I’m after few pics of lotus yellow type26 with hardtop please.
First idea was to paint it grey as bumpers but perhaps there’s is other nice options ? (Yellow? Black? Other?)
Thanks for your help !

Bonjour Huggy

I have compiled a list of GTS cars and all 5 yellow cars have yellow roofs.

I can send this to you (if you contact me with your e-mail) by PM (to heavy for the site). If this will help.

Greg, that Primrose yellow looks really nice. Is that its original colour? Primrose was a rare factory colour carried over from the Elites onto a few cars in the early years but it really suits the car (IMNSHO) !
