I found an online company that would match my Shadow Mica body color on my 2007 (1F4 code) for $20 for a spray can. I have been toying the idea of customizing my wheels. They're not horrible, by any means, but in preparation of some new $$$ tires, I had a little time to give it a shot. Some tape, primer, clear coat and off I go. Tires are expensive enough and I didn't want to pay out more $$$ for wheels.

Primer



Base and clear...



One done.

And done.
I bought 2, 12oz cans, but only used 1/2 of 1 can. Perhaps my future CBI bumper(s) I will do body color.. ??
