Wheel colours

Postby haydz23 » Tue Nov 30, 2010 7:43 pm

Hi Sime just a question regards to colours.
Is there a big difference between the colours gun-metal & shadow chrome?
As I'm trying to toss up between the two....

Thanks mate

There is a definite difference between the two. Shadow Chrome doesn't have any metallic flakes in it, but has a metallic look due to the translucent shadow chrome properties. It has more of a 3D look compared to gunmetal. Also, shadow chrome is a more expensive finish to paint. I like both however! Depends on what you are after....SC has more of a subtle bling look and gunmetal/anthracite has an OEM type look. I am painting some anthracite wheels for a customer with an 2010 Liberty. I'll post some pics when they're done later this week.

Cool thanks for the quick reply!
Ahh well looks like shadow chrome is what I'm after, if it's got a bit of bling without being over the top....
Can you please PM me Sime with quote? My wheels are currently the MY03+ Wrx wheels.
