Hi Patrickstar,

Do you know the paint code of the first picture?

That looks anthracite - looks just what i was looking for. Did you have a picture of them fitted to a coupe?

Thanks
Lee

All the wheels are painted using Halfords rattle cans, I got brilliant results with them , as long as you spend plenty of time prepping them.
No picture of them on a car as I do them to sell on. A bit of a hobby.

If they are Halfords cans I reckon that is their Steel Wheels colour, some of mine are painted in that and I like it. Currently got a mix but did have satin black most of this year which went well with the red car and black roof I have. Over the winter I plan to get them all black again.

The first one is Anthracite colour, 2nd one is ford moon dust silver and the last one gloss black.
problem I found with the anthracite one is the shades varied from can to can (no batch codes either ) so used one can on each and one can to do a last coat on all 4 wheels,Top coat of lacquer, then I let's them dry for a couple of months then wet sand and polish.
