Guys - question for you.

I'm going to to the mesh grill mod. When you do that, you wind up with a bunch of tiny holes in the boot lid. Most guys plug the holes with Ace-bough hole plugs. They are black and would stick out like a sore thumb on my saffron car.

I'd like to paint them Saffron before I install. Don't want to use the touch up pen (brush marks), would prefer to spray.

Anyone know of a source to get a good PROPER Saffron code (B106) in a rattle can? They are tiny plugs, so a perfect super duper match is not that critical.

I see automotivetouchup and paintscratch both sell them. Anyone buy them? Thoughts on the quality/match?

Thx

Does anyone can help me find the Paint code on my 07 Exige? Where will the label be located? Usually what letter does it start with?

Thank you

Artic Silver

Hi there,

I have a 2005 Artic Silver B92 Elise. I went to order touch up paint (just in case) and the people at Automotive Touchup said b92 is for 2001-2 Lotus.

My tag does say b92.

Randy at the beginning of this post said artic silver late in 2005 was replaced with b103.

What I need clarity on is if they are the same color; i.e. b92 and b103.

Thanks!

Jeff

Maybe this has been answered but I am looking for the name/paint code for the metallic green Lotus uses on a lot of their motorsports cars. A very unique green and I am not sure I have seen it on any of the codes listed, but as the colors shown are very basic it is hard to tell.

So I have attached a bunch of photos of the color I am looking for.

It is hard to tell from pictures, it could be Lotus Racing Green (LRG) code B86 or Metallic Racing Green code B119.

Is this your car? Open the doors and look on the inside of the sills, next to the seats. The later cars have a sticker with vin and paint codes listed.

If you have the vin, get a hold of Andy Graham https://www.lotuscars.com/en-GB/en-GB/certificate-provenance/

If this is not your car and you do not have a vin, Andy might still be able to tell you.
