Burnt orange is the only one that hasn't been played out or makes me feel sick

TheFinanceGuy 01-24-2013 02:40 PM

Grey.

I'm in the process of changing mine from gun metal to BBS gold and replacing the bolts since they're showing a bit of corrosion.....
With your CB and my AW we can really sport any color we want without a base color clash.:thumbup:

Depends on what side of the pond you're on.

SCJon 01-24-2013 04:11 PM

Those Canadians tend to spell stuff strangely too (cue Ed's arrival) But I myself prefer grey.

I think the "word" (if you can call it that) "gray" is an abomination.

Also, why didn't anyone else vote Pink? A real man can accept pink into his life. Plus it would look baller on a black car.

uughhhh i still dont know what color to usee!!

dc_wright 01-25-2013 08:28 AM

LOL, there's not even a consensus here on how to spell grey/gray and you thought you'd get a straight up color choice from this group? :rofl::rofl::rofl:


Go with what you want Franklyn, it's only paint and if you don't like it you just buy a couple more rattle cans....

Eight Thirty 01-25-2013 08:46 AM

im getting it powder coated.... lol

Kdoherty 01-25-2013 09:51 AM

purple.

dc_wright 01-25-2013 10:08 AM

Roger on the powder coating! So long as they use a lower temp cure cycle the plastic center caps should be OK.

Eight Thirty 01-25-2013 10:16 AM

didnt even think about that........ fuuuuu

dc_wright 01-25-2013 10:37 AM

Sorry! Didn't mean to drop a turd in your punch bowl.........

If they can't powder coat the center caps, you might be able to get some color matched paint to do the center caps or just clean and paint your hubs and run with no center caps. I've seen both ways and they still look good. IIRC Fazda doesn't have center caps on his 5's......

Shigeta 01-25-2013 11:53 AM

Hmm.. Didn't know you could PC the caps. I was trying to figure out how to match them.

It's something the powder coater will need to be experienced with. You can get powder coats that have a glass transition temperature in the 350F range. Most plastics should tolerate that without melting, but the question is if you would get warping during the cool down.
