Jack and lug wrench color... paint codes?
« on: March 11, 2009, 03:46:09 AM »
There were a few posts a year or so ago, re bumper jack and lug wrench color.  Consensus seems to be gray on the jack base, and mechanism, but has anyone identified a specific spray can color that is close to the original color, or were there variations depending on the mfg of the jack?

Re the lug wrench, I had two originals (one was gray and one was black)..  the blakc one may have been repainted.   Was a consensus reached on that?

Krylon has a Dove Gray that is a pretty good match for the jack mechanism, hook & base.  Parts houses sell paint specifically for this too but I can't comment on those.  Lug wrench should be black-at least consensus for 68!
