That's amazing! Are you going to be able to look at anything in the engine compartment with a light on it? It's clear you don't have enough to do! Making an engine compartment look good is one thing but making it look as good as the exterior of the car is quite another!

Thanks BDA , wait till you see the dimpled stainless backgrounds in place😀

The engine cover is all most done also . I tried using a blending in the clear but every time I buffed it out I saw the blend line . One other door showed a small hairline crack that I saw at certain angles . That to is near done.

Finally finished the engine cover. Heavy pollen slowed the repainted panel.
Back to good as new 😀

More black mirrors! You're not going to want to drive it for fear of getting a scratch or scuff on that beautiful paint!

Like I said I only build them , my girls rip them apart😏. This went with her when she got married.
All free. I refinished the factory paint finish.

BDA, but would really drive me crazy is when others hang on the doors to get in and out or even trying to sit on it....
Rock chips , dead animals ok but stupidity..🤬
Scraped up this mirror for some  needed repairs. Easier now than after hanging.

Free.

They are just Dymo labels.  Useful to have for labelling relays, fuses, etc.  You might want to pick up a printer.

If not, I'd cheerfully send you a set if you pm me your mailing address.

Thanks JB , my wife has a printer that will do that also , it also cuts out letters and images. I forgot all about it . All owners should post , “no lean” in that location, and put in the lotus manual. :lotus:
