Charlie! where are you driving from, we are coming from North of Aberdeen so anywhere South of the border is a short trip. Get it down there man, people want to see the engineering on both cars, well I do anyway.

I didn't plan to make the brandshatch show and as it's so close to the RR gathering it's unlikely that I'll be there. However JPW you are welcome to stop off halfway on your epic journey from Scotland to the south at my place for a cuppa and see the panther for real if you want.

Thanks Charlie, ping me back your details and we can leave a bit earlier to have a look at this cracking piece of engineering. On another note, your car it was being discussed by several local lotus officiandos at our Scottish show over both Saturday and Sunday and all but one were positive.

Got its photoshoot with RetroCars magazine next week, think I'll give it a mop before hand, make it it really pop, redo the brushed aluminium bright work and detail the f*#k out of the interior.  After all, one is representing Lotus, can't be seen in public all shoody now can we! Oh and if all goes well I'll be at silverstone this sunday on the FastCar stand in the retro modified section.

I buffed and waxed my paintwork last night and blimey she's come up well shiny! I'd herd about carnauba wax and that this is the best stuff and all that, so I bought a bottle, well I can say it's bloody great stuff. Supwr easy to apply and easy to buff off and instant shine. Difficult to see in the photo but you could eat your dinner of off it.

So a double wax would come up with an even deeper shine? Oh and I forgot to mention, I redid the interior also with leather treatment. I've never seen the leather cream get absorbed so quickly, I put a massive blob on a cloth, applied with one swipe and the food was gone! Have to say though it's certainly improved the leather, definitely softer and a nice scent coming through as you open the door. Gunna redo the brushed aluminium this evening.
