You could have also gone to your local Lowes and ordered Valspar rattle cans in Cub Cadet Yellow. It takes 3 or 4 days to come in.

Well it seems you didn't have something right before, or in your painting process. Cause there are a number of members who use this paint and have great results, myself included...

I jus shot my 104 the other day, OUTSIDE, in IOWA, in the middle of FEB!! w/iron guard. Turned out super.
Can't wait to get started on reassembly!

Another really close match for the yellow is Rustoleum #280145 Transport Yellow, hard to find around here though.

I'm restoring a 102. The "majic paint" from TSC in quarts isn't horrible if you use reducer and hardener. It takes 2 or three coats and 24hrs between coats. Their rattle cans are horrible all the way around. No coverage and no pressure coming out. Gonna try urethane enamel next and see how that works. Just my two cents

Looked a little lighter in color than the Magic paint. Has any one used it on their Tractor? Also saw a Rust-oleum Yellow Eq. Catipaller rattle can spray paint. Any one used this and if so, how does it compare color wise to the Cub Yellow spray can from a Cub Cadet dealer? Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for your help. Have a great day.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
