Ace Stop Rust Paint

Post by SubieTrav on April 21st 2012, 9:46 pm

Has anyone worked with Ace tractor and equipment paint? Is it already thinned enough right out of a can, or should it still be thinned more.

I went to Ace to see about getting some Burgundy to finish rolling on my Legacy. They said they couldn't mix it and then said It can't be ordered. So I grabbed a couple cans of Ace Stop Rust oil based International red gloss. The paint out of a can was like water, I thinned it about 50/50 with MS. When I started painting it on the car it literally ran like water. I noticed on the can it said do not thin. The first was tacked in less than an hour, so I rolled on a second coat. This time I added more paint to the very water thin mix I already had left and rolled the second coat. The Second coat went on much better.

I won't use Ace rust stop again. Too many bubbles to deal with and it dries to a matte finish. Rustoleum is a far superior product!

Yeah I agree. Precisely Smile

It looks blotchier when polished too! I'm using my leftover for a satin black look on my bicycle though so it won't feel like a waste to buy rustoleum after buying ace stuff
