Sometimes by removing a bracket or plate, you find fresh paint underneath.

There are several favorites which have been used on these old tractors. 


Here are some links with the discussions:

Old Cat Yellow is a favorite for the late machines...it's so close a match, it's the only real option for aerosol work, and can save quite a bit of dough on bluk paint. 


AC New Yellow 925105/925106/925110 is the paint for a B-210 (Late B-100's through end of 200's...early 100's and prior, except for B-1 were AC Old Yellow).  I don't know of a mix spec if you wanted to have some made. 

I like Vansickle paints, though some say their alkyd enamels will fade from UV light, but I used it on my Squire and she's a barn queen, and for time it sits out at home and at shows...there has been no affect.  It's inexpensive and easy to use with a gun (I added hardener...no clear coat is necessary or recommended).  They also offer acrylic.  They were great to work with, and I sent in a well preserved piece of my squire for them to match.  They sent multiple samples my way, with different levels of metal flake for me to approve at no charge.


Van Sickle #CML-3025 is the paint of theirs for the late B's...their color "Yellow Riding Mower" is the B-1 AC yellow and is much too light for a B-212.



Here is paint info from Wells Implement.  I'll have to ask them, but they seem to vary on their website on when the thrid shade of yellow came into production.  Either way, it's the one you will use.




Omni Basecoat; a prophet version of Monte Carlo Yellow MBC83460

(This is a 2 coat process!)

(The first coat will be the yellow and it will be dull as primer, the second coat will be the clear coat and make it very shiny)

119 White 92.0-----92.0

114 Yellow 576.7--487.7

118 Black 582.0-----5.4

130 Orange 597.5--15.4

150 Basemaker 1195.0--597.5



For my use, I have only used Old Yellow (on my BIg Ten), and Old Cat Yellow (on some implements and late B series touch ups).  I've been happy with the Old Cat aerosols, but am not sure I'd use it for an actual full restoration . I would have to have things 'right' if going through all that effort again.  I used Industrial Touchups paint #94857 for my Big Ten.  Their product #94858 is appropriate for your B-212.  They do a nice job also, and you can order aerosols from them.

I had my early B112 paint matched of an interior panel at Farrell-Calhoun. This was their match.

Farrell-Calhoun industrial gloss enamel
Neutral base 857
Unfortunately I never got to paint the tractor, but I did brush paint a couple of implements.

This is not quite right for late machines but is closer than Old Cat Yellow.
