[xk] disc wheel rim color

I am repainting the wheel rims on my BRG 53 OTS . The outside of
the rims are BRG but it appears that the insides of the rims are a
ruddy brown primer. Should the entire rim be body color? Thanks
for any help.–

Hi Norm,
The disc wheel should all be one color. It sounds like someone was trying to get
“jazzy” at one time in the car’s past. ;-))
All the best,

In reply to a message from Knight Martorell sent Wed 27 Apr 2011:

It may be that the original paint on the inside has flaked
off or been damaged by brake fluid leaks. The disc wheels
are a good place to find original paint. Mine have some of
the original paint in there, and even inside the rim hidden
by the tire. The outside was painted several colors but
nobody ever repainted the inside.–
