Sakhir Orange Metallic (B50) Spray Paint

Guys,
Just thought I’d share with the community.
Had my rear tow hitch cover stolen... unbelievable.
Got a new one primed from dealer.
Needed to color it.
Googled around and stumbled across ‘B50 Sakhir Orange Metallic for M4’ at Walmart...
Got a can of the base color and can of clearcoat with it. Sold by company called ‘ScratchWizard’.
Looked a little dark when it went on, but in the end it is a perfect match.

Very nice. Did you use a prime coat first. The slightly miss match is normal as it is not a mixed colour by a professional painter.

That is pretty sweet I will have to look into getting some. I ended up having my replacement wrapped in carbon

It came primed, but not colored.
Really is quite the match for something out of a can.
Just thought to mention to the community for small, non-critical touch work like I had.
