Scag factory paint

I have an 06 Scag Turf Tiger that is in need of some paint work. I know Scag sales rattle can paint thats a great match but I'm looking for the brand name and color code of what the factory used to spray with a paint guy. This will last well past the life rattle can paint. I'm planning on having my deck paint removed and using an epoxy sealer/primer and then the scag color. Any info will be appreciated.

Maybe try contacting scag? They are probably the only ones with the code.

Why not have your paint vendor mix something to match what you already have?

Most paint shops have books that you can try to match up to or they can mix something up. Once upon a time scag had a sherwin williams paint code on their site but took it down maybe 5yrs ago (paint contract up?).

Other thing to decide are you matching up your faded paint or showroom paint? There is a noticable difference if you ever put a new part on the mower.

Oranges/reds are notorious for fading...so a custom mix will only match your present level of fading IFF you're trying to touch-up.
