Some Pandas had silver wheels and some had Old English White. In theory most would have been silver, but a theory is just that, and OEW was also used. Painting is the same as with any surface: Preparation is the key. Shot blast / wire brush to remove rust. Rust converter/sealer. Primer. Rub down, paint, rub down, paint, etc as required. There are places that do powder coating but the colour will not be an exact match for original, it just depends on whether you are concerned about that.
