This guy I know told me to not waste my money on John Deere paint because that I could go to NAPA and that they can mix the classic green that I buy from John Deere a lot cheaper and that it just as good. What do you guys think thanks.

I don't agree at all. The paint at NAPA will be much better quality for probably no more money.

I tried to look up what kind of paint it was but they are keeping it a secret. The JD paint is probably an alkyd enamel which isn't that much different than enamel house paint. NAPA will carry automotive paints which should last two to three times as long as an alkyd. It won't be a cheap but when you consider how long it will last is a better deal.

The John Deere paint is a good enamel, especially with hardener, as I have used it.

My preference is NAPA paint, but it is several times more expensive.

If you have the budget, Napa paint is a better choice.

The NAPA will probably be at least double per gallon but is worth every penny if you have the budget, which you should if you are doing a project in the first place.

It will also be more dangerous to work with, respiratorily speaking.

On the paint that your going to use you can look it up on the computer by typing in your paint numbers and type in MSDS. This will tell you what is in it.

I have been using 2K urethane out of the Nason line by Dupont. They give you close to automotive paint performance at half to a third of what many automotive paints go for. Far better bang for your buck than implement paint at the tractor dealer. If you are going to just clean up and spray, however, it makes no sense to spend extra money on good paint.

I'd hope it gives you automotive paint performance since it IS automotive paint...

Which post?

Your first post in this thread said "I don't agree at all" and then you proceeded to imply some of the same points as the OP, thereby agreeing in some ways. It is not possible to be in total disagreement while still maintaining any original point made by the other party as true. The essence of the OP could be captured as "buy NAPA paint since it is better for negligible cost difference, if any" and you made the same point, yet somehow in disagreement.

Your second post (the one I poked fun at) said "They [Nason] give you close to automotive paint performance at half to a third of what many automotive paints go for." See, what you have done here is not only make a price comparison specifically to the pool of more expensive automotive paints, but you have also compared Nason's performance to he entire pool of automotive paints and have deemed said performance as less than that of the entire pool. Since the entire pool to Nason would include itself, the claim logically boils down to "it cannot perform as good as itself" which cannot be true.

There was no lack of understanding, only sarcasm that seems to be lost on some people.

Do you think the sarcasm in my original post or in this current one was misunderstood by anyone else?
