I'm working on a spring painting plan for a 52 Ferguson.

I have been doing a lot of reading on degreasing, cleaning, prep, prime and paint but still have some questions.

- All sheet metal will be going to a body
shop for some metal work and paint.
- degrease and clean tractor.
- sand and wire wheel rust areas to bare
metal.
- prime ( my questions)
- Paint using an acrylic enamel.

Questions.
After cleaning rust areas to bare clean metal what should I prime thoes spots with to avoid flash rust while working on the rest of the tractor? I will be doing this over several day/weeks. If I use epoxy primer I'll miss the window and have to sand those areas before painting or is there an alternative I'm missing?

I wasn't planning on taking the entire thing to bare metal. What primer should I be considering to use to go over the cleaned and primed areas and the old paint that will work well with the acrylic enamel top coat?

Thanks in advance for your responses
Bob

if the body shop is going to do the paintwork, ask them what primer they want on it so it is compatible with the paint they are applying.

I'm applying the paint to the tractor. I'm looking at acrylic enamel. They are only doing the sheet metal.

I agree with glennster, have the body shop tell you what primer to use. They may even rather have a bit of rust than have you prime it.

Go to the hardware store and get some Phos-Pho. Its sold in a gallon or quart. Put it on the bare metal and it will keep it from rust for about 30 days. Its cheap and its clear and you can spray it on with a bottle sprayer. Thats what we use in our shop if we are working on something like that. It keeps from having to sand the primer back off. Remember if you are priming bare metal, you have to put etching primer or epoxy primer on bare metal or it will come off. There may be an industrial Direct to Metal paint option but if you are restoring and using an automotive paint to have good gloss, use etching or epoxy primer. Just my opinion.
