Hey, guys. I went to the Cub Manual Server (thanks, Rudi, for the link) and checked out the paint numbers. What I thought was #50 Red, turmed into What-In-The-World-Shade-Of-Red-Should-I-Use-Red?
Knowing that the local John Deere dealer wants $6.59 for a rattle can of Classic Green, I picked up a can of Krylon #2101 Cherry Gloss Red last night at Wal-Mart so I could compare it to my uncle's can of IH Red (I haven't gotten over there to check as of yet), hoping they would be the same and at $2.47 a can, I might save a few bucks. I sanded, primed and coated a piece of scrap steel and it looks close from memory of my uncle's restoration.
I noticed that Sherwin Williams was listed on the Cub Manual Server paint chart and the email address for customer support on my Krylon spray can is"firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm assuming Krylon is a Sherwin Williams company. I'm going to email them and ask if they have a matching color to IH #50 Red.
Basically, I wondered if any of you guys would know if I were to paint this soon-to-be my cub in Krylon's Cherry Red Gloss, would it be the proper shade or would I have the only 1947 Farmall Cub that looked like it just came out of the garage on the "Pimp My Ride" show?
Thanks for any advice!!!!
