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.

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/

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

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
