Holy Flappin' bonnets Batman !

Recommended Posts

Just driving out of London on the M4, being very good, Cruise Control set to 70 (Honest!)

And then the front bonnet panel suddenly starts lifting away, followed swiftly by the access panel popping open.

Slowed down and crept to Heston services where I discovered this (Sorry, poor phone pictures)




I cannot see any mechanical fixing for the front flap, apart from bonding material (Make that non-bonding material)




A roll of insulating tape is my Get Home fix




Does anyone know if that is the case?  (Glue only) and what should I use to reseal this?

I guess its going to one more of those "never seen that before" issues that make life with a Lotus so rich.  :help:

Those pieces are supposed to be bonded for life! 

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

Captain,  Lotus Airways. We fly lower!

I'd be telling them they can come and pick it up as well on a transporter.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.
