Question Nissan GTR Wheel Color?

Hey hows it goin guys? I'm not a GTR owner BUT i work at a body shop and i have a hennessey GTR Sitting 5 feet from me. My trouble is that i need to paint the center caps of the wheels, but i am unable to locate the paint code for them. they are a dark metallic grey. Any ideas as to what the color code would be??

Weather or not you guys can offer any help, i'll post some pics of this 700hp beast when it's all done.

Thanks
gill

Hey Gill,
I believe there are different Dark Gun metal gray colors depends on the year that GT-R. If you can reply with the year, others might assist you better. Thanks.

The gun mental color is a custom color, but I believe many start with K11 which is not exact but close to the factory wheel color.

Yeah, it sucks when people give advice that don't know what they are talking about. Good luck though, I hope you find what you need.

FYI, If you re-check my post, you can see I mentioned the wheel color is a custom color, and many other owners started with similar but not exact K11 color code. Unless he has a professional paint guy, that color is the closest you can get off the color codes.

you guys are harsh... i quit the ducati forum for exactly that reason.
In all honesty ATLSupra, i appreciate all the info. i never misread your post and was well aware that k11 may not have been the exact color. considering my computer is IN a mixing room, it took me literally 5 minutes to mix the paint, and another 10 to spray it out. Our paint rep is here and he's clueless too...

So like i said, THANKS for all the info and help.

I agree - this forum is helpful and welcoming.
Pretty much reasonable and enjoyable to read too!
Even if a post may not be accurate, the intentions are usually good and well founded.
