Plan, prep, prime & paint: step-by-step colour photos.
There’s something special about an old truck, tractor or implement; they overflow with honesty, durability and mechanical simplicity. When it comes time to repair or restore that equipment, you need the right paint and the appropriate procedures. How to Paint Tractors & Trucks explains the various paints that can be used to give that old Massey or Ford the bright shine that will make you proud. Whether the project is a simple freshening done on a budget, or a complete restoration intended for the show circuit, there are specific paints guaranteed to help you achieve the desired end result. From stripping the paint to the application of the body filler, primer, sealer and final topcoat, each step of the process is explained in detail. In-The-Shop sequences show hands-on how the components are disassembled, repaired, painted and assembled. For anyone who yearns to paint but lacks the paint booth and compressor, the book explains various ways to construct a simple booth that will reduce contamination, and also provide adequate air movement. And if you’re a little rusty on your gun handling, complete coverage of guns and adjustments is provided as well. Part of our mechanical history, those old tractors, trucks and implements deserve to be pulled from the grove and restored to their former glory for all to see.
