Paint works fine. Exact color matches can happen with paint.

Powdercoat is more of a... what is available.

Thanks Dave for advise i like the color on darkhorses 88 coupe sterns . Tried to contact him with no luck . MY car is red with gold ordered it it new oct. 1988 .890092 have all my original parts . I like the sterns look .Can not powder coat center caps so looks like paint . Color matched the gold on my basket weave original rims . Increasing back rims to 17x10 putting 285-40r17 on them not alot to chose from in 17 inch tires .

Very nice being an original owner.

Josh (darkhorse) sold his cars, he may be off to new and exciting adventures.
