I am quite sure Brilliant Silver is the silver used on ST Line. From what I understand, Sparkle Silver was succeeded by Brilliant silver in 2008. So I reckon SWMBOs alloys are Brilliant silver.(cropped photo taken with my phone)

Alloys on both my 2004 Rover 75s I know for certain are Sparkle Silver. The Kuga Alloys have a somewhat metal look.

Scooby does a Siver alloy for the Kuga, I was going to ask if he could send me a touch up sample to try on one of SWMBO's alloys that has blistered, but never got round to it.

I may give them a try. A couple of my spokes are starting to deteriorate and it would be good to catch them before they get worse.

If you spotted the 1990-2011, that is some serious typo.
I have nothing to do with Scooby.
One other thing. The primer might be ok, doubt if the base is cellulose so best to ask, not sure about the clear coat either best to ask what it is also. If you are doing it at home outside, I would go for non iso 2k clearcoat, use a good respirator. Pretty sure it can be bought in rattle cans, I use a DeVilbiss.

I read that all ford wheels where moondust silver in the 2000 era but times change. I may try a moondust silver touch up on mine and report back. We have a paint supply shop near us who can match just about any colour and all he needs is a sample of what the original is. I will check next time I go as any automotive paint supplier should be able to do the same. He matched the silver for my motorbike swinging arm perfectly.

Ahh. You could be right. About 3 years ago I made a Predator helmet to wear at Motorcycle shows and GoldWing events.

I do not know where it came from, but I had a ford Moondust Silver rattle can, so I used it to spray the helmet, and gave it 3 coats of 2k clearcoat. It is still on the shelf, and there is some left. So as the sun will be out all day tomorrow, I will pop the wheel off and repair the blister. Will take some close up before and after shots, as soon as the clearcoat has flashed over, will post the results.

Ok. repaired the blistering using Moondust Silver. Being such a small area, it was difficult not to apply the base coat too thick. It seemed to me to be more metallic than the original. I blended it towards the hub, but the original is not Moondust

Have some sparkle silver somewhere if it is still any good I will try it.

Waiting for the update. So not moondust then. Different amounts of clear lacquer may alter the colour.
