Yes it is! And you’re right, it is Daytona. I spoke with the original owner and he confirmed that. Not sure why Lotus Silverstone listed it as Voodoo when they sold it in 2020!

 

Fantastic pics. I don’t suppose you have any more?

Very nice 👍

When it comes to service time, who are you going to use way up in Highlands?

Good question. I’m not aware of anyone up here who would be up for the job, so likely a trip down to Craig in Edinburgh.

Just been speaking to a chap up here with a 410. He has recommended Blitz Motorsport in Nairn. 

On another note… normal weather resumes.

No, but thank you! I can’t wait to get it on when it’s a *little* warmer…!

Some small visual improvements today. Firstly an engine plate from Alias to replace the faded plastic part. Then I replaced the 4 rusted bolts under the access panel with stainless versions. I could see the bolts through the mesh so it was bothering me. 
 

I’m now mid way through a machine polish to get the paint up to standard, and will follow up with a nice later or two of wax when I’m done.

I’m replacing a few, I’m putting black ones in the spoiler side plates instead of the silver ones that are on it currently. Thanks though!

Not the most interesting of updates but the latter part might be of use to someone at some point. 
 

first, I fitted a private plate. I’ve always like short plates on cars and the standard plate looked enormous hanging to the front of the car. 
 

Next up, the latch on the boot wasn’t catching properly and was requiring too much of a shove to close it. I tried some adjustment to find it was struggling to open. Then the handle in the cabin gave way…

From what I have read online there are a few different variants of the handle. In my 2018 it is on the passenger side, which I believe was moved to the drivers side on later cars. I have the ‘upgraded’ lever with a metal plate that reinforced the bit where the wire sits. From looking at the lever is it seems the wire pulled out the side and has snapped off part of the plastic.   

The lever is a part from an old Jag - the bonnet release. Part number hnc2560ad.  I have ordered a replacement but as you can see there are actually two grooves with only one being used in its application here. I was wary about trying this side whilst the boot was still stiff, so I used pliers to pull the cable in the cabin and make adjustments. In terms of adjustments to the latch this is what I learnt… loosen off the large brass nut at the top of the pin. I actually used a plumbing spanner for this as it was over the 20mm range of my regular spanners. Once loose you can turn the pin with a flat head screwdriver at on the end of the pin. I found my pin needed to be moved out so that it was longer and therefore caught easier, so one turn anti clockwise did the job and make the cable far easier to pull. Also, the pin must be orientated correctly with the flat sides facing directly to the front and rear of the car. 

I then reinstalled the lever (just 2 bolts) with the wire in the second slot. Although the wire is now sitting at a bit of an angle it’s working perfectly. I have the replacement on its way so will just keep it as a spare incase I need it.
