    For anyone interested, I was on a quest to find rattlecan paint that would match Walker paint. I was tipped on here to try Rustoleum "Sunburst Yellow" It was NOT even CLOSE.

    Valspar, sold at TSC (Tractor Supply) CUB CADET YELLOW. Yep, that's right. It's so close of a match it's not even funny. Under $5.00 a 12oz. spray can. That's 1/4 of what the Walker deler want's for their paint, and it wasn't even as close of a match!

    Just an FYI for those who are trying to touch up your walkers out there.

    What I'm not 100% sure on is if Walker has been using the exact same yellow all the time. Has the yellow changed recently? The one I was painting it a 1997 model. Didn't have my '08 out to compare colors.

    My local Cub cadet dealer sells only cub and toro. However, they do most of the work on my walker. Checked out the cub cadet yellow they sell and it is as close as your going to get. It is $9.95 a can. Comes from cub cadet. They have new cub yellow and the original. I matched best with the new cub yellow. Alot of talk about a can of paint. But it is worth the savings. My walker is 2002 diesel. Not sure about the color changes or if were are any over the years.
