Well what do you guy and gals think..........
This is the OER paint for 1970-74 Z28 wheels
Looks great to me but I'd also like a closer picture.
looks great, is this the 2 part paint and clear out of a can?
Just the paint but it comes with two spray heads, I used the white head to paint all surfaces and the black head to give it the surface texture. I sprayed about 12" away to do this, I think it looks pretty good. Closest I've found, the original lacquer is unavailable in my area.
The original wheel is very dirty so it appears darker.
They look great.
On a side note, I was able to just last month buy the Ditzler (PPG) Duracryl lacquer 32961 wheel paint with the suede (texture) additive. This is considered the best matching paint for these wheels. It isn't cheap ($100/pint) but is available, at least in Ohio. I was told that PPG is phasing out acrylic lacquer. Got it from Ohio Auto Kolor.
OEM code 4074
Interesting that the can is dated 10/25/2005
Double J your wheels look fine I am sure OER did a lot of research before they put anything in a can In this pic from Yenko.net I find the area under the trim ring lighter than the rest of the rim face Is this the way they were ? I have a rim and it is lighter also , so I was thinking mine was sprayed although I was told it was original
The yenko 70 on bottom
1972 above with different color in trim ring area also
These are original paint Z wheels I got with my 72 SS when I bought it in 1978. Yes, I still have them.
I do not remember if all of them are gray or black on the back.
The bottom picture is the way mine look. The back of the wheel is a lighter shade of gray. I've seen original NOS wheels different shades of gray from year to year. Makes difficult to reproduce a perfect match. The OER paint is close not perfect but close, We'll see how it weathers over time
