Question Ariens closest color match

I will be getting 3 ST tall chute assemblies getting sanblasted and powdercoated, and would like to know what is the closest color match (non Ariens brand) for that.
I've read about Chevy orange engine paint. Just wondering if there is just one tone of it or if there are more. If there are more than one "Chevy orange" what is the color code?
Or if anyone had found a different color match to it.
Thanks.

(To my knowledge there are 3 Ford engine blue tones, therefore my question).

I've read posts from others using Rustoleum Gloss Lobster Red (usually available on the shelves at Walmart).

I don't like the dupli color, the way it sprays and covers. this is the best imho. side to side with the original color its almost an exact match.it also sprays and covers better. also the off white is a color called dover white.again almost an exact match. although I don't like the way it sprays very thin and runs easy. if you notice I have my sb in the living room to finish the final touches on my rebuild/restore. bride not so happy with that.pics coming soon...original color on my 10954 with the rustoleum cap on top. durable, but needs time to fully harden before putting into use. I let it "cure" a few weeks at temps around 70. the reason its in my living room. had to touch up the por15 chevy orange I messed up when I yanked the auger again to replace the gear roll pin

Valspar 4432-03 Allis Chalmers Orange Tractor and Implement Paint

I can't tell a difference with this Valspar paint. Excellent match and the quality of the paint is outstanding with hardener (except the aerosol can be very tempermental to work with).

I bought my touch up in a quart can. My problem area is the impeller fan and the bottom impeller area. Even when I take the auger assembly out, spraying this area is a pain in the dupa. To me, it is a lot easier by brushing it on... and I have more control. There might be some brush marks, but in the impeller area, but who sees it and who really cares? Because it will need to be done again over time. Try spraying that area especially with the augers in the bucket. Taping and masking with news paper? No thanks, I'll do my brush on. I am lucky enough where the outside of my machine is in pretty good shape. And if I have to touch up, how do you do that by spraying it? I tried the spray in to the cap and using a artists brush. Oops... back to the masking off and getting the newspaper...

interesting, I tried that first, and found that to be more orange,( like the newer ariens color),than the older color used.

Thanks everyone.

Looks like it will be a...
like Valspar 4432-03 Allis Chalmers Orange color match

I'll see what the powder coater can do about that and I will post pictures of the before and after it it gets done.
