Cream Paint

Recommended Posts

What I did was take an original piece of sheet metal from the tractor into an automotive paint store and have them color match the color for some new paint. That worked very well for me to get the correct color simplicity orange and cream color paint for my 66 Landlord 101. To make sure the color was as exact as possible I used panels that were not exposed to sunlight on the tractor. I dont have the formula for either color. The color matching is about as perfect as one can get, hopefull that will work for you. Good luck, Ryan

Not a stickler for originality, I went with with Dupli-Color Truck, Van and RV spray paint, shade T-205W, Wimbleton White, on my Big Ten. It's an off-white. It's not quite as "yellow-creamy" as the original color, but it matched the replacement seat that I bought from Sandy Lake very, very well.

I really liked the way the spray can of Rustoleum Almond came out--nice cream color, as opposed to a starker, pure white. I don't have a good piece of original Simp. cream paint to compare to, but it looks right when compared to the excellent color pics at simpletractors.
