    Snowflake Wheels

    My 1983 R100 has snowflake wheels which are painted gold. Paint is unavailable from BMW. Does anyone know of a color match paint from another source?:

    There's a paint supply shop in my town that can scan and reproduce old colors in modern paints. I've had them mix pints for spray guns, fill rattle cans, and even the little bottles of touch-up paints. The prices are reasonable and you get it while you wait. If your nearest town is big enough for a couple body shops, you'll probably have one of these, too.

    Good luck,
    Bob

    Holt's BMW in Athens, Ohio sells the original BMW paint. They will paint your wheels for you as well.

    Very nice. What did you prime them with? Er, what did you clean them with?

    But they don't sell one that matches Phoenix Gold, which is the question at hand.
