I've got a Cub Cadet with 30 hrs. use on the deck. I took it off to clean it
up last fall and couldn't believe the rust and pitting that had already
started after just one season.
Question is can anybody recommend a type of paint to use on the deck?
I'm thinking RustOleum but somebody mentioned that the spray on truck
bedliner stuff is good?
Any thoughts on paint and primer?
At least once a season, usually as part of the Winter storage thing, I
take off the blades, clean the deck with a lot of water and a wire brush,
and spray Rustoleum where needed. I don't use a primer.
From the world of Jeeping, a lot of folks put down the herculiner stuff as a
protectant. Primarily used
inside the vehicle although a number have installed it outside and in the
wheel wells etc... Supposedly with
good results. Another product you might look for is called POR-15. This
is basically a paint that locks the
rust down and prevents it from expanding. A lot of folks in the 4 Wheeler
world swear by this stuff.
I've always just gone the Rustoleum route myself but then again, I live in
15% humidity pretty much year round.
