    I wanted to paint the Toro WB I just purchased, so I pulled the deck, spindles, etc... I was wondering if there was a cheaper substitute to Toro paint, its about $8 a can. Something that comes close, but is not orange like some of the other jobs I've seen. Toro seems like a pretty dark red.

    I think it's better to just pay the price of the OEM paint. Nothing looks worse than a cheap imitation paint job.

    The use of a paint gun is much better than rattle cans also.....

    Got the deck, the top cover and the two side covers done, but ran out of paint before I could get to the chassis. Will have to get another $8 can to do that.
