A couple of pics for Brendan



Cheers Rob, that’s fantastic

Still trying to decide what to do at the rear. I like the silver ‘L O T U S’ lettering across the rear, and I don’t want to spoil it. I’m thinking of leaving a gap in the stripes so they would end neatly at the boundaru of the horozontal indentation across the rear.

I replaced the cheap looking silver letters with chromed steel ones. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CHROME-SPELL-WHAT-YOU-LIKE-LETTER-BADGES-v8-rs-SELF-AD_W0QQitemZ8002191981QQcategoryZ72211QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
Looked much better and similar to the old Elans. You could even spell what you like EXIGE, LOTUS, CHAV

Interesting, but I’m happy with the letters as they are, and I don’t want to stick the letters on top of the stripes because they won’t stand out enough.

Are you sure they won’t stand out?


I suppose it works pretty well, but I’m still not convinced

The replacement sticker is “only” �8 from Lotus and you’ll only need to use the O and the U.

Just leave the stickers on underneath the stripes and it helps you to match up where to put the new ones.

The point is, silver on white doesn’t show up very well

Perhaps black letters would work?

I thought about that, but black lettering against the red won’t look as good as the silver.

Tsk. There’s no pleasing some people

I know. I think I’m just a miserable bugger

I taken the lettering of the back of my car and I think it looks better without. If you do replace the letters have a look without before you put them back on.
