I like what you've done with the fibreglassing. My undertray parts need some attention, maybe I could send them over?

There's something about fiberglassing I don't like, can't quite put my finger on it! I seem to have been in there for weeks. One more undersheild could send me over the edge!

Dry sump owners

anyone with the single support louvre know how the underside Aluminium support is attached? Is it held at both ends buy brackets or bonded to the louvres?IMG_1488.JPG.308622ecd08df2286d6ca01afea08576.JPGIMG_1483.JPG.7dff23dc5f1376c502c18f7002690894.JPGIMG_1485.JPG.a9b09d8c44cf1a447ed21b44999c17da.JPG

Hi Stephen, Please can you help with some black area pics. Here's my car before-can't remember if we have already done this? Cheers.IMG_3741.thumb.PNG.c27a49d0162cb7e46f2e337ad0d85558.PNGIMG_3742.thumb.PNG.d18db5e181ddd721535a78b3ccc97289.PNG

Also the upper door shut would be useful.

Or are the  Turbo black areas the same as the S1?IMG_3762.thumb.PNG.63741b38013df8e2445e9353b05feebc.PNGIMG_3763.thumb.PNG.94c7f8bc5c6ca8ac55db7b7fb8a42dc3.PNG

My 82’ (September) was just like your original photos and that is how we’ve kept  it. Seems Lotus dispensed with the thin black line in the door shuts some time during 82. 

I wonder if the Dezer car had them? As these cars were resprayed a number of times they may not have bothered. We know this from the fact that the FYEO white car does not have the black strip behind the the top of the rear bumper.

Here's another bombshell there is bumper trim on the FYEO car! Front and rear!IMG_3764.thumb.PNG.b41eb66ae931de772e67a791e9d57832.PNG

I think I will copy the black on the Bond car, which is as per the Turbo.

Makes spraying easier!

MPW never had this trim?

I think that has been added later possibly when the HC bonnet was fitted.  

I don't believe the actual car used in the film NCL had that trim either from memory when I inspected it along side MPW.
