    Hello, me and my husband just got our cleaned 5 spokes back and started to paint them with the color we received from Classic Camaro, only to see it looks like a Battleship gray color. Tell us this isn't the correct color is it? YUCK! If there is a name of the right color that be picked up at a paint store or where to order it from, just let us know. Any help would be appreciated, Michelle.

    Sounds like you got a can of "rallye wheel paint" for first gens and vettes. You can check with Eastwood for the correct color, they probably have it.

    Try PPG DCC-32961-P (DCC is a concept code, and the P mean's a prophet formula). - (A prophet is apparently a handheld computer that you can hold up against a paint color - it "read's" the color tone's, and print's out a paint formula ! That's what I was told anyway !?) Anyway, it took me a long time to find this paint code, and according to 10 different paint shop's I called, and PPG directly, this is the proper replacement code for the discontinued DDL-32961, DUA-32961,etc (some shop's may still have the DDL formula , but I could'nt find any in my area), except that it does'nt have the "suede" finish in it. You can duplicate this with some mat clear over the paint by "dusting" or "dryspraying" a coat of clear, and then wet spraying another coat of clear over that. HINT - Make sure you prime the wheel's in a medium to dark grey primer - the DCC-32961-P paint seem's to be very thin. I primed my wheel's with a white primer( just because I was doing some body part's at the same time ) and it took about 10 coat's of paint to get the right tone of grey to cover over the white primer !
