Correct, as I mentioned earlier I prefered the red by Centari that John Smith listed for 8N's and 100's, now Centari is owned by Axalta so don't know how their colors stack up. My 960 is a worker so did not want to spend the bucks for top of the line paint either. In the past I always used TruValue Xo-Rust Xo6 red for worker 8N's and 100 series, no longer available so I went hunting for a sutible 8N-100 series red. Of the samples I got he Coronado Rust-Scat OSHA red suited me best. Many folks use the Case NH 956 & 957 Vermillion and gray, they are the 101 colors very close to that series original. The 101 series red Is way to orangeish to suit me and Coronados red has none of that. It's sad, over the years I collected and have books of original paint codes for all kinds of equipment but in the OEM days most paints contained lead and often are no longer matchable when converted to new formulatins. So finding what suits your taste and wallet is the most important thing. When I was at Ford I worked in Dealer Relations, the folks that studied and almost mandated repainting trade in Fords the current colors. One reason you see the early colors dropping off the parts list and 101 reds and grays being listed on the CNH can as being correct for 48-62.
