Was speaking with another owner this week and the questions came about, what color to use on the wheels to restore to factory gray?

Reaching in my credenza, I found the can of paint from 15 years ago. Here's the info:

DBU3661= GM Code WA7781

For touchup/repairs, Mazda Code 9156 (248B3)

I hope this info is helpful.

This is what was used by Ye Ole Wheel Shop, who's apparently under new ownership:

Re touch-up

will that close up chips to keep magnesium from deteriorating? I've used clear nail polish.

YES!!! Protect bare magnesium from the elements. You can also get the GM Color in touch-up, as well. :beer

I thought Ye Ol used a Mercedes Benz brilliant silver or something for a while?
