I don't know if the Rustoleum Fern green can be had by the quart. All I've seen is rattle can. The red is Rustoleum "Safety Red Professional". That came from Lowe's. They do have that be the quart. I wasn't concerned with trying to get an exact match. The Safety Red looks so good I didn't care. I've tried other Safety reds and they didn't look nearly as good as the Rustoleum. The original paint an my tractor actually had a slight orange look to the red. I think DB had several paint suppliers over the years so, the colors varied slightly.

Thanks for the information.

I'll just go ahead and paint the rims with a rattle can and then spray the rest of the tractor.

 

Thanks again for the help.

They did, the greens varies also, Fern green, Grabber green, Dutze Allis green are the common choices for the variations.

Personal taste, for rattle can we have used Rustoleum banner red, nice deep red, i also like the safety red.

Have yet to find a red with the orange touch for the later tractors.

I know the local automotive paint store has a machine that computer matches if you bring a panel into them but that paint is $$$ My wife and I went to Lowes one time looking to match a stain for our oak  kitchen cabinets , I was waking around with one of the door and a sales man asked if I needed help , I told him I was trying to match the stain ,, holding the sample charts next to my door ,  he walked over and said " this is an old door , ( he was right 30 yeras old )  you can't get this with those stains but I can blend one for you "   He mix a quart of Cabots stain with some other tints and he was spot on !!  I made new cabinets and you can't tell which are new and which are old . I wonder if they could do the same by tinting an quart oil base paint ?
