Hello all, I dropped off a set of original turbines to a shop to strip and machine and powder coat. Can anyone please tell me the original paint color code for the slats in the wheels? And which lug nuts I need?

please and thanks

an ORIGINAL turbine wheel uses chrome acorn lug nuts

NO color all el naturel / the fins are polished and the rest is rough aluminum = clear coated afterwards

This is the closest approximation to the stock lug nut I can find. original was a stainless cap version. They show up on ebay from time to time as NOS.
Its just a cheap chrome thing- I thought someone was making a capped nut exactly like Mopar oem but that was before covid
I've never seen a NOS turbine wheel- my one set doesnt look like any paint at all was used like db said.

edit- this one is stainless cap
but different than stock

to verify that they are Chrysler turbine wheels , look on the back/inside for the Chrysler "pentastar" with a chrysler part number
