painting Hustler mowers

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.


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....
