    Default TSC Kubota Orange, close match?

    Just curious if anyone has experience with the above.
    Don't have a TSC in my area but will be traveling to
    an area where TSC has several stores. If the match is
    reasonable the price makes it an attractive option
    compared to that available from the dealer.

    The match is as good as the paint from kubota. Both are a bit light to me so you can see any touch up real easy.

    Hmm.. I wonder if it is actually the older Kubota Orange rather than the
    newer orange-red hue.

    I think I've heard that before but nothing so definitive. Was this match with
    the newer or older (early 1990's and back) color?

    I used Allis Chalmer ORange from TSC, and it matched my BX perfectly. You can't tell where I've touched it up. My canopy was painted with it...check it out on my home page...

    I think it as close a match as possible considering there is UV
    fading with which to contend. kubota Orange II for ~$3 a pop
    at Walmart. Who'd a thunk it?

    BTW the Rustoleum color codes for both the above and (a close)
    ROPS grey are #7458 and #7784 respectively. The local HD
    should be able to mix them up.

    I bought a spray can of Buff (color) primer from TSC and some kubota Orange and gave them a test on some scrap material. I put down a coat of the primer (looks similar to the yellow primer used by Kubota), then followed up with a coat of the orange. The Orange was noticably lighter than the color on my BX23. I went back and bought a spray can of Allis Chalmers Orange and repeated the test. Looks to me to be a very good match.

    I have had at least one experience in which the color of the primer seems to have a definite influence on the color of the top coat. I was trying to preserve some old, rusty implements, so after cleaning them up as best as I could (within the limits of how much work I was willing to do!) I primed them with a dark red (almost brown) rust-inhibiting primer, then followed up with what was supposed to be "Tractor Red," which I hoped would not be too far from Ford Red. Over the primer the red came out dark orange (but not Kubota Orange, either! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] ).

    The primer will not effect the color of the top coat if the top coat is sufficiently thick. I can remember when all we used was red primer and we painted white over the primer. The primer that kubota uses is a self etching primer sealer that doesn't require any sanding before top coating. I wouldn't doubt that it is a water based primer also that is applied after the bare metal has gone through a acid bath and neutralizer in an assembly line fashion. To me, it also appears that the finish is a baked enamel topcoat.
