VALSPAR equipment enamel primer. I thought I had heard that Dealer-sourced IH
paInt was a Valspar product so I thought that would be the best base. For some reason I can only find true CC
yellow at the speakership. I have a few CC
's around here now, I have plans to just get one mechanically sound for the work horse and redo the other with #3 being a donor to the other 2 because it came to me so incomplete. Being as how I have never seen tractor show judges come around with paint samples in hand to tell if your paint match is perfect, especially considering that I am planning to strip the paint to bare metal and paint it from the ground up, as long as my particular unit matches itself 100%, I do not care if I wind up with a machine that's 1/2 a shade off of what was used on it 40 years ago. I see them at shows all the time that are"off" a bit from what is right next to whatever one that I am looking at, at that instant.
I am more concerned about durability and being able to match the color in the future should that happen to be needed.
I was thinking of using either Safety Yellow or else School Bus Yellow. But due to my particular experience with "Iron Gard" I won't be using it when I redo mine.
