repainting

Folks, I have several Deere's that I'll be refurbishing as time permits. What is the best way to go about getting the correct paint for these? Just get a scraping of current color on the rigs and take it into a paint store to have it color matched? Some are all green, some are green & yellow.

Thanks

They have a lot of farm colors at my local Tractor Supply company. You should see if there's one of those in your area . They have the International Harvester/Farmall red and some other truck and tractor companies I would think they would have John Deere colors too. Give them a try be sure and use the compatible primer to the paint you buy.

The meltdown is under way ...

Probably both. And there is a Tractor Supply not too far from here so I'll need to swing by. Thanks for the advice.

That's not what overspray is , I'm sure POWERSHIFT will get a bang out of that In all seriousness though, but you'll be OK because I used an IH Red ( closest to Toro red match they had, matched fairly well) rattle can from Tractor Supply on mine, it had a newer fan type nozzle and did a pretty good job.

Go to Harbor freight, but $13 paint gun, then go to the local Deere store buy 1 qt of JD Paint and JD thinner, follow mixing directions, paint and enjoy!
If you don't have a compressor, I would use genuine JD rattle cans. Several on My Tractor Forum have had great success with JD's rattle cans.

Ryan, East of the MN tundra, no "eek" using Rustoleum Farm paint cans. That's 4 years after "overspraying" it.
