    Hi,
    Does anyone know what the color code is for the grey used on steel wheels that were stock on the FJ40's in the 70's?
    Thanks

    I just snagged a can of industrial grade paint at Home Depot that comes in an extra tall can in that grey color. Its not exact, but darn close, finishes nice and glossy (better than I thought for a spray can) and the price was only 4 bucks or something. Did all five of my stock rims with one can and still have some left. Be sure to steel wool the rims really well, and I primed it twice before painting.

    Wheel color

    I realize this is a super old thread, but I told my body shop this color code to do my wheels and he says he can't come up with anything. He tried PPG and another vendor. Is there more I need to be telling him? Thanks for any help or advise.

    Did either of you guys have any luck with that color code? Just bought a set of OEM rims and need to get them painted.

    A freind had a spray can from Cruiser Outfitters that was suppose to be that stock wheel paint, so my body shop guy just matched it as close as possible.
