center cap color

Hello I managed to score some new caps still wrapped in the new bags. I'm taking them to my paint guy to have them shoot it with the color gun and make up some paint that matches. will try to get them to list it on there web page to order. does that sound like something that would help? they can put it in spray cans.
Jim

Thanks.

Re: center cap color

If your paint shop has a spectrophotometer he can get an exact match by scanning the actual center cap.

Re: center cap color

I painted mine black when I had my wheels done in champagne..a little bit of a Dodge Avenger effect but it looks ok. I did consider having it matched by the shop. I was lucky in finding a rattlecan with exactly matching metalizing goldish paint for touch-ups, so I could have them match someday but I rather like the effect; it goes well w/the desert sands here in Tucson.

Re: center cap color

Could you post the brand of paint, base, and colour formula?

Also were the caps for the darker or lighter coloured wheels?
