Re: Paint code gun metal grey rs colour
Sounds like you want to do it yourself?
There are some interesting youtube vids about alloy spraying.
You already know the colour you want.. generic gunmetal grey.. tho a slight edge towards bronze could be an option too.
buy the tins and follow the vids or get a pro to do it and say the colour you want. mho
nb: and this isnt a joke: My alloys are a kind of hi silver finish(its a paint/lacquer).They look ok when clean and shiny but funnily enough also look ok after 3-5 days and even 5-14 days of use..
The reason :brake dust !..after 10 days they dont look like clean and shiny gunmetal grey but do look a more aggressive silver grey. I havent left em "unclean" for more than 2 weeks.
I dunno if you see my point ,and its pure coincidence for me ,but a heavy brake dust coating doesnt detract.
