Thanks John

Its CORLUX Tractor Enamel. I bought 2 gallons of it it from a guy on adverts.ie who was selling off old stock he must have bought in a job lot. It dries quite well it's slow but it's a trade off with how well it flattens out. About 48hr to harden normally. I brush some and spray some but overall the finish is quite good. The dash was brush painted and you can see how well it flattened as it dried

Just the reason I ask is the paint I used is easy mark it even though it's been painted 3 mounts ,my finger nail is enough to scratch it but I believe it's a year before enamel dries out.atvb john

I think they're all the same to be honest, used to use Tractol to paint it but it's been a long time since I've used it so I cant remember how much different it behaved to the corlux. Plus the corlux was 20e a gallon from memory so I wont complain about it

2K paints are the preferred way to go for show tractors I think. Finish is better but they're a lot more expensive and the shine on the finish isnt to everyone's taste
