:welcome: mmaynard, to GTTalk.

We have a couple of Panzar folks here & I'm sure one of them will have some info for you.

By the way, I moved your post to it's own thread, it may have gotten lost on the end of an older one.

Oh my, what timing. I was just painting the notorious "tantalizing turquois" yesterday and can still see some of it on my fingers as I type.
Actually, I have the paint numbers saved in my cell phone so I never lose them. Sherwin Williams 45277-0. There are some old posts about a krylon shaker can color, but they don't make it any longer. I haven't seen a good match in shaker can lately. They can always make a spray can at some auto stores for it, but you'll only have the day to spray it.
I was just going to put a couple of pictures of the paint on my thread at http://gardentractor...read-2-a-11275/

Good luck

To answer this question with all fairness I will offer my experiences.

First of all I had my paint mixed here in Independence Missouri at ACE (Automotive Color & Equipment ) on 23rd street Independence Missouri. The problem is compliments of our governmemt you cannot get pre mixed paint shipped as easily as a few years ago. So here is what I did.

I wanted Naasons paint ( for durability) and took an old panel from the tractor into them. They used a camera and were able to use the photo they took and analyze it with their computer and make a formula that resulted in a damn close match. They then fine tuned ther formula to a perfect match.

I then bought enough paint, activator and thinner for 2 tractoprs and this was 2 years ago and paid right at $800.00. Was it worth it? I think so as they are still shining, and look wonderful. Is the paint match perfect? It is in my eyes, as there isnt any of the paint left and who is to say mine isnt the exact color.

So the moral of the story ; Dont look for a pre mixed paint. Take the hood, fender, tool box, battery tray anything with a good sample of the paint to a quality paint store and ask them to study it and mix what you need. Just be prepared to pay them for the quality paint and their time. The end result for quality paint will be well worth it.

PS: I am about to buy another 2 quarts for Panzer #3

Photos+photos+photos...Please share photos...
I've only seen FrankenPanzer and "His-n-Hers" finished in color.
1978Murry is just starting his project, so it will be awhile.
I've had yellow fever, red fever, and I'm afraid now its "tantalizing turquoise" gotta see more...

It took me a while to find the pictures here in the website but here are the first 2 completed. And yes I know I have one tire on backwards. It was rectified immediately

Hi everyone. I'm brand new to the site. I just signed up a few minutes ago. My dad has a red Pennsylvania Panzer and I have since gone out and collected four turquise Pennsylvania Panzers. I know from the threads everyone likes pictures, so as soon as it gets warm and I can dig them all out, I will post them. I read this thread and then called a Sherwin Williams store and they said the 45277 was not an existing paint code color. He said I would have to bring a part up with good paint so he can scan it and then mix it for me. I joked and said, "If there was good paint, I wouldn't be calling you." He didn't find that very funny. Is there a different part number, paint code or name this paint is hiding under. I called Jim at Dandy Sales. He said Napa has a rattle can available. I called Napa. Part # DE1643 is $5.69 for a 12 oz spray can. It is manufactured by Duplicolor. Anyway, I would rather buy it in a quart or gallon size if it is available from Sherwin Williams. Any help would be great. Thanks. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.

First off :welcome:to the forum Clint! Glad you found us here and joined in. I think you will like the friendly tractor nuts who call this home. As to the Panzer paint color see if the paint store can look it up by the name " tantilizing torquois " I beleive it is the same or very close to the 57 chevy torquois color. I painted my first restored Panzer with a Krylon teal colored paint in a spray can but that paint was discontinued around 6 or 7 years ago. The paint I had mixed up for my second Panzer I got from NAPA using Sherwin Williams number 45277 in an acrylic enamel. I hope this info helps you out.
Once again glad to have you aboard.

Yes, they may want to look up by name. Our Sherwin Williams dealer - make sure it's for Auto Paint got a hit on the number. If your local guy strikes out, have them call this place (another SW dealer) for help.

Hi again everyone. I called a different Sherwin Williams store, apparently there are separate stores between Sherwin Williams Automotive and Home paint. so thanks for the help and I am still working on those pictures. I am trying to dig out dad's without him noticing and get it running again. Kind of a Birthday surprise. He said he had it rebuilt about 10 or 15 years ago and used it very little since. He said they went oversize on the rebuild and actually had it "Blueprinted" and balanced. he said it took about a year to reassemble it and after that the carb gummed up and he never did much to it. I am wanting to do a "Tug of war" picture between his and mine.
