Napa #50 Red

Postby Harold R » Wed Jul 14, 2004 9:40 pm

Has anyone used the Napa #50 red paint in the spray cans? I see it crossed referenced on the paint chart. Wonder if it's a good match.

Harold:

I inherited that info on the Paint Chart. Not too sure how good a match it is. I would presume that it would probably be close

What my NAPA sold me for my Cub was not even close. Go to or order from IH dealer. His spray cans match perfect. Has 2150 right on the spray can. Now what NAPA sells in gallons is a match but twice the price. Dealer is $40.

Jim:

Does that mean I should modify the paint chart to state that the rattle can is excluded from the match?

Anybody else have this experience?

I painted my engine with a NAPA spray can and posted on the board back in 2002 and even George Willer said it looked like Massey Harris red. But I have also noticed that video cards are not all the same. But G Willer is usually right when it comes to Cubs
