DIY curb rash repair for wheel style 321

I just finished the repair. Tried Wurth wheel paint, PPG machine measured costumed color, and Duplicolor Ford "Silver frost". Wurth is the worst match, and Duplicolor is actually really close. So FYI if you need to paint the wheel, save yourself some money and time, just get Duplicolor from O'reilly's

Do you have a picture of the wheel after repair?
I just had the curb rash fixed on my car and as I watched the guy do it, it seemed pretty easy as DIY. He used some proprietary silver paint that his company supplies. I read that VW Reflex Silver is very close but is hard to find locally. I bought Duplicolor silver wheel paint and will try it hoping match will be close on my wife’s X5.

Lucky you! I deleted the photos but found the link to imgur I used when sharing with friends.

It is not a 100% match, but very close.
