Simplicity Red Paint

Recommended Posts

captpierce
Hello everyone, Just got on to this website this weekend and WOW - what a wealth of knowledge and info! I am wondering if anyone can help me find out if there is a generic red paint that closely matches the Simplicity Red color. I checked with my local dealer and the cost was pretty high, so I thought I would go generic, but some of the "over the counter" paints look like the right red color first, but once applied, they are too dark or too light. Any advice? Thanks, L.D. Pierce

The old Simplicity red is tough to match I had sherwin williams # that is pretty close but its not cheap either. If you are painting the whole tractor you don't have to worry so much about an exact match. From what I have seen so far the simplicity's varied in color slightly from year to year and that the newer ones are much more orange like Marty says. Btw welcome to the club and good luck with your project!

MPH and ReedS, Thanks for the advice - I hadn't thought about the Chevy orange/red, but that would be just about the right shade for my '67 Sovereign 3012. I'm going to start with the 42" snow blower (now that the snow is done for the year - I hope) and the 46" dozer blade I bought this weekend. Thanks! CaptPierce

Check out this old link: http://www.simpletractors.com/club2/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=11441&SearchTerms=paint Also, go to discussions>search the forums then search for "paint" and you'll find 8 pages of old discussions to sift through. Most of them won't be helpful but there are a few good ones for you. Brent

NAPA auto parts sells some exact match paint for automotive spray guns. The color I used is called OLIVER ORANGE. Its a perfect match for the old orange tractor color on my 66 landlord. It's pretty cheap too.

      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
