Default Where To Buy Rim Paint?

Looking to purchase gunmetal paint for my wheels. I went to Lordco and it seems all they have are flat black or grey. Grey didn't turn out too well...*gag*...so, anybody know where I can pick up a few for gunmetal?

Appreciated

Edit: Or any place that will powdercoat them for a reasonable price. I read on a thread : http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...hreadid=138937

that Benjamin Tang powderocated a set locally for his Type R for $120cad. Any direction wuold be great.

Canadian Tire has the wheel paint by Duplicolor and it comes in a gunmetal type of grey.

I boguht the grey ones and now one half of my car looks real fruity. It turned out in a really disgusting grey..kind of like the grey im typing at the background now! It's just frustrating not being able to find a nice gunmetal like on the RSX-S.

Legacy GT wheels. I'm contemplating bronze or gunmetal. Bronze would be great because I don't like the flashy gold/white. Then again, gunmetal looks very nice with white because its just clean.

rainbow powdercoating in coquitlam. should be in the phone book. someone sent me a link about this from the revscene.net site but i don't have it anymore. if u have already painted it once u better budget for a sandblast job too

Go to Lordco and get their engine enamel. Cast iron is the colour you want.
