I've never used much of SW's products mainly because of the availability of Dupont and it's use in the auto industry. I was pleasantly surprised to find that SW's DTM (Direct To Metal) epoxy primer PSE2110 (Grey) to be a very good primer. It sprays well and has excellent coverage.

I used 8ozs. of primer and 8ozs. of reducer plus 1.5ozs. of activator for a total spayable mix of 17.5ozs. to spay the items in the picture. One coat was used with total color holdout.

I got the primer package on clearance because I was "just painting tractor parts" but this is nice paint! It leaves a nice velvet-smooth finish in semi-matte.

This is expensive stuff if you buy it retail ($200+ for the gallon package) but if you can find a clearance sale, you can save 75% or more. Or find someone that just bought a gallon. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Very nice Ken. Is the upper pipe portion detachable?

The round tub on the FEL frame is part of my ROPS. It's welded to the uprights. With the FEL mounted on the tractor, the top bar is only about 6 1/2 feet high. Plenty of clearance for my use--The barn has 10' doors.

Just came in for lunch. Shooting color today! Later...

I asked because I was wondering if you allowed for clarence - you have, 6.5' should work for most doors.
