Not sure if here or elsewhere, I could not find Lobster Red (really orange) by Rustoleum  at Lowes Lumber or any where else on planet.  Was told NEaster's have that color, maybe it's a location thing?? I found the most colors at Menard's lumber in that brand. They had 4 colors of reds, bright orange and some burnt orange and natural colors that were only satin tho.  SO, won't be using that on my PK. Did find the A/chalmers colors that most say to use, and Chevy engine paint, which I have used before, and might again now. So, that lead didn't pan out as they say!

I'm using AC orange to do mine. I saw a couple of them painted this color and it looks good. If someone says they don't like it I will tell them to look the other way. Besides no one around my area has an Economy tractor to compare it to. I guess to each it's own.

Like I say, mine are used to work not to just be displayed.

I received some small, new, in the bag parts with my 24G Gravely, that I would bet is very close to what you are looking for.


The rest of the tractor, except under some bolted on stuff, no way the paint is way off, fade, etc,,, whatever.


BUT, those new parts are EXTREMELY close.




So, a Gravely color paint might be close!!??   :tapping_fingers:
