My dad has a 1976 230 that he bought new. I'm looking at cleaning it up and touching up the paint. I went to a couple of places that carry the paint in spray cans, but the grey is darker them what is on the tractor. How do I find the right color paint?

Thanks
Rick

If I remember on daddy's old 230 ,its nearly an aluminum color metallic all the new colors are either to bright or to gray. But the red hasn't really changed shades that much.But his tractor was primed with the gray primer .Its really hard to say who has the right colors.

Well you don't. Paint fades with time. You may try to rub out the old paint to remove the dead and faded paint and then see if you get a better match but be aware that new paint and old paint fades at different rates so if you do get it to match now in a few years the paint will be mis-matched again.:howdy:
