Who did the respray and, if you don't mind me asking, how much did they charge you?

Hi chaps,  the respray was done by Clint Drake at Wild West Custom paint in Exeter. Absolutely lovely bloke, and the job is excellent.

I stripped the car right down (especially enjoyed taking the bumpers off!) and paid 2.5k, plus a couple if extras (specialist glass removal etc) albeit that it was done as a 'hospital' job as and when he had a bit of free space.

Would thoroughly recommend him to anyone in the area (he did work to my TVR and 944, both of which were every bit as good).

Cheers,

 

Steve

So, how about some pics of the finished job then? :thumbup:

Bit of tinkering before the car comes home tomorrow - scraping the old veneer from the dash (anyone just lacquered the bard masks?) and rebuilding the headlong mounting panels.

I didn't like te veneer either, especially as it was all cracked. So I scraped it off and just had it painted black. You get a bit of texture from the wood, so it doesn't look like cheap plastic. Very happy with it.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Looking good, keep up the good/hard work. Is Sinderella going to make it to the ball?

New paintwork looks stunning,  always nice to put the Lotus badge on,  wheels look top notch also,  this will be a lovely car to own and you will benefit from knowing it inside out too, which is an added bonus.

Keep up the great work and the pics coming too

After a bit of an hiatus, there are a few bits going back on now (smallest always take the longest time). A few more photos of the progress....
