Or give Wendell Kelch a call in Bethel, Ohio. He has this info. Find his number on the web under Kelch's Repair.

the paint used on this restored tractor in 1980 is a French coat, "Citroën Cyclone grey" in order to match with the original paint as close as possible - Call Todd Marlkle who is a specialist.

I’m honestly kind of surprised there was that much consistency in paint colors in and around 1935, our local Napa mixes paint with a scale, and there tends to be some serious variation batch to batch, such that I sometimes “stock up” rather than risk running out near the end of a project it’s usually not a big deal on what I’m painting but I would have expected IHC to have their own paint mixing going on and with primitive measuring equipment and large batches I would expect lots of variation. 

Its interesting to have some real specific color, I wonder if you were able to take a large sampling of good quality paint samples how much variety you would get. Perhaps they used an average to pick their color in that article?

I am more curious about what your painting grey!  You must have found something down in the bunker on level 6!!🤔🤣.

Indeed!!

Will it be on rubber or on steel?  On tires or on tracks?

I am also wondering if he is building a W-40 (sheet metal), 30.5-32 rubber,  with a 3406 kitty under the hood

Everyone calm 😳 No new projects , just had a guy ask me about the correct color and I have never done anything that old with the grey paint . I'm thinking it's like the gold for the gold demos , if everyone uses the same color code that way when we are at a show everyone's tractors match 👍

For the different levels of the Dirt Boyz Proving Grounds /Bunker 🤔 There is a very small group of people who get in here , my western security division Billy /Brady Boy keeps me under tight wraps , he might be busy with the happenings over in camel and goat country right now !! . Heath you Marty  have clearance and have passed the test 😂😂 Matt you will need to contact Billy and start your testing program 😂😂

Everyone enjoy your weekend 😊

I bet that test is a rough one. West coast security officer is a tough character.
