Finding RAC wheel color..powdercoat..
 
Okay guys i'm totally stumped.

So to make a long story short I have been tooling around with the idea of powder coating my VMR VB3's for a while. I would really like to do it but the color i've had in mind was the flat silver that the RAC RG4's have. I have absolutely no idea how to get even close to the color i'd like to achieve because the only source I have is pictures on the web.

Anybody have an idea of where I could possibly find out what mixture they used or get close to. I know it's silver but people that have a lot of interest in the brand know what I mean when I say it's definitely a one of a kind color.

Quick google search gave me this. The silver is a very flat but rich color almost like a white tone to it.http://i149.photobucket.com/albums/s...nt-rac-rg4.jpg

Being that I have the wheels in that pic. They may appear flat"ish"
but they are not! At all...
You could just buy mine.

I've heard the closest silver to the RAC silver is Porsche's Arctic silver IIRC....but yeah that pic of the RG4s look flat but has quite a bit of metallic flake under different lighting.....
