I have searched all the threads I can to come up with a rattle can option for flint metallic grey and if it is there I have not found it.

I picked up two cans of of different colors that I thought would match got them home both were too silver.

Anyway.....I was just checking to see if anyone had found one that was close to the original color.

Thanks

This is the real stuff, can be bought at a Massey Ferguson or ARGO Dealer.

I used Silver grey which was a colour I got at the Canadian Tire chain. It was a very close match but is no longer available. They switched from their house brand to Dupli Color and they don't stock anything close to silver grey.I have about 1/2 a can left and I don't think it will finish all the bits I have to paint on the 8. My nearest MF dealer is a real PITA to deal with. They don't usually have much paint in stock. They will not order paint in for you. You have to wait until they have a large enough "Chemical Order" before they will bring in any paint and they will not tell you when that will be. My JD dealer carries all the JD paint all the time without any hassles.
