[DML] Wheels -- powder coat primer + painted color + powder coat clear finish

This is a copy of a post that I have placed on DMC Talk.  I apologize if
you are seeing it at both locations.

Original Message:
I am planning to have my wheels refinished. The restoration shop
suggested that in order to get the exact OEM silver color, that it would
be best to do the following:

    1. Strip the wheels
    2. Apply a powder coat primer
    3. Paint the OEM silver color
    4. Apply a powder coat clear finish

Does this sound like a reasonable approach? If so, does anyone have the
exact paint code to match the OEM silver color? Maybe even a specific
brand of paint and color number?

Also, what sheen should the powder coat clear finish be: satin?
semi-gloss? .... etc.   I want to be certain that the process and color
are both correct.

Additional Information:
I have a full set of NOS gray wheels that I bought which I have never
mounted any tires on them.

I also have a full set of wheels that have have new NCT60 tires mounted
on them. When I bought the tires, the seller said that he had a set of
NOS gray wheels. He had them powder-coated for me before mounting the
tires and shipping them to me. I think that the wheels are too bright of
a silver. I may be wrong.

In addition to these two full sets, I have the original wheels on my
DeLorean with the fronts having the original NCT60 tires mounted on
them. It is this set that I am considering having refinished and
mounting new Pirelli tires on them for regular use.

I have included a link to a photo of the 4 gray wheels and one of the
silver powder-coated wheels that has the NCT60 tire mounted. I welcome
any opinions on whether the silver wheel is too bright or not.
