I was in Home Depot today and saw a new color from Rustoleum called Tuscan Sun. I thought it looked close to my old AC B-112, so I grabbed a can to see. Looks almost dead on, what do you guys think?

Have you tried spraying any?  The caps rarely match the contents.

Close enough, paint it...

That Rustoleum brand is good paint.

I'll try to spray a can or something and take a side by side shot next to the best spot of original paint I can find. Thanks for the welcome. The tractor was my grandfathers. I have a rototiller and turn plow for her. I hope to clean her up a little in the next few months.

Sometimes you can un-bolt a bracket or other part and expose un-faded paint. The cap looks pretty close, but I agree with AC mower guy, I would try it on a piece of scrap metal and compare that, rather than just going by the cap.

And welcome to the forum by the way.

The paint is just slightly less orange than the cap. I will post pics next to tractor in a bit. Off to mow the lawn first!

I think I'm going with it. Close enough for my purposes (a user, not a show queen) and only $3.68 per can.
