Rotor hat paint

Yes but the search function does not work on my device

What is the correct Porsche gray rotor hat paint to get?

VHT seems too glossy..for a good match (S big reds)

I used the VHT Real Red Caliper paint and am very pleased with the results. I got the Porsche stickers off of eBay and followed up with VHT Clear Gloss.

My new OEM rotors look sweet! I think the hat was sprayed with an enamel primer or something because it comes off with lacquer thinner. I'd suggest rebuilders gray or any gray primer. I shot mine with a bright silver to ward off rust a while longer.
