The first pointer is this page:

Anyone needs a good grip on what this page says to understand the paint decisions.

For example, decision 169 says the Cub-22 mower is all blue but follows with ". . . parts not mentioned . . . as heretofore." So the hard part is determining the heretofores. If you go back to #61 you find the board ochre and the pitman and grass stick varnished. There may be an intermediate that changed the varnished to ochre, but I didn't spot it.

That is the kind of look required for any specific implement. I'm not about to go through all the decisions looking for anything that might apply to a Cub implement.

If you want to look at paint decisions for more to add to your server, that is the kind of trail you need to follow.

I still can't guess what color the yellow ones are?? I have seen 'federal yellow', does that mean I can 'borrow' some paint from the school bus folks?

Will try to get the NASON cross ref number for you tonight. That one will then cross over to the Dupont, Centari, PPG and SW paint codes I think.

Hang in there k?

Wow, look at all the personal protective equipement the operator's wearing...

Well, at least he's got on a jumpsuit - but nowadays he'd have at least a respirator if not something with a faceshield as well!

But, according to the picture, it is all black and white. Or, at least, shades of gray and black. :)
Though trillions and trillions of eyes have been watching the skies for as long as human memory exists, no gods nor angels have been seen or documented outside of religion. The number of spaceships being sighted however has become much more prevalent.
