So is this actually the correct way to paint these, with the outer (front side) of the lip Dove Gray like the back and inside of the wheels? I painted my set of date matched 'show' wheels this way years ago, but for the life of me can't remember why. I don't think I've actually seen any in person this way.

Buddy, The entire front of the wheel was painted with the Lacquer "Cast Looking" Formula.

Anybody reading this know of a PPG Jobber that can still mix the above formula with SUEDE additive..
I have a very old unopened pint can that I'm thinking would be bad ??????

If the can was stored correctly meaning it never froze, then Id bet that its still good. I would think a pint would refinish the face of a couple sets of wheels.

You're probably going to need to reduce/thin the lacquer quite a bit prior to spraying so you should easily have enough for the wheels.

I usually start out at 1:1 reduction and see how it flows out. Nice thing about this application is that you won't be sanding between coats as you want to end up with a pebble finish.
