Question What color is my 95 S320?

I just purchased a 1995 S320 LWB. It is dark metallic Blue with a tan interior. I was wondering if any of you could tell me what the official color names were for this model? The colors from the current model year that are the closest are "Midnight Blue" and "Java Leather".

Also, what recommendations do you have for repairing very minor stone chips and scratches? Is touch-up paint a good idea? Where can I get it?

Thanks much,

Dave

Thanks.

Is yours the same color? Have you had any luck with touch up paint?

under the hood there should be a plate with numbers on it.

There is a site with the color codes and all listed. I dont have the link anymore, but you can use it to decipher your car, its options, colors, etc.

Try searching this site for things like paint codes and see if you can find that link. someone might just post it though.

If you are looking for the exact color of your car to purchase touch up paint, there is a paint number under the hood, on a metal plate, usually found by the hood latch area, by the radiator. Using this number you can call a dealership make sure they have the color you need.

Touchup is almost an art form. I do it, but only when it is warm out, not hot (the car or the ambient temperature) and no wind. It is better to apply a little and go back then trying to do it all at once. With most cars they are metallic with a clear coat, so the touch up kit will have both. First fill in the color let dry and then do the clear.

Shake the paint bottles a lot. Then shake them some more. It is good to try and match the paint temp to the temp of the car.

It is best to experiment in an area where it won't show easily, like under the front bumper. Take your time. Be calm.

I have found that the brushes that are attached to the caps are not the greatest. Sometimes a clean smooth toothpick or even a large needle is better. The paint tends to run easily if it is fresh.

My goal has always been to try achieve an almost invisible repair. Sometimes it goes well. Sometimes not. Do one chip at a time. Did I say take your time and be calm.

Have a smooth rag handy, not a bath towel type. If you screw up and you are quick, you can remove a problem.

Once you are done, the ideal thing to do is to use little pieces of tape and isolate the touch area and use a "little" polish and then your favorite wax.

I have found that a car that has paint that is well cared for chips less and is more resilient.

Hope this helps.

The MB dealership is 25 miles away. I have the touch up paint from MB but I do not have the clearcoat touchup. Will the lexus clearcoat touchup work the same?
