Re: My punto gt3

I had the rear brakes looked at yesterday as one side was sticking a bit , all cleaned up and working fine now , ready for the mot next week . Also Iíve had a slight-buckled wheel for a while ( pot hole probably) thatís been bugging me so Iíve picked up another set and had them painted up a slightly different colour , tried one on while the wheels were off . not sure what the original colour code is itís like a blue/grey ?

Hi Steve hope all is well.

What colour did you use on the wheels?

I have been looking for the standard colour code for years, cant find it at all as yes the standard colour is an Anthrite with a tinge of blue in it.

Re: My punto gt3

Hi Craig , yeah we are good thanks ,
Iím not sure what colour they used , the powder coat firm who did them for me couldnít get the colour I wanted so had to go for something similar which if Iím honest isnít right , itís a bit too light . Some of the guys from the GT owners say a colour that is as close as you can get is ford levante grey .

Re: My punto gt3

surely you could take a factory wheel in a decent paint suppliers and they would colour match.. then it'd just be matter of getting the right amount of metallic in it.

Re: My punto gt3

I got a few spares in genuine colour.

Perhaps this can be my little project and get us a colour code.
