I use the federal yellow Iron Guard from Case/IH for my cubs.
It's a good paint, sorry, can't help you on the JD color.
my experience with the Iron Gard is awful. I guess NAPA can mix it in their paint line. I might try their paint next time.
As long as I'm painting a whole tractor if I'm off a shade or 2 it aint a big deal.
I went to a tractor show this past weekend where exhibitors had multiples of Cubs side by side, and though they were all yellow and white, one next to the other was a slightly different shade from the one next to it, and each looked just fine.
Now if one were to do a spot repair with the shade of yellow that was used on the machine next door, yeah/ that would not have looked good for show conditions. or a faded 40 yo machine that has been touched up here or there.....
I was wondering, is Federal Yellow the same as OSHA Safety Yellow? How about School Bus Yellow? Yeah I know, one batch to another or one brand to another might be slightly off..... Again as long as I am doing a complete machine, and "that" whole machine is the same shade of yellow throughout, "close" will wind up good enough.
Iron Gard Federal Yellow is only available at the dealer. I want paint that I can get more readily than having to go to the closest IH dealer, which is in a direction that I almost never head from here....
