    Need to paint a set of 1970 Rally rims. Does anyone know were I can get a pint of DDL-32961? Saw that Camaro Central has a rattle can. Is it the correct color and texture? Thanks

    DDL is lacquer. I don't know anyone around here that mixes it. Might be different in NY. You can go to a PPG store and give them the number (32961) and see if it comes up for a current paint line they carry. If not tell them to call the PPG Color Library and see if they have a formula. If not they will have an "offset".
    Or you could go to another paint company like SW, BASF etc and see if they can cross over PPG's number.

    Does anyone have any experience with OER K89310 spray paint from Classic Industries? Wondering how correct that is.

    I took my wheels to my local powder coating shop and he found a color that was super close to the factory color. No chipping or peeling like what might happen if you use the rattle cans.

    Were they also able to match the "Suede" finish like the original PPG Lacquer? By the way, lacquer is still available here in Tennessee.

    The OER paint is what I used on my "show" wheels. BTW, the back of the wheels should be Dove gray. I think pretty much any brand "Dove" gray is considered acceptable for the back. Whether it's the front or back, unless wheels from different cars are removed and compared side by side, it's hard to tell shade variations of the paints used.

    Back with and without flash. I don't remember what Dove gray I used and don't have any cans left.

    These wheel finishes look similar to the factory dash top finish. Has anyone used wheel paint for the dash?
