Lotus friendly body shop


Edinburgh 111s

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have recently acquired a SVA sport 160 to accompany my Exige 350. 
it’s a great low mileage example, but needs a little work to make it perfect. It’s a little project and I hope a keeper. 
 

as with any 20 year old Lotus, it has a fair amount of stone chips on the front clam and the lower sills. I am looking for a lotus friendly body shop in Edinburgh or Midlothian. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Protek in Bathgate have a great name and many Scottish owners have trusted their Lotus to them. They also do the bodywork for Lamborghini Edinburgh and others.

I'm looking to take my VX220 there for a full respray this winter.

Years ago (2010/11) my first Evora was almost written off (Only the offside side panel was left attached to the tub during rebuild. Even the roof was off) being T boned at a junction and it was all handled by Willowbrae Coachworks in Edinburgh who at the time were recommended by Murrays and I went against Insurance company request as they were that adamant you needed somebody who could deal with these cars properly.  I remember a lot of exotics being parked around the place in various states of repair.  I was very happy with them then but who knows 10 years later.

I'd heard Willowbrae had not been great for a period. Best to get recommendations from people who have had work done in say last 2 years.
