Hi guys ,

This Lotus was being prepped for the Lotus Concours I had five days to prep this car plus juggling my other job which was a Porsche 997 Carrera 4S Basalt Black which will be featured on another Thread .

For the past five days I painstakingly corrected the paint on this super hard Lotus GT300 what made matters worse is that I had to pay attention not to overdo the paint correction since it was covered in Sponsors Sign writing and logo's so it was like treading on a minefield !

As you will see from the following photos the condition this car was in before paint correction !

( The Norfolk Yellow Esprit was also part of the Concours event but didn't get prepped for Concours and still won :confused:

So both cars that my client (Andrei)took with him  there today won the concours. The GT300 won the 2011 Race/Track car section and the Lotus Esprit S4s is now the 2007 State Concours winner, 2009 National Concours winner and now, innadvertedly, 2011 State Concours winner.

And the S4s did that by only losing 2.5points - 0.5 for originality and 2 points for the engine bay cleanliness - as I said, the car was not prepared as it was not supposed to compete. It got perfect scores for exterior, interior, seats, instruments, boot, undercarriage, wheels.

Good job as always Mario  :thumbsup:

Does it make it more difficult with the stickers on the car?

Great work, even the tail lights came up awesome... amazing to see how tiny the engine is without all the covers in there.

I saw the racer advertised for sale in an OS magazine. Might have been in Octane?
