Look on the TISCO website... Here is a link


Also, Ace Rust Stop® Farm and Implement ™ Allis Chalmers Orange is also a PRETTY good match but NOT exact. Here is a picture of the Ace® Branc Paint

On the Simplicity 717


On the 3112

Im a big fan of the ACE paint. Inexpensive, great spray coverage/pattern, and dries quickly and does not remain tacky for weeks like some others. Their AC Orange is my go to for small projects. For doing a whole tractor I think I would buy it in a quart, mix in a little red to byet me closer to Simplicity orange depending on tractor model, and add hardener

If I do anymore than just a few parts I also would recommend getting it in the gallon size. Very reasonable price. I don't have pictures but I repainted just the running boards on my 4211 and they look ALMOST exactly the same. But I suppose they could be a tad bit darker in orange

I used the Ace orange spraypaint on my 2010. it is nice paint and it lays on nice, but beware, I have had problems with the paint being different shades of orange between different batches. If you use it I recomend looking at the batch numbers printed on the bottom of the cans and buying all from the same batch.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
