It depends on where you do your research. There is a lot of info here in the How-To's and the Archives have many posts on painting your tractor. How much you want to spend on a restoration job is a big factor. Not all brands sold today are good and match to the original. TISCO is good and budget minded. Steve Dawbrowski did extensive research and found a brand that closely matches the original M2888. Most use hardnere too. Don't waste time and money with the stuff that says it is UV resistant, it is junk. You can contact him and ask what he used. Here's a photo of his early 9N.

The TISCO brand is a close match to original Ford Dark Grey M2888, made by Van Sickle Paint Co, and is for budget minded.
