Rudi,
The first pointer is this page:
http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/libraryarchives/ihc/paint/howto.asp

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?

BW:

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!

Just playing dumb here....

But, according to the picture, it is all black and white. Or, at least, shades of gray and black. :)
