Picked up a quart of CNH enamel today so my weight box will match my fenders that were painted by the P.O.. Question is, what do I thin it with for spraying? It says it's an enamel so I'm thinking lacquer thinner. Figure you guys would know better then me. Thanks!

You don't use lacquer thinner to thin enamel. Use their thinner if at all possible. If not available you might be able to use something like mineral spirits or naphtha. More than likely it shouldn't be thinned with anything at all. You should try it full strength first before considering thinning and if you do thin it keep the thinner at a minimum. If you thin enamel too much it's very prone to run.

When I painted my Super M I used the Case IH paint and their reducer and Valspar hardener. Came out good, liked their paint.

Xylene or toluene will work well if it needs thinning. Most enamel reducers are a mix of those two. Xylene is the slower drying of the two.

Spoke to CNH today and they tell me that I don't absolutely have to use their reducer. An off the shelf one will work just fine if it's for enamel according to them. I have almost a full pint of the Majic brand reducer leftover from when I did the tractor a few weeks back so I think I'll try it if I do in fact need to thin it down. We'll see how it goes.

That is horse hockey.

I used the same paint with NAPA reducer.

The advice here seems to concur.

tom, generally the dealer tractor enamel is a modified alkyd enamel industrial type coating. if you know your products, you can get away with mixing materials from different paint lines. but........for a new painter, i would recommend you stay in the paint line that you select and use their products. some products form other paint lines do not play well together, and if a problem develops, you are on your own. been around paint for 40 some odd years and own an autobody shop. lot of horror stories of science projects gone wrong. too much prep work and cost involved to paint something and cut corners on materials. some of the custom paints we shoot here at the shop can run 2000 dollars a gallon.

As I'm sure you have primered the piece you intend to paint and/or it already has some paint on it...you either are probably using enamel primer or the paint already on it is enamel. Use lacquer thinner over it in any way and you will see how "paint stripper" works real quickly. An economy enamel reducer fro any automotive store will suffice. Not Home Depot stuff.
