Re: Lawnboy Paint Matches

I realize that this is an older thread but I finished restoring a 3003 a few months ago. It was the buttercup color. I had a really hard time finding information on this particular color. I spent some time trying to find a rattle can that matched the original butter cup color. By accident my 10 year old son pointed this out to me in a Lowe's. " hey dad, that looks like the buttercup right there" Sure enough. Valspar Oatlands Daisy. Lowe's item number 416278. I could only find it in a flat finish. I cleared it with Duplicolor Auto Grade Clear to help with fuel resistance. I primed and painted the deck. I wasn't sure how the Valspar would react with the Duplicolor so I let the paint bake in the sun, in my driveway for about 15 days before I cleared it. It turned out beautifully. There were a few painted areas on the mower that were hidden from the sun. I was able to do a side by side comparison during the process and if it wasn't exact, it was really really close. Just thought I'd share.

Re: Lawnboy Paint Matches

While picking up my latest powder coated deck, the coater recommended this IOS app for matching colors by taking a photo of the item.

It's awesome.

Talking Re: Lawnboy Paint Matches

Just painted the flywheel screen on my 3054 using Testor's hobby spray paint in Sublime Green. There was a fair amount of paint on the back of the screen for reference and this was a very good match. Bill

Repaint on left. Original backside on right.

Several years ago I acquired an old lawn boy 3003 and went looking for a color match. I found Krylon #1808 maize was a dead on the money match for the original buttercup yellow. Did the entire mower and it came out perfect.

I hear that this is a good match for Lawnboy blue flywheel screens. It's in the Walmart craft section

Following this discussion. I've got a growing stack of LB decks that need powder coating and am eager to get it right. Thanks for the info, @LB7022 !

Re: Lawnboy Paint Matches

Autumn Red on the 1956 5000 has been tough to get in a spray can.
The Painters Touch cinnamon is close, but a little orange. The Dupli color brick is close also, but a little pink?. So I used both, after self etching primmer used cinnamon, then over-spayed about 60% with brick. Then clear coat engine enamel. This got me pretty close to original, and decal color. The over-spray does not lay down as nice as full coat but the clear and buff brings it back pretty glossy. On the deck I would agree with most that the Painters touch Spruce green is pretty good, just a touch darker, but looks good. Moss green if you want to go to the lighter side.

I got a chance to put the 5000 together and compare to my original 5000 for color side by side. The light really effects these colors.
