So now that we have the colors for 1957-1960 figured out I think its time to tackle the earlier years (1948-1956)
The paint used this time period was non metallic and used a lighter green and more of an orange color for the Yellow
Something interesting I found while looking at a service bulletin dated 56' was that Bolens actually referred to their what we thought to be "yellow" paint as Orange!!
I have yet to determine what year this color green actually started but i have been able to trace it back to 1948.
I do have a few NOS parts to work with but would like people who may have something else in NOS or a good sample of original paint from a machine during these years to please post pictures here.
I'm especially interested in any Ridemaster samples as I have seen a ton of people paint them a dark green or use Oliver green but something tells me that is not right.
Here's a couple samples I have of an all original 1955 Super Versa-Matic.
Note the difference between the newer NOS metallic green Disc I have attached compared to the non metallic lighter Green.
