Just had my tank repainted with PPG 71310, listed for the 1961 and newer Cubs, and it looks a lot more orange than the rest of the tractor, even parts that I scrubbed up.
My wife is pretty good with colors and grew up around her grandfather's Farmalls. She is very firm that it should be a darker red.
Since there don't seem to be any codes for the mid-1949's through the mid-1961's, I'm thinking of going with the PPG 70019, listed for the prior to mid-1949 Cubs. Is that a darker shade?
Any suggestions on my dilemma? Thanks!

Below is a link to a discussion on that topic.http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=46648&hilit=PPG+70019
Personally, I used IH 2150 Red to repaint my 48 Cub and have been quite satisfied. It is readily available at most IH Dealers and not too expensive. I have heard that in time it will fade from exposure to the sun, but I keep my tractor in a garage, when not in use. After two years, it still looks good.
