SEL Victoria wheel touch-up paint

Post by niggly58 » Thu Jun 13, 2019 1:48 pm

Having picked up a chip on one of my wheels I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a VW paint or an aftermarket paint available. The wheels are a darkish metallic grey. Paint code?

I had a small chip appear on the inside of one of my spokes I was going to get this

However a friend with a bodyshop had a Ford with Shadow chrome alloys. It seemed a close match . Mixed me a small amount and its pretty good match. He couldn`t find a code for the VW paint on the wheel.

Unfortunately, the LZ49 paint I received is too dark for my wheels. The bottle lists it as 'Pretoria Grey'.
The Victoria Falls wheels are quite a light silver compared to the tungsten type wheels on other VWs.
Have to keep looking.....

Have you checked with the manufacturer. The paint label may have a website or contact details where you can check to see if they have the relevant product?

If you are able to either take a wheel off or get under the car it’s stamped on the back of the wheel. One code for silver option and one for grey.
