Some of you might remember my Project snowblower from last year when i switched engines on my first snowblower. This year i am doing a paint job on that snowblower giving it it's original color. I am planning to strip down all the paint using a chemical based stripper, brushing everything with a grinder and sandblasting everything. For the paint i think i will use Allis Chalmers Orange paint?

Chevy engine orange is a 99.5% match matched the new scraper blade 99.5%

Its also a cermanic engine paint high heat oil gas resistance worked perfect for me

Do you know where i could find that color? I was thinking allis chalmer orange mostly because i would only have to go to my agco dealer
your local canadian tire store will have the chevy orange, be careful not to mix it up with chevy orange-red .

Instead of paying 100$ for a gallon of the original paint color, i finally decided to use some 30$ farm implement paint in another color considering that my snowblower won't ever be a museum piece. The new color is Caterpillar yellow and it looks pretty good.

I don't know which I admire more,the ambition you have to do a complete teardown and repaint like that or the fact you actually have the room in your garage to do it.I have TWO garages and I couldn't refurb a birdhouse in either one of them.Nice,very nice.

Fun fact, i don't own a garage, this is at my girlfriend house. Had to bring everything there where there was already 2 snowblowers getting worked on:surprise:
