well mate.. i went through ALLL of the colour chips at steves .. and 2 of them i picked WITHOUT knowing what they were .. 1 from the lexus palette and the other from the toyota .. BOTH of them were the same colour code .. 3R1 Crystal Shine also known as Mica Matadore red which is what ive been after for a while .. like steve said its a sign... im not convinced its the same as the current Vermillion on the lexus's .. seems to be a different but similar colour code but steve can convfirm that through is special ways if its the same.
either or they are both great colours (even if its the same) .. i saw them both on the way to steves the other day .. drove past me and i was like YES thats the colour. I actually dont mind the more flatter look in the shade which gives it a darker look .. then in the sun as i saw on the M4 .. wholy crap did it sparkle.. definately my colour!
Very nice mate. Could be the same colour as mine when it came out. Did you do a test panel?
yeah i think it might be.. no not as yet .. waiting for steve to let me know.
steve will help me with the silver stripe .. as i want it to be brighter and lighter but of similar texture .. perhaps another lexus silver to match
Mate, do yourself a favor and check out the merc silvers. When I was going to paint my car silver I checked them all out and in my opinion they are the best. Only my opinion though. There is a mazda3 front guard test panel there that Steve did for me. He may still have it lying around.
