1970 Chevy Camaro Wheel Color
Posted by medix218 on Friday, June 01, 2018 1:48 PM

Hello modelers!  I'm building a factory stock 1970 Camaro Z28 and I know the wheels are gray; however, I'm not sure which gray would be most appropriate to paint them so they look like OEM equipment.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Model master Metalizer gunmetal would work. It is designed to be airbrushed, but I brush it on small surfaces.

I ordered the 1/2 ounce bottle.  I'm not much of a fan for spray cans and prefer to spray with my airbrush.

Should work good. I'm not guaranteeing a match, just from my memory it should be close.

I appreciate the information.  I'm going to airbrush it on some scrap plastic this week to see how it looks.

I sprayed the color and I think it does look very close to an OEM pic I've seen for this car.  Thank you for the suggestion.
