hey def
Thanks alot for your help. It seems the person who sold me the car was incorrect when he said the car was Storm Titanium. The car is Grafite Grey, and I think that the paint supplier just mixed it wrong. I even brought him the front access panels to match it under the machine. The new paint is dark
battleship grey with very little metalflake. I am going to re-shoot it next weekend with paint from a different supplier and manufacter (Dupont this time, PPG the first time). If I can't get it to match this time I'll shoot the whole car, maybe a custom color? Thanks again

There are two Storm Titaniums and two Graphite Greys from Lotus:

B98 Storm Titanium
B121 Storm Titanium
B108 Graphite Grey
B122 Graphite Grey

Did you check your paint code? Driver side, in between the seat and the sill.

Somebody has already mentioned this but I figure I would mention it again to emphasize and save somebody $200 (What I was told it cost to paint the rear clam.): B100 Magnetic Blue is TOO violet.

I took this with my phone to send to my buddies with a tag line similar to 'FML.'

Hello everyone, I'm new here...

I just wanted to confirm that the color chart posted earlier is correct, and the color code for 2005 Lotus racing green (metallic) is B86 (748065 Dupont code).

I tried contacting lotus directly and I didn't get a response.

If anyone can double confirm this, or assure me that the chart is in fact correct. It would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
-Nathaniel

Hey Randy
I'am a new member, first time on Lotustalk.
I have a problem that I see you have helped others with.
My 2008/09 elise is "Isotope Green" paint code B132, Primer value shade 1 in water based Dupont. Can anybody give me additional info to give to painters, the Dupont rep had no reference to this colour and was no help.

Any help appreciated. Cheers Greg.

Paint problems - Saffron yellow.

I've resprayed the front clam after repairing the clam.

The result was old problem: now the part resprayed seems a little dark and lightned by the lights on the streets it appears some like orange not SY like the rest of the car.
Any suggestion on how to match well?

Wich kind of primer shade must be used on clam?
It's better order the paint on factory?

Yes.

I used to allow html code on the forums.. but became convinced it was not worth it due to potential exploits by bad people. And I can't edit old posts to fix this.

There are some very shady dealers in the Lotus business.

Metallic flake concerns

We have painted over forty Lotus colors and not one of them has metallic flake in the clear, besides, it does not make sense based on the way flake is designed to reflect light in the base or mid coat of the paint itself.

If someone has a paint code that verifies the metallic flake in the clear coat we would love to know about it.

Can anyone comment on why Lotus would makre two versions of these colors? Mine ST has B121 listed on the sill, so I guess the info in the first post is not relevant?

Thanks.

B121 & B122 is better IMO than the previous but IIRC, it had to do with something regarding certain attributes of the paint...I can't remember what it was

i am looking at ads for a yellow elise to buy. a couple times i see the description as 'SOLAR YELLOW' instead of 'SAFFRON YELLOW'. are there two different yellows made by lotus for the elise? DId they change the name but it is the same color? Is the seller listing the color wrong?

can anyone clear this up for me? I don't want to drive a few hundred miles to look at a car that is the wrong yellow.

1990 Ferrari 348TS....yellow
2008 Jeep Wrangler...yellow
1992 Ducati 907IE.....yellow
2004 Suzuki DRZ400s yellow

They are two different yellows as follows:

It is only when you get closer and in certain lighting conditions that you can tell the difference. Personally I would go with Saffron (my car's color) because it is so similar in color and so much easier to repair with those pesky rock chips. Pearl colors can not be blended and the entire panel needs to be resprayed to match, sometimes the whole car. Between the two go Saffron.
