Anyone have a real good match for the HT-23 Green & White ? <br />I tried some Krylon Hunter Green it's somewhat close, but not perfect. <br /><br />If this don't belong here, feel free to move it.

Feelin' like a "newbie" here, working on my 1st Bolens rebuild. :wave:

 

'86 Eliminator 1402, green 'n white. Are there any Rustoleum colors? I use a lot of Rustoleum Regal Red on my Wheel Horses, rattle can. Have had good results.

 

One other item of interest. Any supplier of decals?

I think the closest stock color of rustoleum would be the hunter green but it is actually too dark. This would be one of those colors you would have to get custom mixed somewhere....

I can't remember for sure ,but either Sherwood Williams or miller paint will match your paint and put it in a spraying device that let's you spray any color you want . It works just like a spray can. I have used these one time and it worked well. Great for doing touch up.

Does anyone know what the color is for a 1053 body and frame? Also the red used on the wheels and mower deck?

I would prefer to use the brand Majic tractor, implement and truck paint sold thru TSC.

When I first started painting these tractors I used rustoleum on my projects but now that I have more experience with paints I am using Automotive paints.

I hope to eventually have codes for all automotive paints for popular Bolens tractors but its a slow process and expensive!

 

The closest rustoleum brand paints are Canvas white and regal Red (The regal is a bit too dark but a close stock color)

The entire 1053 was white except for the wheel's , decks were red in this time period as well.
