Below is the link to the actual paint codes.  The chassis is "Flint Metallic Gray", and the rims & grill are "Silver Mist".

For the Red - Krylon Banner Red is a match for the MF Red and is easy to get.

If you use a spray can, consider giving it a urethane clear coat to keep the red red and not pink

Not trying to hijack your thread but I'm in the middle of painting MF 1650 and realized the MF grey I got at the Tractor Supply is the old Ferguson grey from the 8N Ford look a likes.  Can anyone tell me if my wheels and grill should be Silver Mist and any spray can matches?  :hitting_self_roller:  :loosing_it:  :anvil_drop:

Yes, grill & rims "Silver Mist".  Platikote makes a "Steel Wheels" paint that is pretty much a dead ringer for silver mist.

Attachments should be red. That includes the 3pt or sleeve hitch.

I was a painter for 30 years, I take it it for granted that everyone knows types of paint, colors, and brands like I do, That's dumb

Just bought some Duplo-Color Silver and it had H in front of the # and would like to make sure it's the same.  It's a light silver metallic for wheels.  Anyone know?

Great tip.My little WH that I painted around 10 years ago faded and turned a nice dull Pink color.What a shame to,it had a glass smooth prep job and a super glossy shine to it.
