What paint is the most color matching of the yellow on the Falcon?

I've found some Striker rims in my spare bin that needs a refurb.

Not sure if you can get it where you are but I have had good luck with the Krylon fusion brand paints, they stick well to out type of plastic ( lexan bodies too )
From somewhere out in the wilds of central Ontario.

Or find plastic primer for automotive bumpers like ixell brand. And auto paints.

IIRC the yellow plastic parts on the Falcon are the same as CVA shocks wherever you find them - half free-range egg yolk, half unripe lemon. If you want to use Tamiya PS paints, TS47 Chrome Yellow would be a better match than TS-16 Yellow, airbrushed X-8 acrylic Lemon Yellow would work (evidently Tamiya were looking at a ripe lemon), my "favorite" Hycote - Daytona Yellow and Ford Signal Yellow would both be wrong, but AA yellow could work.

It's all supposition/opinion, look on Google image search for real world examples of various yelllows, never trust the colour on the caps, paint books/swatches aren't that great either.

Thank you :y:

That's was the info I hoped to get ;)
TS-47 it is lol.

I take white primer will be best for the that color?

Are you looking for a set of Yellow falcon rim's ?
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)
