    Premixed cans of Caterpillar yellow is a near perfect match for Hustler yellow....

    I took a deck pulley cover to the auto paint shop for a match.....

    Seems they had spray cans of Cat yellow for 2.35 [tax included].

    However he offered to custom match the color for 27.00 a quart and told me I was wasting money if I did.

    He took a can off the shelf and sprayed it on the cover, guess what, it matched.

    So...

    I bought some grey primer to do the job right.

    Feathered the damaged areas [rust, chipped paint] and masked them off.

    The leading edge of mower deck was particularly nasty and there was also the normal wear and tear on the paint after about 3 hours work on 2 mowers they now look near new and professionally maintained.

    The trailer is next....
