    I want to paint my 1972 scout Fire Orange. I plan on going with a single stage urethane. I went to the local jobber and they wanted 493.00 for a gallon.

    Does anyone know where I could get a single stage close to the original Fire Orange for less?

    California Orange from this site may be close

    Any experience in this area is appreciated

    The search function is your friend, this comes up and has been discussed several times. For good paint at a much better price, try TCP Global, or this place http://www.paintforcars.com/

    Do a search for "orange tera". It is omaha orange to give you some perspective.

    I used ohama orange 150.00 per gallon. Fire orange was not an IH color, I don't know where you can get a color brighter than ohama orange. Look at my Terra! Reds and Oranges are man made pigments so they tend to be more costly to shoot.

    My paint guy quoted me $402 for clear coat, or $300 for single stage urethane.

    I remember that IH had a "Flame Red" in the mid '70's Scout II's, IH #2289. Nason Code 7045, PPG Code 71903.

    I had a '73 Scout II that color, Flame Red. When it was parked next to an orange car, the Scout looked red, when it was parked next to a red car, the Scout looked orange.

    The Fire Orange was IH #3195, Nason Code 6041, PPG Code 60798. Fire Orange was available in '74 & '75, possibly others yaers also...

    There are a couple paint places locally. I use the one on Sunrise blvd as it near my house. If you have a sample color you can just match it up to a color in the there books. I done this a few times and it works out good. They have all the old tractor colors too. Fire Orange I would suspect as a bit of red in it.

    I bought some Massey Ferguson Red and it was Fire ORANGE. I wanted more of a red with some orange to make a fire red. 2-3 years ago it was a $100 for a gallon of urathane.

    not the best pic, but you can see it's not red. $29 a gal here.

    Good information.

    The place on Sunrise Blvd was the place the qouted me the 400 dollar price. I have used them before and the sell good paint. However the Scout is no show car.

    I am considering this now

    Good price for all those items. Smoking good deal.

    I think there are 2 places, this is the one on the right as your heading south, right on the conner and just past all the junk yards. The tractor paint holds up well, but after a couple years will start to fade.

    If you have a paint chip you are trying to match TCPGlobal does a color match for around $40. Considering the price of their paints it is not a bad price to pay for exactly as you want.

    My 800 is Omaha Orange PPG Shopline paint it was about $150 a gallon two years ago, from my local PPG dealer. It was a single stage urethane. A year later I am happy with it, I shot it with a cheap harbor freight HVLP gun.

    Wow great information guys.

    Tinting myself is out of my league, a custom color match for 40 bucks is reasonable

    I wish I could find a good picture of Fire Orange next to Omaha Orange

    To me orange just seems like a good color for Scout

    Mike where did you buy the PPG?

    Thats what I was thinking, just add some red to it:D

    you might be able to buy a qt of red from the online place and add red until the orange is a bit more Fire Orange:punk:

    Get a qt of the Massey Ferguson Red from TSC and see it you like it. They sell the thinner and hardner there too.

    I almost like the omaha orange better. Even though my scout is a mutt I wanted to paint it a stock color.
