    There are some companies that do it. This is the first I found, but it isn't cheap-$19-35 per can.

    It is the put it in a spray can that got you the looks. Making spray paint cans is not an easy feat. What they may be able to do is mix you some automotive paint and you can go to Harbor Freight or wherever and pick up an HVLP spray gun kit to use with your compressor. Don't forget water filters for your compressor lines!

    Well, here's another color to try --- I think it's a great match. I welded up a simple bracket to mount instruments on then used "Ford Blue No. 205" by Plasti-Kote. It's an old Ford engine color. I used it cause I had it. I like the color match. $7 for a 12 oz spray can.

    Have you tried asking the dealer to order you some? I just bought a Bad Boy mower and had the dealer get me a spray can of factory orange paint for a few dollars.

    Guys, I just bought a good condition HOWSE rotary mower. It really looks good, even has the factory decals. The sides and the lower rear discharge areas have some scraping and bare metal and I'd like to repaint it to match. Anal, I know.....
    Here's the rub.....everybody has JD or kubota or New Holland Blue.....but few carry IMPLIMENT colors. Anyone know of where to get them? I tried a rattle can of red and way too bright..... BTW, "Big Bee" uses FORD RED.....perfect match.

    You could do what I did in the original post and take a small piece of it with the correct color to your local auto paint store and match it to what they have in there catalog.

    Some folks have said that Krylon Chevy Engine Paint is a pretty good match. I bought a couple cans of Rustoleum Engine Orange at Harbor Freight for $4.97 each and it appears to be pretty spot on. I bought a can on New Kioti Orange at the dealer and it was $15!!

    AKRAVEN....Will auto paint suppliers sell SMALL amounts? I remember painting car fenders and a quart is the least they would mix.
    Then when you mix that with thinner.....you end up with alot of waste.
    Still looking for HOWSE RED....thanks

    Boeing have you called/stopped by any of your local paint stores and asked them whats available? My local NAPA will sell in pint cans and with custom mixed paint to match/thinner/hardener is $60 total(Alaska prices). All I can suggest is get out your local yellow pages and start calling around and see what is available in your local area. Then take a sample piece of your mower along and color match to what they have in there color book.
