New performance Super Major - paint supplier?

Hi all,

I'm looking for an (enamel?) paint supplier for my NP super major. Can anyone recommend a supplier. I can get the 'empire blue' normal major colour
    in lots of places but haven't found the new performance shade yet?

    Rgds,

    Brian,

    Is it right that there is nowhere an aftermarket supplier with these paints specially for a NP?

    thanks!

    On the grey-wheeled tractors the colour is a Fordson Light Grey and the blue is New Performance Blue which is not Empire Blue, it is much lighter.

    Re: Super Major Paint

    I have strayed from the Dexta area to here where I don't know much, but since no one else has answered I will say that I assumed the later majors to be the same colour as Dexta, i.e. Empire Blue
    and Howard (rotovator) orange.

    I'm sure someone will correc me if I'm wrong.

    regards

    I've heard buskins too Brian, just checked to see if it was general or a Norfolk dialect word and find buskin boots go back to the ancient Greeks and buskin leggings more recent - we have a girl in the village who goes busking with her guitar in that there Norridge but she wears striped socks..........

    Re: Best primer for Tractol Empire Blue Enamel

    Likewise, although not always with Tractol, absolute cleanliness (Ihave used Hammerite Kurust where blast cleaning not an option, then primer) and grease / oil removal is more important, I always spoil it due to impatience and either too thick a coat or not enough time between coats :x
