That's rather serious looking. I love that color, and the fact that you stuffed it all in a book frame. Nice job.

Thanks! Though truth be told, I wouldn't do it in a book frame if I could do it over again.

Gorgeous car! Love that color.
Also Love that big ol' Ford sittin' in the little Lotus frame. :D
I'm thinking you're gonna have more "hole" than you have "hood". AND I LIKE IT! :twisted:
:cheers:

Great looking car!
What seats are those, and were did you get the fenders?
Thanks

Those are the probax Lotus Elise seats. They fit perfectly in a book frame, if your book frame is perfect. My trans tunnel is offset ever so slightly, and so they scrub going in. Old question, but figured the updated answer might help someone someday.

Thanks for the pictures. This is a mighty looking seven. Congratulation for this remarkable piece of work. I too like the green. How did you go about painting? :cheers:

The paint lacks any reasonable luster, especially given that I took the panels to a local paint shop to have them sprayed. I wasn't really equipped in the shop to give it the paint job I wanted, but unfortunately apparently the shop I took it to wasn't either :BH:

Has the paint been clear coated or color sanded? That makes a difference in luster. Russ
