Start with the loTus

I finally had the chance to look closely at the box of parts the previous owner of my Lotus Europa gave me. A new set of Lotus letters for the rear deck was in the box, what a treat. After applying these I won’t be asked everywhere I stop what type of car I own!

Thanks to a fellow down in Florida who is restoring a Lotus Europa S2 I had the measurements to apply these letters to the rear deck lid. It certainly was intimidating but is one of those cases where you measure 3 times before drilling any holes. It’s all very finicky as there’s little room for error.

Once finished the Lotus lettering looks really great. I did manage to chip the paint in a few areas (these lightweight fiberglass bodies are easy to damage!) and had to elongate a few holes but touching things up shouldn’t be a problem. Overall a great addition to my S2.
