    I have a business friend who owns a body shop who recommend, a professional automotive paint/colormatch store, and anyone who owns a Walker knows that Walker keeps the "Walker Yellow" paint codes "top secret". The paint company had this machine that reads your Walker mower paint, and it created a perfect identical Walker Yellow match for touch up's got a quart can for $27.50. Going to use the paint for my 62" SD deck this winter. You cannot tell where the touch-up work is on the deck edges. Can be sprayed or brushed on

    about 10 years ago I talked to a walker tech and he gave me the paint information. If I remember correctly, It was a DuPont paint. I thought the name was centaur, but I can't remember. What I do remember is that there is a special etching primer that must be used to get the best results. I painted couple of decks and one mower body without using the proper primer. The paint did ok, but not great. It seemed to chip off much easier than the original paint.
