Exige S1 Restoration (images changed).

Recommended Posts

Cleaned the car up after paint this morning. I wasn't a massive fan of the orange originally but that's all changed now, the freshly painted sills are stunning. The quality of the job is excellent.

Some bits & bobs back from the anaodiser. The coolant pipers are just polished. The footrest and speed sensor mounts were fine bead blasted and coloured silver. But the big news is the dash I suppose, hard anodised black.  If there is any sort of glare or harsh reflection I can easily repaint it but then again I may actually get it trimmed along with the binnacel.

Shot blast and powder coated the passenger seat rail, a few bits off the drivers side and the grills off the front clam. Wasn't possible to do the runners so they where keyed, primed and wet sprayed, three coats of each. I know Mark had a few issues getting the drivers side to come forward from full back so I had a good look found nothing, cleaned and regressed them.
 
 A couple of other bits shot blast also and the clutch release and head light adjust plate ready fro Zinc coat.

:) More top products from our Dave at Seriously Lotus but I may pop the original steering wheel back on at some point.

Does that bring the steer wheel closer to the driver?

That is a very nice bit of kit. Was considering changing mine for one of those. It's quick release but has a tiny bit of play in it.

 

Can I ask where your anodiser is.

 

Cheers
