    I have an 06 Scag Turf Tiger that is in need of some paint work. I know Scag sales rattle can paint thats a great match but I'm looking for the brand name and color code of what the factory used to spray with a paint guy. This will last well past the life rattle can paint. I'm planning on having my deck paint removed and using an epoxy sealer/primer and then the scag color. Any info will be appreciated.

    Maybe try contacting scag? They are probably the only ones with the code.

    Why not have your paint vendor mix something to match what you already have?

    Most paint shops have books that you can try to match up to or they can mix something up. Once upon a time scag had a sherwin williams paint code on their site but took it down maybe 5yrs ago (paint contract up?).

    Other thing to decide are you matching up your faded paint or showroom paint? There is a noticable difference if you ever put a new part on the mower.

    Hi Lawn guy did you ever get the correct paint code? a guy on this site posted the Dupont code back a couple of years ago...I contacted him to see whether it worked for him....walt

    Oranges/reds are notorious for fading...so a custom mix will only match your present level of fading IFF you're trying to touch-up.

    Any decent paint and body man can match up that paint.. I suggest getting a can of the rattle spray, and painting.. Like a bare metal mail box or something.. Take that, along with your well sanded down mower in pieces.. And he will match it up

    Personally.. If I was going thru all the trouble of sanding down and painting my mower.. I would put a full on zebra paint job on that puppy, wear khaki zoo keepers jumpsuits and the beige safari/zookeeper helmets on all day... The bushman.. Lol
