Any Lotus enthusiasts planing on visiting the Deezer Collection in Miami? If so can you please take lots of pictures of the For Your Eyes Only Copper Fire Turbo Esprit. Especially the ski racks and post them in here. Thanks.

Hi Fabian,

I was at a company called boss motors in Norfolk last week and he made the fibreglass ski racks for a guys in Norfolk for a FYEO car. @Buddsy said he has seen the car on Facebook if you wanted to see how they turned out. Not seen them and not sure how accurate they are but I am sure he could make you some. He makes Elan and europa shells from factory moulds and has done for years.

Fabian, yes speak to Mick at Boss motors, he has the original moulds from Lotus, believe it or not they are one mould, the tops are fine but the bottom ones you need to ask him to add another 4 inches of fiberglass to make the curve, the finish isn't brilliant but the dimensions are correct out of the movie, I paid £130 for the set of 4 an absolute bargain

Hi Matt, that's fantastic! Have you got any pictures of the ones you bought that you could post or pm me please?  I have been studying these and it seems to me the ski racks appear different on pictures of the same car. Maybe they broke and were remade? Thanks, excellent news.
