Also, Tractor Supply now carries the Majik line of tractor and implement paints. sell paint, reducer, and hardener. you could get an allis chalmers orange that would be close to the color of the general, it lays down quick and easy, is pretty durable, and with the hardener, helps add gloss. They even sell a rattle can of touch up. Painted lots of stuff around the shop and farm with it, mostly low gloss black. Been pleased so far.
saw that last night at TS. $30 a gallon and $15 for the hardener... definitely an option for a beater/work truck/farm truck type thing
