    Default Snowblower (Deere Model 49) Restoration

    Hello,
    I probably didn't get this post into its appropriate sub-forum or whatever. I apologize if this is in the wrong spot

    Anyway, my question:

    Just finished sandblasting and priming my snowblower. I am eager to get it all reassembled. I put on 2 coats of RustOLeum metal primer and so far 2 coats of the Valspar JD Yellow implement paint that Tractor Supply carries. My question is how many coats of paint would you guys apply? I was originally thinking I would put on many coats while its all apart and everything is easily accessible. But after 2 coats, it seems like plenty to me. And, I now remember that I #$ing hate painting

    Does this paint go on a little thicker than normal paint or something? Seems thick to me. I also did 2 coats of black high gloss implement enamel on the auger.

    So, more coats of paint or she's good?

    Thanks for any opinions!!
    Mike

    Mfreund, thanks for the reply. I did stop. She's 90% back together. And I took another look at the can, it's enamel, not paint. I don't know much about painting but assume that enamel is thicker? Makes sence now. So, everything got 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of enamel.

    That should be fine. Next spring, clean it up and check for chips and paint them. That's what I'm going to do with my blower that I just renewed.

    How about some pics?
