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.

That's looks good. There are places online that will custom mix any color in an aerosol can, although it probably cost more that you paid through WalMart.

Awesome color match. But who the hell steals a tow hitch cover. Probably the only other person with a 6 is SO color near you?

Ugh - there's a major shortage of decency in the world these days. Sadly, this was probably some jealous idiot who wanted to take their anger out on you for having something they don't.

Nice job on the replacement!

It could also be that it fell out.
Same happened to me with the front one. Doubt it got stolen.

There are no SO’s anywhere near me.

I’ve found my covers tight, and on some of them I was afraid of snapping the plastic when I had to remove them. Probably some maladjusted kid with nothing better to do.

Mine fell out. It was also in there tight but out getting on it one night and it was gone. Possible you hit a bump just right.
