    Does anyone touch up the paint on their mowers?

    Any tips for a brand or color for my Exmark, obviously "red" but if anyone has had a decent color match experience I would appreciate it. I just want to touch up the non-discharge side of the deck.

    Thanks!

    I was going to ask the same thing a week or two ago, but I figured that my dealer could get Exmark red. Going to paint my 36"Deere this winter to match the Exmark.I got some places on my 48" I need to touch up, on the left side of the deck.

    We just find cheap paint that come as close to the color that we can. After about a day with all the dirt and grass stains no one can ever tell.

    Thanks guys, I want to paint tomorrow, so I'll buy the closest shade to it. I will order the exmark paint for my future touch-ups or to cover my current project if needed.

    This won't match your paint, but I use this N@P@ rubberizer. It's a brownish-black color. I put it a places that would get scratched up. It isn't too durable, but if you keep applying it every week, your stuff should look okay.

    I use International red for touch up on my exmarks.
