Paint colour

Hello. Have a 1969 S4 in Cirrus White with Argent Silver bumpers. Is it possible to get touch up pots anywhere? With thanks!

Are you touching paint chips or planning a local repair ?

Go to your local paint retailer, lookup the paint code and ask for sample pot or some even put it in aerosols now.

Paint chips. Looking for sticks rather than aerosol. There's not a paint code list that we have access to anywhere. Thanks for the help

Lotus Elan Cirrus white, paint code L04
ICI code P0309049
Pinchin & Johnson 6170X0540 A036
Any "Autopaints" outlet near you should be able to mix an aerosol up, then spray it into an old aerosol can top. . My local one has all the old paint codes.

That's great. Big help. Thank you. The Argent Silver is maybe not a Lotus colour?
