Mk2 Rev 3 Wheel Paint Code/Colour

Post by MellowMatt »

The plastic centre caps of my wheels have flaked and turned yellow for some reason, so looking to give them a quick spray to make them look a bit more acceptable, however I'm not sure what colour paint I need. They're the standard wheels, silver in colour, and from my research it looks like I need paint code WA519F (GM Galaxy Silver), however, this seems to be unavailable everywhere or exceedingly expensive - does anyone know if there's a suitable UK alternative?

I've tried searching, so apologies if I've missed an obvious answer!

Thanks :)

Yes, I'd read elsewhere that the original colour isn't available, and that the GM paint is the best match, however it seems that it's also not readily available anymore, so I hoped there would be another colour that people knew about?

If there's a code for it, it can be mixed, however I don't recollect ever seeing a paint code for any of the MR2 alloys ? Any decent paint supplier should be able to match the wheel colour.

That would be your best bet, take the car (or a wheel) and they should be able to match the colour and mix it.
