paint for a case 300

Tue Jun 12, 2012 6:06 pm

Went to the local auto paint store for some paint for a friends 300 case and was told they did not have a reference to use for the color. Can anyone supply me with the color numbers(requested by the store) or steer me in the right direction? The people at the store have been very helpful with matching paint before but came up with a blank this time. The sheet metal on the tractor needs to be repaired and I would like to match the color when I get done. My only IH dealer is over 100 miles away and that is a long way just to pickup a quart or a rattle can or two. Thanks,Panda. :help:

Update on the paint. I called the IH/Case dealer and found out the paint is called desert sand. He also gave me a "code" to use for mixing. The local auto paint store I use could not find the color or the code in their books so I called Napa and got the same story. The IH dealer said he could not send me the paint as UPS had stopped letting them ship paint from that location. Having the color name let me order what I needed from Ag Parts who can ship paint. Now if the weather holds maybe I can get one more job done. :{_}: Life is good.

To my knowledge, the only catch with shipping paint is that it must go ground so it takes longer. Carter and Gruenwald is a dealer and will ship it to ya. Great folks to deal with besides.
