Spraying Valspar Tractor Paint with Purple Harbor Freight HVLP Gun
Spraying Valspar Tractor Paint with Purple Harbor Freight HVLP Gun
Spraying Valspar Tractor and Implement Paint with the purple Harbor Freight HVLP spray gun is an inexpensive way to get a good looking durable paint job. In this video you’ll get plenty of tips on how to do it.
Can you post the ratio’s paint to thinner , I know you showed it it the video be much nicer to friendly to show in the cups
I love this. I really, really love this! Love to see spray painting.
Love watching your videos keep up the great work. Once was told you could thin this paint with lacquer thinner and it would dry faster have you tried to do this before?
Will this ratio work with an electric paint sprayer? With tractor paint do you need to do a primer coat?
Nice job for cheap paint and gun. Do you prefer the surface vertical to flat?
Just coming across your video. Curious what size compressor did you use? What is the cfm? You make it look easy. Thanks!
Looks professional! Like it!
It’s coming out a little thick, maybe needs to be a tad thinner? Did it require color sanding and Buffing to smooth out the orange peel?
Any thoughts on using a Wagner paint sprayer? Acceptable or not so much? Ty Jerry! 🦀
Should spray gun be cleaned between coats? !5 minutes would harden paint.
you are an excellent teacher
I just can’t find a color I like.
General question on technique- When painting an object such as this tailgate are you "triggering"? Do you keep paint and air flowing through each pass, release all the way to shut both off, or just release the color, maintain air, and pull the rest of the way when starting the next stroke? As new painter I find myself fully releasing, starting the air as I approach the edge to balance pressure, and fully pulling just before getting to part. Good or bad?
With your help I just got done with a month long’ish project on my Jeep. Using a 90 amp HF flux core welder put in 22 patch panels, both sides inner/outer rocker panels, both rear quarter panels, and did body work on one of the front quarter panels… Your videos helped tremendously!
Now I want to paint it flat black.. I have a hvlp sprayer. Was thinking about using the rust-oleum professional oil based. What activator/hardener should I use, can’t seem to find a rust-oleum one? Can I use krylon or valspar hardener with rust-oleum? What would you recommend? Thanks!
Come on worrying about replacement parts for a $10 buck spray gun. Now I thought I was cheap but my hat is off to you.
Incredible results with that cheap gun. I see guys using $700 guns and the results are no better than what I see here. Good results appear to certainly more attributable to the painter, not the gun. Awesome 👌
People talk crap about those cheap purple guns. But the first few times you use them they work great. Not as good as an expensive gun. But I can buy 10 of them. Use them each a few times. Throw one away, grab another. I still get good results and I’m still not spending anything near what I would buying an expensive name brand gun.
A good painter can paint with any gun. A great painter can paint with a cheap gun and make it look like an expensive one.
Just like a good driver can do good in a race car. But a great driver can pass them in a piece of junk
Appreciated this clip as I just ordered Valspar for a tractor paint job. Thanks :+)
Yes you can click code over rustoli and I’ve already done it saying I’ve already done it same as a automotive paint it will hold it it will hold up for years UV Protection from the sun can give you an awesome shine the shine plus you can use pigment pearls that you can buy pearls that you can buy on the Internet very cheap to mix with your club if you want to add it in split screen clear if you want to add an effect to the paint job If you want to know more let me know I can shoot I can show you some videos of what I’ve done
Why do you spray from bottom up??
Great video! I subscribed
I have to say thanks for this mix ratio.my car came out awesome
Replacement parts are 10 bucks.
Hello, I liked your video. It gave me a lot of good info. Off question though, Do you happen to have 2 quarts of that Valspar 4432-01 that you may not use and want to sell?
Between the Naptha, acetone and min spirits, which would be best for gloss? Also, I am doing a project like this and will be adding some stripes, with that being said, would the acetone dry too quickly to unmask the stripes without the edges pulling up? Your thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanks
The harborfreight spray gun don’t work at that psi , I used that spray gun and start work at 50 psi and more
where did you get the paint?
Looks great! I’ve picked up a lot of good tips from watching your videos, thank you for your efforts in making them!!
Just wanted to say thanks for this info. I was shooting a vintage camper today with Valspar and your mix ratio and pressure setting was right on the money for me.
Ty sir very educational video Thupms up great paint job
Spray gun part shouldn’t be much of an issue considering the price, 1 part and shipping would most likely be more then purchasing a new gun.
I really like your videos, you are why I own a pogo stick as well.
I tried the harbor freight gun, it even sucked for sealer! Lol ! Sata isnt the best but at least it gives a great finish . Then again the low capacity of the harbor freight could be the nozzle size.
Where do you get the Valspar tractor paint? Local Farm and Fleet and Tractor Supply used to carry it, but no longer. I had heard that Valspar discontinued the tractor paint, and can’t find it on their website.
Have you used Harbor Freight electric paint sprayer. I am gong to use that but wanted to know if you used it.
Do you use a water separator between your compressor and gun? Ive only done one vehicle and had problems with condensation in my air hose.
Did you think 15 minutes between coats was enough? It was probably pretty wet still. By the way, all the information I could find on the HF gun said to use 40-50 psi at the gun….. I used 40 psi on a trial and it seemed to work great.
I use enamel paints and always just use acetone.
Slow down with the gun and it will cover better
Bout to do this to my 2 tone Ford with valspars anti rust armor.
Son, that hardener and all that bare skin is going to kill you , at least tell your people to not spray with bare skin exposed ,read the warnings !!!
LOL – at $10 (either with the coupons that have come back or pre-pandemic pricing) the price of a new spray gun is about what parts would cost these days. Thank you so much for the video – very useful advice for someone who doesn’t know very much at all about spraying anything but a couple rattle cans a year. I’ll give it a shot this year with some metal outdoor furniture.
I found replacement parts for the gun…..a new one for you guessed it….10 bucks
A larger air hose and high flow fittings would help with that hvlp gun
I just bought a $40 gun to use for primer. Should be testing it out in a few weeks.
Do you have to wet sand it afterwards and then spray with clear coat?
I am doing a majic tractor paint from a local farm supply store should I still use the same ratio method you are using or go with the one on the can? Thank you great videos!! 💯
Re: Some Valspar Tractor and Implement Paint I just ordered; … I am wondering if the Majic (brand name) hardner from my nearby Tractor Supply (easy option) would be compatible? or if RUST-OLEUM 7769-402 Professional Rusty Metal Primer would be an ok choice for my Tractor update. … Learning more all the time over here :+)
Can this be sanded and polished if need be?
