Another thing, which I am sure you are already aware of, is that the color of primer you use would probably have an effect on the final gloss topcoat shade.

Just an FYI .

Rust oleum Gloss sunrise red is a dead on match and its cheaper than the farm implement paints are. Its available in both oil base brush on and rattle can.
However, from what I can tell older Snapper machines are a darker shade of red than the newer machines, unless the old machines just fade darker. But if its the lighter shade, the gloss sunrise red is dead on.

You made my day, matching paint on a snowblower!

Man just clean it, prime it and paint it.

No points deducted as long as it works.
