Well, the powdercoating on my 2005 4720 is flat toast and looks awful. So after failing to come up with any official paint code, I took the pan from under my seat (had it removed to replace my rockshaft piston seal) and took it in to match up. The color they came up with is "Traffic Red 912 002", or RAL 3020 (RAL Color Chart | www.RALcolor.com).

This color would be closest and looks spot on, Ill update hopefully by the end of the weekend with the results. Could have had a custom formula made according to the machine, but it was $330/gallon, where as closest match was $230/gallon.

Started this evening with painting the plastics all gloss black, they were horribly faded. Used plastic adhesion promotor and some Majic paint for that. Will start prepping fenders and hood tomorrow. The loader and backhoe are gonna be a pain, not sure how I am going to hoist it quite yet. Not looking forward to it.

Ill let you guys know how it comes out! (still need to find a matching grey for a little touch up on the rear axle, rest of the tractor looks great still.)

looks good. The engine and chassis seem similar to cummins "bluke" aka "blue black"

I found the Rustoleum "Cherry" red in the rattle can is the perfect match for my Branson red at WW. I have the part number out in the shop but it's not hard to spot and the WW Supercenters carry a goodly variety of paints for your choosing. They didn't have a grey to match and TSC may have it. At 4 bucks a can it sure beats the OEM price for what I do with it and I store my stuff indoors so I don't worry about sun baking resistance if that were to be an issue.

Getting closer to being done, backhoe is next on the list


Stickers came in from a friend:

Black cylinders look SO MUCH BETTER. Nice to break up the red:
