    Thanks Guy’s

    I’m going to cross reference these numbers and check them.
    The car is going to get the argento Metallic so the contrast has to be noticeable.

    Martin, if you intend to have the wheels repainted, take care that the job is done professionally by somebody aware of magnesium surface treatment.

    There should be a specific treatment with alodine or chromates to ensure that there is a sound protection of mag against humidity penetration and catastrophic cracking corrosion.
    Sound adhesion of a finishing/protecting coating on mag such as paint or powdercoat requires the dichromate intermediate layer.

    Thanks,that wont be a problem.
    We use the correct primers,we use an ppg only system,so pretty bullit proof.
    Our focus is on originalety of the colors because of the high level of restoration.

    I've never seen an original Campy wheel from that era that used clear coat. The ones on my Bora don't have it and they are original in fine condition. It's a fine metallic, probably an enamel. Some Bora wheels even left the lip unfinished and were polished, those with the hubcaps. In decent climates like California that actually worked just fine long term.

    I used an single stage silver enamel on my Miura style Espada wheels which are of horrific original quality castings but really a gorgeous design.

    Ditto on the magnesium treatment.
