I used Motornutz Paint specialists for a match up for the LC5.. I emailed them all the specifics and codes and asked them "Is it definitely Metallic" etc etc... When it arrived iv never known a colour be so far from the original, And it was definitely NOT metallic.. Never even responded to my emails.... The specialist paint mixers are Good, But id avoid the on line ones.... JMO Shayne...Now i've finally grasped that its the polishing it off rather than the putting it on that makes the difference i can see my 90 getting a full rattlecan respray at some point . Rattlecan paint mixed to match from a specialist is entirely different from any of the shelf colour code paint .
I keep my two Vartas connected to an Optimate when not in use.No start again this morning, a jump start from my Sisters Micra saved the day! The batteries are 5 years old this month. The passenger side is the worst dropping to barely 8v on startup, the other one not too bad at 10.9v despite a full charge last week so 2 new Vartas in today.
After the full (separate) charge of each battery last weekend I measured the capacity after standing for 2 days and they were down to 44 & 67%. The previous (identical) pair lasted 9 years.
