Theres some rust around the side discharge opening and it can be seen from above, thats why I was worried about matching the color. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it either.Seeing as it's under the deck, Does the color really matter?
I'd just clean it really well and buy an outdoor anti-rust paint and apply it liberally.. Heck, If you wanted to be fancy.. You could use red!
Does it match the older snapper red, or the newer ones? I swear the older stuff used a darker red.I would certainly think a Snapper dealer could get you the official touch up paint, but here's what one fellow (JayC) over on MTF used.
"I discovered that Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Cherry Red spray paint ($4 at WalMart) is a dead-on perfect match for Snapper red."
