    Default Paint Question

    I'm looking to repaint some of my 3 point equip and would like to use some orange and gray to match my L2900 (1998) . has anyone found some paint such as TSC or that are a close match? I have bought Kubato paint in spray cans at $12.00 per can at the dealer but I'll be spraying a disc, plow, and other s so I would like to get somthing in a quart, or gallon can.
    Thanks in advance Larry from Ohio

    I don't think it has to say (kubota) on the can to be close and cost $12.00.

    I've seen quart cans at the dealership...maybe even gallons...I'm not sure.

    In painting an implement that isn't physically attached to the tractor, I'd use something less expensive...there are plenty of threads on acceptable substitutes. I'd only worry with kubota paint (and a perfect match) if I were painting the FEL or something that is otherwise bolted (and immediately adjacent to) the tractor.

    Those of you who think you know it all are particularly annoying to those of us who do.

    For the orange you will find Allis Chalmers is a good match. You can get it in gallons and qts at TSC.
    Chevy engine orange is also a good match KennyV.

    Do a search and look at some of the old posts. One guy gave the formula for a match from Home Depot I believe. Also Chevy orange is a good match for the orange II. Good luck.

    Thanks for all the replys on the paint question, Its great to have the gray mix for Lowe's I have the roll bar off at this time to get it into the shop door and it needs a fresh coat of paint. Would anyone have the Lowe's mix code for the orange?
    Thanks for all the help Larry

    Take a part, (orange) from your tractor, into Lowes They can computer match it. You can then post the mix? KennyV.

    The chances are good that a auto supply store that handles paint can match the colour and supply it in pressurized cans or by the quart. Pretty well any amount you wish actually. They fill and pressurize the cans on site.
