Im sure im gona catch some static from some of you but here it goes. Im getting my 3rd ridemaster home soon and its gona need repainted. But I don't have enough time, space or equipment to do a spray job with custom mixed paint. So my question is has anyone found a decent matching green in a rattle can? I found a yellow I am very happy with so all that I need is the green. Later down the road I wana do a full restore but for now I wana make it look decent and stop the rust. So let me know what you have came up with. And before any one ask I don't have the tractor home yet so no pictures. Sorry.

First what year is the Ridemaster?

3 Different Greens were used from 48' to 58'

Some places can do custom mixes into rattle cans but you would have to research who does it.

No "Stock" paint is going to be close to what the OEM was.

You may be better off just getting some clear coat and painting the rusted areas if you plan to do a restore later.

You could also use a Preval Sprayer if you do not have access to compressed air - they use a glass jar for the paint and have a power unit which you can replace - just a suggestion
