boxster 550 spyder - carrera rims powder coating
 
http://i.auto-bild.de/ir_img/2/0/8/0...3799470e57.jpg

do any of you guys have the 04 boxster anniversary edition? im looking to powdercoat my carrera rims like the one above. but a need a better close up picture of the carrera rims with the gun metal grey wheels. i cant seem to figure out if its only the spokes that are gun metal or also a little bit of the inside lip of the wheel. can anyone help? TIA!

I always believed it was the whole wheel (spokes and rims) - and the colour was 'Seal Grey'

Only the spokes are grey. Google images!

so does it include the highlighted portions of the image i posted? right? beacause i cant see it just cut off anywhere at the side of the spokes.

Wow that is nice. I always have seen powder coating done as matte black or such. I had no idea one could do gloss or overcoats etc... .

I think so. With the shadows in the photos it is hard to tell.

Here is another photo that seems to support your thoughts.

This is a mod I have thought of doing to my Carrera S wheels. I appreciate trail blazers like you. Keep us posted and good luck.

Be sure to make sure it's not just a trick of the light or shadows!
I don't know for sure, but i do know powder coating as i have had the last three cars i own powder coated - including my Daily Driver - and what i do know is that it would be very hard if not impossible to execute that pattern. It's kind of all or nothing. If it is indeed as the picture suggests i would be inclinded to say that the wheel what painted, then cut back and lacquered not powder coated?

wow thanks, for all the new photos. now to figure out what those two colors are.

Battouter 04-03-2013 03:52 AM

Hmmm the center caps with the porsche decal would seem to be a bit of a problem
