|What colour to change the car?||27/04/03|
..But in light looks a bit girlie.
Its amazing how difficult this can be so I decided to generate some approximations to help.
For this I uses an image from www.lotusespritworld.com of Mike Stringer' s Azur blue Loti. This is becuase tweeking the settings on my flat (non metalic) car just didnt give the right results. Also the blue has a better balance and made HUE changes easier. In addition it also has the newer wheels which I'll be looking at getting at a later stage (cost of paint job permitting!).
|Orig. Nice but would not be unique.|
|Kingfisher Blue. This is nice but no one seems to like it.|
|Probably too Green.|
|Deep Copper, Second choice!!. Just need to be carefull it does not look toooo brown.
Peugeot Metalic gold (B69 Sahara Gold, Dupont HY6) has been suggested.
|Would probably clash with tan interior.|
|Deep Purple, Top choice so far.
Lotus do do a deep purple but its very dark to the point of looking black which does not go down well with the other half.
|My case and point, Too Pink.|
|Red, again ok but not unique. I also find that metalic reds are not red enough. The only way to get a real red is to do silver with a red candy lacquer. I also believe that these fade easily.|
