Which Shade Of "ford Blue" Was Used On The Lgt Tractors?
Posted March 09, 2012 - 01:57 AM
As I have said before, I'm new to the world of Blue tractors! IIR, there were seveal different versions of "ford blue." (For example, there were at least 2 different John Deere green's over the years...). Does anybody know what the "official" color/shade was for these tractors?
I usually use Nason brand industrial 2 part paint for equipment, and they are pretty good at mixing to match factory specs, but I need to know which specs to use...
I don't want to use a rattle can paint. I like the durability of a paint with hardner added. Depending on the condition of the existing paint and damage, I may just respray the entire thing.
Thanks in advance!

I found some paperwork when the previous owner of our 195 had it painted. He used a "bermuda blue".
Michelle, how close is it to the Tractor Supply Blue, the thing with names is they end up with so many different formulations...

According to Dupont paints, "Ford Tractor" blue (they only list one) isn't the right color for us LGT fans. It is a much darker color. As I said, the piece I brought was a little faded, but it looks like the 205 (actually 5205 for Dopont's color charts) is the correct match. FYI, there are about 10 different "Ford blue" colors listed!
Weather permitting, I am gonna start cleaning the 165 up next week, and will post some pics as I go and as it gets painted...
