  3. I have had a look at the paint codes above, Orange was obviously done in gel coat, however, there doesn't seem to be a corresponding Orange paint?
  4. Most people tend to have the S1 wheels highly polished a not laquered as it flakes off. I see that you can get the wheels polished and then "CLEAR powder coated", anyone had this done?

  6. I'm looking for reputable paint shops would would be able to respray my Esprit, need to have a low bake oven, please could you post names and location. Thanks in advance.
