1966 B-12 Restore - Paint Color

Recommended Posts


@Honey badger mistakenly posted this question in his "Activity" section of his membership page.  I've copied it here for exposure: 

I am looking for the yellow paint name for my re-store of my 1966 Allis chalmers B-12 garden tractor?

Lorain yellow is the color you are looking for.  Here are a couple sources. I have used paint from both VanSickle and Industrial Touchups.  I would recommend contacting them and asking for the paint in acrylic enamel.  It's a much nicer paint to use and for the longhaul.  I have most recently been working with VanSickle on some customer matches in acrylic, and wow...the stuff goes on smooth, dries quickly and hardens fast.  It takes a 1K clear and looks like glass.  The saw below I recently restored with their paint, and this is the finish I got with no sanding between coats.
