Default Re: OEM ZCP Rims Color, Best Powder Coat Match?

This isn’t my car but i remember seeing this thread of someone else powder coating in Porsche silver. You can see the color is a bit off.

http://m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=473778

When i went to refinish my Alpina wheels i wanted them as close to that oem finish on our zcp wheels. My powdercoater (Espos powdercoating) gave me booklets of diff brands and samples and looking at the samples the Porsche silver by Prismatic looked the closest. Don’t get me wrong i love them on my e30, but you won’t be able to 100% replicate the oem finish by powdercoating.

I’ll try to post pics tomorrow of my Alpinas....it might not be a good comparison since i chose a semi-gloss finish....but it has a metallic finish (not the larger flakes like in other generic silvers)in it like the ZCP wheels although the hue of the silver has a hint of blue in certain lights
