    If it's manufactured for John Deere by Valspar it is most likely an alkyd enamel (It may say on the can somewhere). If it is typical alkyd enamel and you try to use acrylic enamel reducer or polyurethane reducer, the results will be sub-standard. Aside from getting a finish quality that is not what you want (orange peel, dry spots, etc.), the paint may have a tendency to chip, scratch, and/ or peel easily. If you go to an automotive paint store and ask, they should be able to supply you with a compatible reducer for the temperature you are spraying in.

    I'm not sure if it's still available, but R-M used to make some stuff called Star-Rock. It was a catalyst hardener made especially for alkyd enamel; it improved the durability and life of the enamel. Good stuff.

    I painted this with J/D Blitz Black using there reducer and hardner your better off using as low a presure as you can as was said earlier the problem is the paint is drying before it gets to the car. If it is already rough finish you will have to sand it down or your next coat will look the same.

    Nice car. That thing would be killer with a straight axle under the front - gasser style...

    Already sanded down waiting to decide which is the best way to tackle my problem. This is starting to drive me nuts.
