i figured for the price and considering this tractor is gonna be rode hard and put away wet, at least it will keep the rust off, its not a restoration, and according to the label, its made fromm 100% US grown soybeans. maybe if i use enough, beans will hit 12.00 a bushel!!!!!!!!!!

I think painting with a less expensive paint is ok if you are going to be working with it alot. If you have to touch it up, it easier and less expensive. I bet if you chip it, it would chip with the expensive paint too. I painted a street legal stock car I had with Farm store IH red paint and white Rustolum on the top. Drove it for 3 years then sold it. It was easy to repair and not expensive to paint. I would do it again in an instant.
