Lotus Elan

Paint codes

PostPost by: richard » Thu Dec 17, 2020 10:11 pm

I have a 1971 +2 with Colorado Orange paint, however, I'm having difficulty getting Lotus Corp. to respond. Does anyone know the color codes?

Thank you all for responding. I'm just adding the photos as someone suggested.

Tim,

Glasurit don't appear to have a direct code for the siver bumpers, but I , like others before, have found Ford Australia Silver Fox Met to be a very close match. The Glasurit number is 01652.

Tim - do you know what red might have been used pre-67, as on Sevens?

Henry,

Almost certainly that would be Carmen Red, which was an original S1 Elan option, but had no Lotus code. It was a Jaguar colour too.

ICI code P0303097; Nexa Autocolor code 3097
