While in Wal MArt a while back looking for some spray paint to paint my wifes Harbor freight windmill, I noticed they had Implement pait in spray cans which were made by Krylon. Hmmmmmm only $2.97 a can for Krylon paint that is supposedly JD Green, or Yellow and Ford Blue and Grey etc. Pretty cheap as compared to buying the paint from a dealer at anywhere from $8 to 9 dollars a can. I took a chance on some JD Yellow and Green, and some FordNH Grey and Blue. Got home and gave em a try. They match perfectly. I touiched up some areas on my Ford 1720, and some places on the JD mower deck. I knmow overall time will tell, but Krylon is a first class company and I have had great results with their paints before. Fast drying and it is not apt to run or stay sticky like some other brands. My next favorite brand is Plasiti Kote. I wound up painting her windmill JD green and yellow.

I had heard some rumors of these cans before, Chipmaker... Thanks for taking the time to test em out (guinea pigging it for the rest of us) :pig: -------- It is a great deal and perfect for light touch-up work. Thanks for sharing. :D

That's about all I use on smaller projects anymore. Although I've never actually tried to match any colors I have much better luck with it than Rust-O-Leum. No runs, no drips and no errors or bubbles. I thought I was paying $.97 a can though. I'll have to check....

So now I can buy another less expensive brand of lawn tractor at sears and then run across the street to Wally world for green and yellow paint... and save about 2400 on my new Deere!

:idea:

I alway thought a DYT4000 would look like a LX series Deere if it was green and yellow.However after you took it for a test drive.It would still be a Sears Craftsman.I nice tractor however not a Deere not even close.

Well Yes, yes it does. Rebuilt an old blade last year for my 224, and the paint held up GREAT.
