Need to powder coat

Well, as much as I\'m careful I smashed the left side of my car into the plastic trash can.

Luckily the paint can be buffed. Unfortunately my left front and rear wheel are scratched. I don\'t believe the wheel repair can be brought back to the factory finish (OEM 19\'s).

So I can either replace them under insurance or powder coat them.

If powder coat, any thoughts on a good color with a SSII?

Any links to SSII with painted/powder coated wheels much appreciated. I'm game for black, but perhaps something even more "daring" might be interesting. But not orange

Here is a pic of my prior 997.2 C2S and my powder coat to the OEM wheels

Make sure you do a low temp powdercoat. I have gloss black on the 18s for winter and like the look.
