Where to buy Federal Yellow Paint?

Postby Virginia Joe » Wed Feb 24, 2010 5:57 pm

Hello,
I recently purchased a case (six cans) of Van Sickle gray oil primer in spray cans from “Hardware world” per “Bob in CT” advice. Price was good and it came right to my door. :D Thanks Bob! My question is where can a by a case of Federal Yellow for my 1975 cub :?: I’m hoping to buy it cheaper then my case dealer sells it for (over $9.00 per spray can). Any advice would be appreciated.

Joe:

Any good automotive finish supply house should be able to fill rattle cans with Federal Yellow cheaply. I think I paid $5.00 or so for the rattle cans here a couple years ago.

If you have a local cub cadet dealer check with them for a price. You could also try Ken at Carter & Gruenewald for a price. He might be cheaper than your dealer.

If I recall they are $7 or $8 a can from a dealer. I tried for the case discount and couldn't get one. C&G is where I usually get it.

I ran out once and got some from the local CC dealer (OLD CC yeller). I didn't like the paint, not the same as the IronGuard from CNH. But still better than the TSC stuff (Valspar?).

Ace Hardware carries a Federal Yellow but it doesn't cover as well as the IronGuard.

Thanks for all the advice guys! It turns out that $9.03 for Iron Gard from my local dealer was my best option for Federal Yellow 12oz spray cans. I should probably seriously consider investing in some spray equipment. Thanks again 8)

That's a bit high, but I haven't bought any in a year. It's worth paying more in my opinion, great paint.
