Where to find the exact color for a ferris mower

My mowers paint is chipping off and I need to repaint it. But I want it to look nice and the and have the same color. Where can I get the exact paint that they use on ferris mowers? Your input would be appreciated.

I would call Ferris and they should be able to tell you. chances are it's a powder coating that is sprayed on and probably baked on. if that's the case, if you can get a sample and have a paint store match it. not a home center. get the product in a industrial maintenance paint.

Reds are the most notorious color for fading over time...so the chances of factory stock paint matching an older model are slim-to-none at best. You may have better luck trying to get your current red matched somehow...??

I wouldn't go with a factory color.

If your painting it, might as well make it look like your logo colors.
