About the easiest I think would be to DA that with 80 grit to get down thru the flaky paint and get to a solid base..I do not think it would be needful to go any further than that..

Then shoot a coat of surfacing primer and sand that with some 320 wet..that fills the 80 grit scratches..and then shoot the flat black..Should come out smooth and look fine..

Your tractor paint in flat black should work to keep you in materials that you know and are comfortable with..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
