    Default Where to purchase Ohlins yellow paint?

    Hi All,

    Getting the sled ready for ice and wanted to paint my coils on my ohlins but not sure what color would be a match?

    thanks

    I found that cub cadet yellow touch up paint is almost a dead on match! You can get it just about any place that sells cub cadet tractors in a aerosol rattle can. Holds up well to boot!

    This is what I found for a paint code. Anyone know of a rattle can color that's really close?

    I bought that Cub Cadet yellow at Tractor Supply and it's so close that you'd have to be extremely picky to notice any difference in the factory Ohlins yellow.
    I'll be right home honest.

    If I have to explain it you wont understand.
