I am restoring two DB's. I was having a problem finding the correct paint codes. While dismantling four I bought from a member. I discovered the perfect colors for matching the paint.
On the wheels . As I was taking off all of the tires the correct color was under the tires. I took the wheel to a auto paint supplier. They matched it using paint chips in a paint catolog. The wheels are not blue as stated everywhere on the web. The pics below will show what I came up with.
Yesterday I was taking all the diffs apart. After removing all of the serial number tags I again found the gold paint never exposed to the elements, I stripped 4 tractor for parts two 59's a 60 and a 61 The 59's were a different gold then the 60 and 61. The 59's were more of a copper color. The 60 and 61 are gold. I will take these to the same paint store and get them matched and mixed.
If anyone is interested I will post what they come up with. I have a fith tractor which is a 60. I bought it for $500.00 for the electric start which wasn't factory for that tractor. It is the lighter gold unlike my 59's, I left it together and will keep it until the 59's are complete then it will be sold as it is. It runs perfect. I am keeping the factory choke cable.
Here are some pics of the wheel paint and the parts tractor to be sold cheap when the others are done.
