Ariens Touch up Paint

We picked up a new Ariens Deluxe 30 last fall, and have been very pleased with it. We have a gravel driveway. During the early part of the year, I caught some rocks in the blower, which have left a deep scratch (down to bear metal), in the impeller housing. Contacted Ariens today to find out where I could get some touch up paint to match the original, and they are sending it to me (in Canada), free.

Have to say - I've been very impressed with Ariens' customer service.

That's impressive!

I see touch up paint and spray cans on eBay and at your local Ariens dealer.

If you have an older machine, Chevrolet engine orange is pretty close.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

That's what I've been using for years, covers well, decent color match.
