuff it up a bit I think it would be fine.
