    Wheel paint code Middle East Cars

    My car is vin 11789, and if you look at this thread you can see that it has some (Delorean) historical significance.

    http://dmctalk.org/showthread.php?17...East-Deloreans


    I've had this car since Jan 2017, and in my spare time I have spent some time working on this "project".

    Mine was sprayed red, by the dealership in Dubai, and when I got it, it was back to stainless - albeit it needs a total regrain.

    I see evidence of the red sprayjob as I work on the car - the wheels were also sprayed red, then a previous owner resprayed them a silver colour.

    The 50 exports all used the earlier dark wheels.

    With this in mind, I am using a local company here in Cardiff,UK, to totally refurbish the wheels and they need to know paint/powder coating codes.

    I can't believe how "guarded" a secret this is after 35 years, and have spent some time trying to track this information down.

    Before (hopefully) you guys chime in:-
    • There is nobody close to me that has a Delorean with the same wheels
    • I cannot have mine scanned as the original colour is no longer on the wheel
    • I cannot justify spending UK prices on a new set of wheels
    • I would like to keep my wheels "as is" - that's what the car came with


    So has anybody got the codes for my wheel please?
    Thanks

    I don't always drive cars, but when I do, I prefer DeLoreans

    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"
