Is use of a quality "scratch remover" product out of the question? I've used one on one of my cars with good results, though it didn't do as well on one of the other cars. Different "plexiglass" used by different manufacturers possibly? Dunno for sure.

I lied.....    

It was my first time back in the saddle last night since the surgery and the first time at speed in over a year... The changed gear ratios are spot on and the car is just fuckin mental fast...   

Happens to the best of us, Frank.

I forgot how to sync my Gopro to the iPhone  so I'll have to try and figure it out again but in the mean time It was great in the twisties and seems to attract new friends when ever it's parked...

Really was time to see you back on the road. Sure these guys  :police: :police:  :police:  have missed you. 

Every time the car is in the shop you seem t have new ieas to spend more R$D.

It appears that the aft "clamshell" is secured by 4 latches. Yes, no? The ones forward of the rear wheel arches seem to latch to the body panel itself. What do the ones above the top NACA ducts latch to?

On inspection of the photos, i think I can see two pins sticking up which would fit through where the top latches are...so I assume they secure that way?

Yup two pins on the leading edge, two side latches and two pins under the wing.

It would be bad to have things come lose at speed.  :turned:

 

It seems the paparazzi like the car..

  • 3 weeks later...

So after a very successful tuning session out in the boonies the gearbox decides to only shift into 3rd or 4th after the one and only stop on the highway to hell......  :turned: 
But the road gods couldn't be any kinder then to have me stop 25 yards across from an ACE Hardware store...... Too fuckin cool.

By the time we finished a bottle of water the the new nut was on the linkage and we were on our way..... I knew being nice would pay off one day.

I took the RS 211 down to Cars and Coffee this weekend and had a great time talkin to so many car nuts about the Lotus.

I even got an invite to show the car off at the Pasadena Art Center College of Design this coming October.....
