I can't find the thread. Someone mentioned the use of Power Clean De-Greaser as a prepping agent for painting over Powder Coat. IIRC correctly it was mentioned to spray the surface good, and let it sit 30 minutes, hose it off with water real good, then dry it well. It was said by doing this, it would basically etch the powder coat and give it some tooth for adhesion of the spray paint over top.

Is there anyone familiar with going about this method?
I plan to buy a couple spray cans of OEM Deere brand.

I wouldn't take a shortcut. The bigger issue is whether the new primer is compatible with the existing powder paint (you are going to prime it before color coat, right?). Test it first. if the powder coat does not chemically react (by softening and flaking off), then scuff it up with a Scotchbrite pad or 220 or 320 grit sandpaper before repainting.

If it were me and this is a used part, I'd take it somewhere for sandblasting to completely strip the old finish and start from scratch. A paint stripper with MEK might also do the trick if you want a completely DIY solution.

If this is a new part, why bother?

You should be able to clean it, scuff it, clean it, paint it. As Al said test a spot. When I powder coat over something that has powder on it I use alcohol as the cleaner. Other products have left poor results.

A sandblaster will want big bucks to take a powder coating off. It either needs to be dipped in chemical or sandblasted forever. It doesn't come off easy, hence it's popularity as a coating. Powder for coating is usually a polyester based plastic electrostatically charged to stick to the substrate and melted on.

For a little time and minimal cost, I'd try your spray bomb method first...and I do a fair amount of powder coating.

I can say I know a little touch up with a spray can doesn't bother the powder coating any. I know for a fact that JD green and yellow works over all JD match powder. Hey sometimes things need a bit of touch up.

I agree. If it's Tarter then it's probably yellow, right? Why paint it? Yellow is more visible anyway so you'll be less likely to hit your head on it or wack it into things backing up. It's a boom pole.

Wait a couple years until the cheap powder coat starts to flake and fall off and then you can repaint it.

It's a boom pole. :)

This.
I'm not sure why everyone wants their implements to color match.

It' that AC/DC thing Kenny...loll.:laugh:
Yes, I get that...more than you know.
But to repaint something that's brand new just does not make sense to me. If it was pulled form the weeds and all rusty then yeah prep and paint away-but I still like to keep things the OEM colors.

I chalk it up to boredom, mainly. What I save in buying used, I spend in time and materials to change colors, that are nowhere near as durable compared to buying what's already true colors.

I say it's yours do what you want.

I wouldn't ask Kenny about getting it zinc coated and then painting over that. He might be a little sensitive about that.:laugh:
