Anyone have experience with hammer tone paint? Do's n dont's? >>

I once picked up about a  half dozen virgin grey hammer tone rack panels at
a hamfest, each with the protective paper still intact.

 IMO, hammer tone has to be the ugliest finish ever concocted, nothing I
would  want to see on any of my equipment, so I re-painted them all black
wrinkle.  I brushed on a thin coat of liquid stripper AKA "deglosser" over
the original hammer tone finish, just enough to soften the surface and make
it slightly tacky. Then I sprayed on two heavy coats of black wrinkle  and
laid the panels out in the warm afternoon sun. When the wrinkles had
thoroughly formed, I brought the panels back inside to finish drying . The
original hammer tone paint made an excellent primer for the black wrinkle.
