I stripped and repainted my 782 front rims with some nice valspar indoor/ outdoor latex paint. Let them out to dry and maybe some dew or moisture, I don’t know. I got a bunch of super tiny brown spots all over the freshly painted rim. What is happening here? And what can I do to stop it? Thanks.

(One time came out fine, the other has the spots. The inside of both rims are also fine.)

Not sure if latex paint is even recommended for outside use let alone on metal. Certain types anyway. Maybe I'm wrong but I've wouldn't have used it.
Well. Got up early and stripped again. And used proper spray paint. Looks nice. I’ll be getting new tires very soon so I do not care about over spray

I break the bead loose and tuck the cardboard in there.
You got a picture of the method? I'd love to see it for future projects!

Not even close to done. But painting and things as such have been difficult recently. But, later this summer. I will be transforming this 782, to a 782T.

I am going to turbocharge my Briggs opposed twin 782. I have an entire plan setup. And a bunch of space to work with under the hood. Love it or hate it, I am going to make it as clean and stock looking as possible.

The turbo setup will need a new exhaust system. I will have a conjoined exhaust pipe. So the 2 sides are connected. Then I will drill a hole through the top of the conjoined pipe. Weld a bracket on top of that hole, bolt the turbo’s hot side on. Then, simply make some PVC pipe go from the intake side, to the air filter box. I will have to tune the carb, but it is not meant to be an actual boost in power. Just function enough to move air into the air box. I will be making an oil setup as well. More to that later.

The design/ blueprints are still a big work in progress. A lot of welding and manufacturing will be involved in this, but it’s a distant dream that I’ll make come true.

Let me know your thoughts! Good, or bad. All welcome. Thanks

(Goal is to get a “turbo” decal like on the IH 1466)

Did you prime the paint?
Nope :LOL:. Usually I get away with it but not this case. I primed my new paint, then brush painted over to have a good solid off white. Looks pretty good

Turbocharging is a strange idea for that tractor. Not saying it's a bad idea, but I wouldn't do it. But if you want to, here is an exhaust system I did for a opposed twin:
God I love opposed twins. That one in particular sounds amazing!

Seems you corrected your problem, but latex paint is not for metal. The rust will always bleed through. Oil based, or solvent based is what is needed, and it should be primed with a primer that has etching properties. I’m always happy to help, but didn’t see this post till now.
I primed, and painted with oil based spray paint. Then over the spray paint, I used the latex paint, to have an accurate paint match. Having no issues with that setup
