Question Touch up paint for wheels??

OK, I tried to search but with out success. I thought there was a thread that talked about a touch up paint for the IS-F wheels. Was I dreaming?
I have a small rock chip and Lexus has no solution. I would like to just do it myself since it is so small. Any solutions other than taking to the "wheel guys"?

Thanks!

I found some at Pep Boys that is very close. Dupli-Color high performance wheel coating. Color is WP102 graphite. It is a spray paint can. I sprayed some in a small container and used a fine paint brush. It turned out pretty good.

Lexus told me that the color code for ISF BBS wheels is 11GY39.
I have searched the web and not been able to find a supplier for it online...
If anybody knows where to get it please post it...

I've used Toyota color code 1E3, Phantom Grey with success. I have it in a brush tube applicator. Took some time to find it, but it works.

Duplicolor Suggestion

Try Dupli-Color's NS 00596 Brushed Pewter. It's a "perfect match" of Nissan's CS3. Only available in the Scratch Fix 2in1; no spray can unfortunately.

Sewell Lexus has confirmed Toyota Paint Code 1E3 and now sell it on their site.

A buyer confirmed that the paint code was indeed 1E3.

Just checked online for Toyota 1E3; companies like ExpressPaint have it in a range of options in addition to the standard pen at $14.95.

For example, a 2 fl.oz. jar is $17.95, a 11 fl.oz. aerosol can is $24.95, and rim paint (whatever that is) is also $24.95. Ouch!

Places like Auto Zone have it in a tube with a brush for much cheaper.
