    Default Cat hiway yellow paint

    IF you want a match for old cat yellow go to a. AXALTA Auto Paint and ask for their industrial. IMRON I have used a lot of it in my rebuilding projects, they have a dead Match for color it is easy to put on and will last for MANY years I have used their JD Green, IH red, JD yellow, we even matched old JD green I am a farmer painter and all I use is a harbor freight gun but with good prep and a decent place to paint you can get a very Glossy finish. I donít have the paint number in front of me if you want it I will get it. 17afarmer. Mike

    Here is a video I took of 17A Farmers 17A when I had the pleasure to ride on it for the first time.

    Gives a good idea of the color

    Default Rustoleum.

    Hi, Folks.
    Rustoleum has a spray pack that they call "old Caterpillar yellow", supposed to be the original 'Highway Yellow'. Has anybody tried it?

    A kew-ree-yuss mind would like to know.

    Just my 0.02.
    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes.

    Deas Plant.

    I have been starting to check on paint to do my D2. As far as I know, Rustoleum has discontinued their old Cat yellow. I'm coming around now to the idea of buying the paint chip, and just going down to NAPA or some other place and have them mix some up. It might be expensive, but at least it would be a reliable source that I could go back to in the future if I needed more.

    17A, isnt IMRON one of the LPU group of paints that requires much more safety measures than most other paints? I spent a lot of time in boatyards and it became known after several deaths that even outdoor painting with a mask was not enough protection. Do they now recommend forced air breathing systems? Just curious out of caution. Grant.

    To the best of my knowledge, IMRON paint is not available/legal to sell in the state of California. High VOC?
    Darn good stuff, and expensive. My trucking buddies will find it out of state to do their projects.
