hey guys , I know the what paint is a best match question has come up countless times before, but here it is again....after doing some research on multiple forums , duplicolor chevy orange/ red de1607 keeps being mentioned as a good match for the gravely orange.... I bought a can yesterday , but it seemed like it is just a slight bit too red .....anyone have any other suggestons on other paints that'll match ? (white also) thanks in advance!

When you say it is too red, is it because what you're comparing it to is faded?

 

Also, what year or model are you painting?

I have read that the Gravely red used from 1962-1980 fades to orange, whereas the red before that darkened as it got older.

Here's a pretty good reference.

I've heard the same thing as Cat.

 

I have three different cans of the chevy red/orange in my shop right now and they are very different from each other. Two are duplicolor brand and the third is rustoleum high heat engine paint. I've also read that Kubota orange is a good match, confused yet?

My local NAPA has a paint chip booklet gravely is in there too. It's for mixing paint for heavy equipment and if you have the means to spray it you can get a quart mixed up pretty cheap. And it should be right.
