I want to get my Thing rims powder coated close or even spot on to the stock silver. Does anyone know the correct color code, etc that I will need to tell the painter?

I just went through all of that mess with Eastwood about two to three months ago. There's really no guarantee of a match. You can choose their rally silver or they're Silver Base. I'm referring to Eastwood colors of course. Eastwood said that their rally silver powder was different from the rally silver paint. I even ordered a spray can of the rally silver paint to do a comparison. I could be wrong but I'm fairly certain the original paint did not have a metallic flake in it. And all three of those items that I mentioned have metallic flake. It was irritating and time-consuming and I finally submitted to something called Silver Sparkle that looks really nice but isn't stock.

If you search around on the samba you will find a lot of mention of rally silver and Argent silver.
