Dont mind the novice question. When you paint and powder coat how is the color match between the two? In other words, if I chose IH red paint for my next wheel horse, would the powder coat / paint match? I never saw it done before and many times considered doing it. Btw,,,,your work is superb. I really learned plenty watching you go through the cub. Real pro job. Thank you. A great learning experience.
Thank you for the compliment . As for the powder coat matching the paint, you can have your sandblaster/powder coater provide sample plates for you to compare against your existing painted parts . Try to compare them in bright sunlight as that's where any differences would show up . My supplier has matched the Cub Cadet yellow spray paint exactly . I was also lucky in that my local Ace hardware store had a Rustoleum Appliance white epoxy paint that matched the white powder coated parts exactly . All of the fastener heads on my 104 have been painted with Cub Cadet yellow as have the transmission case and engine case . The match is great and even in bright sunlight there is no difference in painted or powder coated surfaces .
I hope this answers your question . I'll be glad to supply the paint part numbers , but depending on who supplies your local powder coater , they might have a different part number than mine does .
