Logo for Elite S2.2

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am having a set of mats made up for my series 2 Elite and want to have the logo "Elite Series 2.2" embroided on the front ones.

Has anyone got a decent image of this so I can send to the company making them as they can't seem to find a decent one to use.

 

Many thnaks

Hi Mike,

Sometime next week I should be able to create an image file or pdf with a logo. First of all do you want it to look like the small badge on the centre section of the dash, or in the outline style used on the covers of the parts and service notes? Also I think Lotus only used S2.2 rather than series - but I may be wrong.

May I also add you to the list I'm compiling of S2.2 owners? It's th 40th birthday of the Elite/Eclat S2.2 in 2020 and a few of us are interested in doing something!

Cheers, Richard

Hi Richard

Thanks for quick reply and great news that you can create the image.

I would would like it in the style of the service notes with the wording "elite S2.2" as I think you are correct that Lotus used this wording and not "series"

If this could be sent in pdf format then I can forward it on to the trimmer.

I actually have two series 2 elites and a series 2 eclat riviera so wouls be interested in hearing about any events that you have planned for the 40th birthday.

 

Many thanks again

 

Mike

The mystery of S2 and S2.2. My car had a paint job with the same stickers afterwards like the presscar with one side S2 and second S2.2. Did we ever get the complete answer from the factory how it should be?

 

@Mike: Which Riviera do you have ? Please post some details and pictures :)

I can feel a convoy happening. We had about a third if all MOT'd Elite S2.2's at Brands a couple of years ago, and a couple of Eclat S2.2's, so time for a reunion and a roadtrip.

Hi Don

My Eclat is Black and looks like a JPS although Lotus never did one officially did one for this model. Ibought it a few years ago from David Rowett and have slowly been getting various jobs done.

I got it back on the road this summer and have been using it regularly over the summer and on the odd sunny dry day in the Autumn.

Will take some picture over the weekend and post them up .

 

Thanks

 

Mike

My old man had a Gold Eclat 2.2 many years ago, if you're compiling a list and I can find the reg, would be very interested if it is still about.

DFP looks very nice, I particularly like the satin bumpers, I’ve a black S1 and struggled to find a set of images of an Eclat in black which hadn’t had the bumpers repainted gloss at some point.

I’m returning mine to Satin + the front spoiler + possibly the Cill’s

Are the cill’s on your car satin as well?  I don’t suppose you have a photo that shows them?

many thanks

the 3 logos are separate.......

you could buy them...scan them and then get them stitched......????

 

just a thought

The problem with those images is that the outline of the overlapped lettering shows through. This was something that I struggled with for a while when developing the Elite/Eclat 45th anniversary logo, and the Eclat 2.2 script for Mike.

Cheers, Richard

I'm confused as to what you mean?.....

The original text was overlapping with only an outline of each letter.........

Sorry if I seem a bit thick......lol

Thanks

Sorry Gareth, I had probably had a drink too many! The problem I had was getting the outline of each letter to show through, rather than be hidden. Duh!
