Simplicity Orange paint

Recommended Posts

DDB
Called my local Simplicity dealer and asked how much a can of Simplicity orange would cost. They wanted over 9 bucks a can. Since my local Tractor supply center does not carry Simplicity orange and Allis orange is to bright, can anyone tell me of a color that is the "same as" or "close to" simplicity orange. Thank you

When I rebuilt my 42" deck, my Simplicity dealer, which is also a Tru-Value store, recommended Premium Decor brand "PDS-24 Banner Orange" as an alternative to the high-priced Simplicity paint. It an extremely close match. I can't tell the difference in the colors of the deck and the tractor. Think the paint was around 4 bucks a spray can. DaveM

If you wanted to use an automotive paint, my son is in the body shop business and just did a restoration on a Chevy Camaro. The original colors were orange and white. After he painted the orange I compared it to the Simplicity orange on a 2012. Almost perfect match. I can get the paint code number from him if you want it. When I do a restoration on the 2012 that is the paint that I am going to use. I will have to ask him but I think the Camaro was a 1969 model.

The Camaro used "Hugger" Orange. On the pace car and the other Orange cars they painted.

Oh the hood and fenders of my Landlord is painted with the Ace paint. The rest is the old paint. It looks close in the pic but up close you can tell. The whole Broadmoor is painted with it as well Hope this helps Elon

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
