I painted my 860 in 2008 using Van Sickle paints. However I used a spray gun and used hardener in the paint.
The tractor has been kept in a shed most of the time when not in use. It has scratches on the hood from running through brush and the run I left on it is also there! Overall the appearance is quite presentable.
If I paint my 2N it will be with Van Sickle paint. Others have had good success with other brands also. I do not believe you will get as good phone support as you can from Van Sickle!
Rattle can paint will not hold up anywhere near as long but you can always do it again.
