I know,I know...it's been asked like a gazillion times I did a search and found zilch! Anybody got the code for Argent Silver for rallye wheels? I've got 16 rallyes to paint this weekend and need the code.Thanks

Obviously you know that the old lacquers we used years ago and that are now not even legal in some areas are inferior to a good acrylic enamal paint.
I've got a can right here in front of me. The number is C8703A. Don't be scared by the application, which is 1987 AMC wheel - Bright Aluminum. I found it to be a near perfect match for the rallye wheel with the right amount of gloss (or flat depending on your point of view.)
Now paint those wheels!

Actually the correct Dupont is a lacquer and is still made... I will look for the code. I just painted some wheels and they match my orginals perfect...
