Sorry ... Paint Questions Again

I am still confused about the Persian 1 or 2 codes. I went to Ditzler and started to buy the PPG code for Persian 1, however the chip looked very orange/red. As I recall the Persian orange one is correct for a 1948 G tractor. It appears that there is much discussion here .. Does anyone really know the correct code for the more yellow/orange that was original in the late 1940s?.. Sorry to bring this up again, thanks for the help..Mark

hello, I recently painted my wd45 with a single stage ppg omni urathane. It looks great, fairly easy to apply and very tough. I had 99% of the tractor apart and took a section of original paint (still glossy) that was in between the radiator and the shroud, Also the replacement battery box from AGCO is very very very close to the correct color. I had my paint supplier scan each one to make an exact match and they came out so close it really didnt matter. Looks great, not to red, kind of a pumpkin orange but not quite.

Make sure to wear a respirator when spraying this stuff!!!!!!!!

Hi Mark,

Here's a visual sample of the two PPG persian oranges. You want the 60080 one. I cannot get it mixed in Delstar (DAR) in my area anymore. That line from PPG has been discontinued, at least by the dealers near me. It is available in PPG's more economical OMNI line as MAE 60080 for acrylic enamel, MTK 60080 for acrylic urethane and MBC 60080 for the bc/cc system.

If it looked too orange it was probably PO # 2 which had a lot more red in it. For a 1948 you want PO #1 and the correct PPG code is Ditzler DAR 60080. An automotive PPG dealer can mix it for you. It is exactly correct and is what we used to call the "Pumpkin Orange".

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
