On the final Esprit, the OZ Nova's were high power silver and the paint contained an agent which reflected UV back as visible light, hence their 'high power' if that helps :)

Yeah, it was already yellowing when I got the car (2yrs old) but it’s bad now! One of these things I can’t get hugely excited about spending money on though 😕

Is this the car that was for sale at Lotus Silverstone a few months ago? Nice motor!

Mine's the same - I put black shark fins over it instead......

I did a wrap on my roof to hide some of freaky stone chip damage and edges that were peeling 

after 3 years it’s not perfect but the wrap does help distract the appearance 

likewise the shark fin helps mask the stone chipping

Got any images Jim? I did consider this (mainly cos Inlike the aesthetic of the shark fins) but assumed I’d need to take off the existing PPF first. (Maybe you did this?)

No - cleaned and straight over the top (checked a 410 at Strattons and that's what the factory do too) - takes the eye off the yellowing a bit and they've been fine....IMG_5638.thumb.JPG.2489a771da9f091e5e82a49a8bfc5909.JPG

Likewise my wrap guys who do work for Silverstone Lotus just applied it over the PPF areas 

as I said done 3-4 years now it’s still in place looks ok it cleans up ok I have even applied a little polish to get a wee bit darker 

I am sure the shark skin has helped protect from further stone chipping ?

I've just fitted the shark fins myself to an Arden Red S (Sports Racer look) car and put on top of the PPF.  Used a bit of T Cut (because it was the first product I found in the cupboard that would do the trick - not necessarily as it was the best thing!) carefully where I was going to fit to remove any unwanted surface contaminants and it was an easy fit.  Bought the 2 bits via that recent e-mail about Lotus Parts.  They come on a template larger than the fin itself cut to the wheel arch profile and the lower/upper clam line so any idiot can do it - as I have proved 😝

I too just stuck mine on top of the existing PPF after a quick wipe over with some isopropyl alcohol to get rid of any polish/wax residues.

I don't know about this email from Lotus Parts. When was this?

Probably connected to the various dealers announcing the online lotus parts store. eg

May be an image of car and text that says "SHOP GENUINE LOTUS PARTS & ACCESSORIES ONLINE SHOP NOW LOTUS"

Thanks. For many years in the 90s and early 2000's, Lotus did a regular but sporadic parts sales list. So many bargains.....once an Esprit Sport 300 chassis for not much...I was tempted but didn't. 

I did buy a few 340R spares.
