Hi all, wondering what white paint you used for the bolens tractors.
I’m looking white for my 1053 and wondering what you guys have used in the past.

check the top of the forum page - one topic dedicated to paint colors - better question may be what's available in your area as most of the colors are available in the US, maybe not in Ireland....have you checked with your local paint shops to see if they can 'color match" from a sample bit of paint?

I have not got much original white paint left, it was all repainted red by the original and previous owner. So getting a floor match would be hard to do

I think Brian (Bolens1000) started a post for the paint codes a couple years ago. Shouldn't be that hard to find.

 

 

Aaaannnd  Bingo!

 

Quite the collection of paint codes and color matches.

any chance of some white left "under" something? under the seat, where pieces of sheet metal meet/overlap?  looking at the various choices for "white", how "original" does it need to be? unless it's next to another restored 1053, one of the previously listed whites should work...just some thoughts

I’ve found on the clutch pedal some clean white. I want it looking nice, not perfect but nice
