"New" as in 1960 opened and now falling apart through rust so a "new new" is due to be opened soon.  Should already have been open, but heh, did you know we have bad weather in Scotland.  Apparently the contractors and SNP didn't at the planning stage........

Not sure if you'd heard Al but apparently new steel is not as durable as old. So whilst the new road bridge ( the third of the Forth) is almost finished it will not be open for another 10 years as they now need to paint all the new steel red with a special paint, like the Forth bridge which actually was the first.  But the good news is that planning on the fourth bridge has started as they don't think the 3rd bridge will last. So the Forth bridge will eventually be renamed the Fourth bridge and will have outlasted the other 3 combined by over 150 years!

Gotta love the public sector....

@Phil S1 I have the same in mine and agree it really lifts the interior. Works particularly well with the grey exterior. Also, barge boards. Love them! Pics like this make me glad I fitted them to mine recently. Beautiful car chap.

That's very nice @Phil S1 but you should consider getting the centre console retrimmed! I upgraded my black interior in my 2010 NA to an enhanced Sports Premium using venom red and alcantara. Allon White did an excellent job ;)

That looks really nice Andy, like that a lot.

Now all you need is a couple more seats :P

I do fancy my interior in a MSG Evora. I think the red and green just looks yum.

Though I do like very much the grey and red above.

Lol. 2 gents on this forum with impeccable taste. Who would have thought it? ;)

 

 

 

 

 

Bloody shame about the extra weight in those rear seats though.... lol.

I'll take them out and weigh them, my guess about 2kg if that. :hrhr:

When you are 6ft 5" and 19 stone, who's counting a couple of extra pounds! Mr Chapman should have implemented a weight limit for drivers too :blush:

Bloody glad he didn't @Big Ed as he would not let a fat b'stard like me in his cars.

That's the reason I have +0. The extra weight of the seats and three passengers - jeez, my car would bog down with weight ;)

MSG with red would've been my absolute favourite combination but I'm not sure one was ever spec'd like that in Sports Racers?

That's a shame. I know there were a couple of MSG with Paprika S!'s, but as you say, have not seen an SR in MSG and Venom.  Hmmm.....  As I've showed above though it can be done :)

Yes, cracking work Allon White have done there with your interior retrim, especially the centre console.

Lotus made a grand total of 5 Sports Racers in Motorsport Green for the UK! I've seen one other in addition to mine that also had the black interior. Maybe one of the other 3 went with Venom Red!

Sounds like that combo could be very much like the proverbial unicorn then, it took me virtually a year to find this one, I couldn't have held out any longer........ waits for an ad to appear in the classifieds...For Sale - MSG unicorn with venom red leather saddle! :)

Welcome back home Colin, Nice colour combo.  Always better in the flesh than on photos for some reason.  Remember to pop over to the LEGS section (Jockenese) in the Regional part and say hello.  May see you out at one of our meets?  Do you wish added to our PM list so you hear about everything on in Scotland?

Cheers,
