You have some time to order, right?

First, note the paint code. (on the data plate, RH wheel arch in the front trunk, look at the second Link below). If you have gray sills, body color is the first code. (Verify by the paint listing in the Body section of the service or parts manual)

I got EXCELLENT matching touch-up paint at Automotive Touch Up Paint from PaintScratch - Order Pro Grade Paint. You can buy aerosol or brush-in-cap.

Another source I see recently is Lotus Touch Up Paint | AutomotiveTouchup . I haven't used them, perhaps someone else can comment.


Sometimes obtaining a good match can be difficult, as environmental regulations have changed the available composition of the material since the cars were produced. Also, your cars paint may have faded a bit (common on reds).
