881A Colour

Post by Peter »

Am refurbing my 881A wheels.
Ford do not have a colour code for the paint so does anyone know the nearest spray paint I can buy to match existing? Thanks

I don't think it's possible to say. I do recall it was a 'flat' finish not at all shiny. These days I use Halfords aluminium spray cans.

Whatever you use there will be someone, somewhere, who will say it's wrong.
