Re: A new paint job
I have a 1959 Wagemaker Wolverine (Aluminum edition). Aluminum is a tough metal to paint and maintain. Layers will help but beaching a "paint job" will always scratch or damage the paint. The best thing to do is create a paint job that is easy to touch up. The base coat on aluminum should be a self-etching primer, this creates a base for the top layers of paint to adhere to. Rustoleum makes a good self etching primer. The top coats (at least 5)can be as simple as spray from the can, a professional job, or something in between like Majic Town and Country Implement paint from Tractor Supply (yes, its roll-on).
