    I have used that paint with their reducer and hardener on three trailers. The hardener also adds a nice shine. Very pleased with the durability and finish. That said, I cannot comment on how it would look on larger panels. Very slick finish on the trailer frames though. I wouldn't use it on anything I expected to appreciate. Old farm truck yes.

    Ok, still havent shoot color yet, lovebugs slowed my work for about a month, plus demoing garage at MIL's, ect. I ran out of the plain gray majic shop primer, and got a gallon of Majic Sandable truck, tractor, and implement primer. It was listed at $19.99 on shelf at TSC, but rang up as $49.99, they checked shelf and sold to me for $19. Got home, looked online, it is $49.99, so I was thinking this Must be good stuff.

    Very unimpressed with it. Took about two hours to get it mixed up, took twice as long to dry, was shiny, hard to sand, got runs easily, and orange peeled like a son of a gun. On top of that, it wasn't particularly good at build up compared to the cheap can.

    I've used the local Western wear/Tractor Parts store tractor/implement paint, hardener and reducer (not Majic Brand) with good results. I really like using Ospho on bare metal prep work. I think it makes the paint stick better. I'm in the cheap corner as well. You'll be fine. bjr

    I just shot a flat black enamel from Tractor Supply on a trailer I am rebuilding...
    It is the Majic brand...
    I did not use the hardener...
    So far so good...
    The paint had to be really stirred well...
    Lots of solids in that paint...
    Covers well and a good price at $25/gallon...
    With a $10 Harbor Freight Special HVLP sprayer I don't see how you can go wrong...
    Mineral Spirits to clean up with and you are good to go...

    Hmmm...gloss black shows all imperfections. And inexpensive paint and primer won't make it any better. But it all depends on how fussy you are when you are done. I had a Unimog once and wanted to paint it on the cheap, so we painted it with an army green flat paint. It actually looked really good, since there was no issue of trying to get it shiny. And the little imperfections just sort of went away. I've done nice base/clear jobs before, and it is a lot of work and seems with all of that effort it is a shame to then put mediocre paint on it.

    We shot a metal sign with bright glossy red Majic and it looked pretty good, but was faded badly in a couple years. We then stripped it and did base/clear automotive grade paint and it looks glossy after 5 years, but cost tremendously more.

    The guy up the road hqd his truck painted with some cheap paint. It looked good for the first 2 years but the 3rd year (this year) it is starting to fade. It is his old work truck so I know it had never been waxed. The truck is maroon. I think the red color family is the worst for fading.

    Ok, minor update on the high build sandable primer. I recleaned gun, piece by piece, left soaking for 4 days, cleaned air line filter, made sure my primer was absolutely mixed. It laid down much much nicer this time. Funny how a clean gun and good air supply make such a difference.

    Now... is it $49.99 good, well not to me... if I had to pay that I would have been fine with the cheap $19.99 gray shop primer.

    I bought two quarts of Ford blue and two rattle cans of acrylic enamel from the dealer. I used some of the spray can paint this past weekend after overhauling the steering cylinders on the 3910. I was really impressed with this paint. It had good color holdout and dried fast. Can't wait to try the quarts. I have used the old Valspar paint from TSC before and I wouldn't use that stuff on garbage cans. The color (yellow) faded in less than six months to a chalky cream color . I'm a little gun shy on the Majic paints so be sure and keep us posted.

    I have used the Majik paint for quite some time. I have used the Cub Cadet White for wheels with great results and the Matte Black on engines and frames. It doesn't work well on sheet metal though, because as everyone said it fades pretty fast. I use automotive paint on sheet metal but it's not cheap. I don't like any of Majik's primer though. I use Rustoleum's Rusty Metal Primer. It adheres good to places that are hard to sand (like cast iron) covers in one coat and flows out very smooth. It doesn't have to be sanded and can be coated with any enamel based paint including urethane.

    By the way, I second the use of the Harbor Freight paint gun. It's spray pattern is perfectly sized for painting something small like a tractor. When you get them on sale for $9.99, it's cheaper to use them once and throw them away. I keep 8 or 10 on hand all the time.
