Wish I could remember particulars but it centered around setting the camera's (scanning DSLR) WB using the film emulsion itself, and generally just making sure it's set to incandescent or very very warm overall if not setting it manually.
Your comment about WB led me to have another go at inverting. Yesterday I took a K-01 DNG shot of an Ektar negative. Since it is RAW, I reprocessed it using the incandescent WB setting and it made a huge difference in the final colors.

Here are two versions from the same DNG scan of the Ektar negative. The DNG was processed into a jpeg in ACDSee Pro 6. After that, both were inverted and then color corrected to the best of my abilities, using only Levels and Curves in Photoshop.
The upper image used the in camera Sunny WB setting. The lower image used the Tungsten WB setting from ACDSee.

Thanks!

It expired sometime in the '90s and seems to have held up well. (Certainly better than some of the Agfacolor I shot a while back.) Which is good, as I've got another 2 rolls.

Probably one of the most visited parking lots in the city, judging by the number of people I see stopping at it to take pictures of the CN Tower.

Wow. That made a far more accurate palette. Honestly, I like both.
ACDSee... I used that religiously back in the day. At some point I forgot about it. Excellent program.

Huh. I didn't think I re-uploaded the photo after I posted it. I've edited the post; is it visible now?

Interesting, where does the lens fit in?
According to the manual and depending on which lens you use:

1) Auto Extension tube 1, 2, or 3.

2) Reverse k-mount adapter

3) lens

4) slide holder K

Then you point the camera at a bright light source and shoot. There is a slot at the very top where the slide fits and that end of the tube is opaque plastic.

A pair of additional shots from the same roll. I know that Vericolor was the predecessor to Portra 160, but I'm finding I'm much more of a fan of it than I am of the latter.
