Ok I have a new old stock Bolens Plow for my 1250 (the dark green color). The frame that came with the new plow is primered but not painted. Where do I get the original green paint (what kind and color is it) so it will match the shiny new plow :D

The plows for the 1250 were red or yellow. Most likely your plow is a newer one and it should be like forest green in color.

Yeah it was the one on ebay. I am local to the place so I picked it up there! So does anyone know what paint brand or number would match?

I think your probably going to have to get the paint custom mixed.
Usually if you take a sample to a local auto parts store they can get a pretty good match for you

When I did the hood trim on this GT2000 i looked for the darkest green I could find and it still wasn't dark enough.
