Here is the official Case Color chart...In the past there has been some debate if there is a difference between Power Red and Flambeau Red, Included is a pic of the desert sunset color. I have included this at this point so each member would know if there is a difference and if the difference can be seen...

When I was spraying the Color I thought there was no difference, but examining the empty cartridges at the end of the spray session reveals there is a big noticeable difference...here is the proof..

Exclusive GTTalk Photo...tomorrow I'll shoot the pic with my camera not the phone and I'll update the link...

On the Left is Power Red....Middle is Flambeau Red and Right is Desert Sunset

The only color out of these I haven't found in cans is Flambeau...but I am sure you could have some 'cans' made up for ya

...and this post is one they don't have in the other forums...they have no proof that the colors are different...Here at GTTALK we have visual evidence...

EDIT: dstaggs the Flambeau is available in cans from many New Holland dealers. I'll get you the part number and a pic of the can later today...

The Flambeau appears to be a bit darker.

you're right Kenny, a lot of folks have thought that the colors were identical...and I sprayed both yesterday, I told my buddy when I was shooting them there was no difference, the he says 'oh, ya? What is this?' So I snapped the photo so the folks on GTTalk would know first hand that there is a difference...and to your point it is a bit 'darker'

I have shot Flambeau red in the past. It is my experience that it is much brighter when it dries. That is backward from most colors, I agree, but in my experience it is true.

Is this an actual debate in the community?

The power red is available from Messiks for $15 a quart. Looks close enough to me. If you're doing a rattle can paint job I doubt you would care about this small difference.

As promised here is the TISCO part number and a wheel with the Flambeau color...Yes the colors are similar but not identical...so if you're gonna do something (paint) why not do it once and do it right? Just makes sense the paint is out there and available...Not like you have to use a custom high quality auto paint...

Simply turned out gorgeous...

Heres a tip, The paint in the new rattle cans will rinkle the old paint if spray over it, so be careful spraying over old paint. 190forklift.

BTW, the reason why it may wrinkle the old paint is that the thinner used in the cans is much "hotter" than normal thinner, the paint in in the cans is also thinner to be able to spray through the can, so the thinner must be hotter to set up quick so as not to run as much, anyone who uses rattle cans on a restoration is probably doing more harm than good, or at the very least wasting their time, and causing the next person a lot of trouble removing it.

Not sure what you are painting but just a little info-discussion on MTF-Flambeau Red went out in 1969 for the garden tractors. With the style change for 69-70 they went to power red and desert sunset. The early 80's the desert sunset was dropped and they went to all power red.
