The very informative website here (http://members.lsol....P4EVR/paint.htm) said that Deutz-Allis spring green is a close match for David Bradley walk behind rims. 

 

I work for an old Deutz Allis dealer.  I can get all the paint I want there, but even my price as an employee is not cheap. 

 

Is it a close match or is it a make do? 

 

Someone also suggested Rustoleum fern green.

Oh, you stepping in the dog poo :wallbanging:  DB collectors has battled that out for the past 20 years.

I settled for cheaper Rustoleum auto paint Grabber Green. Fern Green was too light, to smash a fight over the green i mixed 40/60 (no gloss) auto paint and it came very, very close to Grabber green, lime green was too much.

 

For quality paint many guys have used Deutz Allis Green which i feel matches very closely to the original paint code.

 

Remember the gloss over coat was applied after the paint not with the paint so it was slightly different, the high gloss tended to change the look of the paint a little, without any gloss at all i think the Deutz Allis green and statin Banner Red or antique Farmall red looks very nice but that is just me.

I smelled what I was stepping in, but you know how inquiring minds want to know. 

 

I searched and read thread after thread this morning about it, but no one really gave me a satisfactory answer for yea or nay on Deutz green.

I hope to paint AC, Ford, Bolens, Cub Cadet, JD and Wheelhorse Tractors this year. I read these threads with interest because I am color blind. My wife and son give me different answers as to what matches on anything. The Ford and JD are easy, but everything else will be compromises. Good Luck, Rick

yes the spring green is a correct color to use, for some tractors. There were tractors like the model 51 and 52 that used a darker green, like Bolens had, but with out the sparkle to it. The seeders usually come in the darker paint also. There's isn't a locked down system to what color thing came by the yr, as my 1933 handiman had the spring green under the drive lugs.

 

I use the spring green from the Agco dealer, @ $12 can and Case IH red from Vansickle, @ $5 a can for most of the DB's here.  harder ones to match are the Seaton blue and the Nugget Gold of the riders.

I don't know anything about the paint, Deutz-Allies used in the USA. In europe, we had two Deutz "main green". The older looks darker, colder and the newer one looks lighter.

 

The older green has a RAL number (w/ this RAL number we define a color), the newer was a special DEUTZ paint, numbered 1974  (but: that's no RAL number). I think, the lighter green is the green shown on the DB site, Ben linked.

I painted the wheels on my 57556 with the Rustoleum Fern Green. The inside of the wheels still had good original paint to compare to and looked really close to me. I originally brought home the Grabber Green from NAPA but it was much too neon looking for me. The Fern green is about the closest I've seen for a rattle can option. I was very satisfied with the match. I guess it depends a lot on when your tractor was manufactured since DB likely used several paint suppliers. The same probably goes for the brand you choose too.

Here's my DB planter painted with the Grabber Green. Works for me.... Fertilizer hopper was missing years ago when I bought it, so removed the drop tubes. I don't use it anyway, if it were still there.

 

 Paint on the Super 3 is original. I'll leave it as it is. I prefer one's in this condition to let them keep their original work clothes. Gives them a little character in my mind...

Vstrom....thanks for posting pics of your tractor and stating the color used.

I can't imagine one looking any better than yours so I think I'll be using that color of green.

If I may ask, what color did you use for the red?

Are either of these colors available by the quart or are they only rattle can colors?

I don't have a problem using rattle cans but I know from painting my John Deere 110 that it can get really expensive if you two or three coat. 

If possible I'd rather buy a quart of each and do several thin coats since I have all of the equipment, (or at least my dad does).

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Dave
