does anyone have a brand and paint code for the off white wheels on the EK10 and the red color on the EK7 wheels? I planning on replacing 12 tires and would like to refinish the wheels while I have them apart.

I was sorting through some parts today and found this nice NOS gem today that really reinforces the metallic cordovan (brown) paint. It was in original Bolens packaging and wrapped in newspaper dated May 18, 1965.

Ok guys i just talked with my paint rep at the warehouse an he tried multiple ways to get the code to cross into martin senour an there is no cross reference for the gold code number 22390 he said the best way would be to match it to a nos part or from one that has been covered in grease or out of sunlight. Hopefully someone can get a newer ppg number that might be able to be crossed over at any Napa.

Okay, maybe it's just me and I am missing something here, but it seems that there are quite a few paint codes missing for these Bolens tractors.  I came here looking for paint codes for my Bolens 1250 Large Frame and so far I have come up short on a lot.  I would like as exact of a match as possible (not Rust Oleum paint that is "close"...) to the original OEM Bolens paint colors.  Local body shop paint suppliers around here I believe have Sherwin Williams, TCI Products, Nippon, Limco, and/or DuPont/PPG paints.  So, any paint codes that will cross to any of these paint manufacturers would be helpful.

 

From what I have read in this thread, the only Bolens paint color that seems to have been properly matched and has a good paint code for it is the Bolens Cordovan Brown Metallic that was used on the frames and engines of many of the Tube Frames as well as the early Large Frames, like my 1250.  However, I am also in need of the paint codes for the wheels, body work (hood, fenders, etc.), and attachments for my 1250.  From what I have read, there also seems to be some confusion over what color the wheels are supposed to be for the 1250.  Some people say the wheels are red (which is the color of the wheels that came with my tractor anyways, so I think I will go with that anyways...) and others say the wheels are white.  I have also Googled pictures of the 1250 and some of the official Bolens literature even shows the 1250 both with white wheels and with red wheels.  I also noticed that the wheels and tires that came on my tractor are not the correct ones for the 1250 as they never made wide front and rear wheels for the 1250.  They had skinny tires on both the front and back of the 1250 throughout its entire production run.

 

I also haven't really seen that anyone has a good match for the Bolens white to use for the bodywork.  The best I have seen so far was a suggestion to use the Rust Oleum Canvas White color as it is pretty close.  Does anyone have the paint code for the actual correct shade of white for these tractors by any chance?

 

The next hurdle would be also matching the paint for the implements I have for my 1250.  The 48" mower desk is the Bolens green (that it looks like blackjackjakexxix matched pretty well for his dethatcher above and I believe that Bolens 1000 has also come pretty close in matching the color on some of his tractor projects...).  However, it looks like most people had the paint mixed to match the color and there is still not an exact paint code that can be used to purchase this paint.  Is this correct?  If the paint has to be mixed, does anyone have the correct formula that I can bring to my paint supply store to have them mix it without having to scan a color swatch to try to match the paint?  I also have a 38" Sno-Caster for the 1250 that is painted red.  Does anyone know if the implement color red is the same shade as the red that was used on the wheels of the Bolens?  If they are actually different, then what is the paint code for the implement red?

 

In general, were the 1250's painted with the same color scheme as the early Tube Frame tractors?  They look to be pretty identical to me, but I wasn't sure if there were any slight variations between them?  I am wondering if I buy a few gallons of paint for my 1250 if I can also use it to touch-up or re-paint my 850 after years of sitting?  (I painted my 850 about 4-5 years ago when I redid the whole tractor, but I stupidly cheaped out and used the Majic Tractor, Truck, and Implement paint from Tractor Supply to paint the tractor with.  It didn't even really look all that good after I was done painting it and I could see a lot of orange peel and waviness to the paint.  Now, several years later, the paint already looks like it is about 30 years old and it is all badly orange peeled and is starting to crack and peel in some spots even.  That paint was JUNK and I would never use it again on anything.  It's worth it to do it right once the first time than to have to redo it all over again!)

 

I would appreciate any help in locating the proper paint codes for these old tractors!  Thanks!

They offer both the 27x8.50x15 and the 26x12x12 for the 1250 the early ones were  in white later they changed to red.   If you have red rims paint them red if there white paint them white.
