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.

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.

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?


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....

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

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......

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.
