Grrrr! Curb rash.
 
So I was entering a parking ramp and after I get my ticket, I start up the ramp to a very sharp left. Well, I didn't see the curbing which went completely straight until right before the turn and I hit the curb hard enough to bounce the back end out a good foot or two. So a nice thin scratch about 3/4 of the way around my left rear wheel. Hopefully I can wet sand the scratch out.

I seem to remember reading that a standard grey/silver Porsche touch up paint (Arctic Silver?)is the exact match for the wheel color. Anyone know the exact color?

San Rensho --

This is a great "how to" that I recently followed. I used these same products and it worked out well. The only thing I would stress more than it was in this write-up is to minimize the "sanding area" -- the paint matches but there is a slight difference in the shine/finish, so it works well when fixing scuffs & really minimizing how much surface area you treat & paint.

good job. I tried that myself and it came out horribly. I ended up having them done professionally while getting out a dent. But went with a special finish (BMW M3 shadow) instead of sticking with the standard color.
