Pete, don't forget it was my wife's 'thinking' about a nickname - she was on the lines of Lola Lotus, roll off the tongue a bit ???!!
I'm pretty sure I'll be going to Paul Mason for the respray - after a long chat with him I got the confidence he knows what he's doing - he's been a Lotus guy for 30 plus years.
I know some out there will question spending quite a lot on a paintjob, but my mother passed away a couple of weeks ago, so my inheritance will be used in honour of her.
When the shell is out of the way I'll have space to re-assemble a rolling chassis - I just hope I remember how it all goes back together !!! I think YouTube will get a hammering ???!

Cheers,
brad.

Sorry to hear about your mum.
Just done the probate for mine. It certainly helps with resprays.
I suggest getting the workshop manual and Brian Bucklands book.
I bought a S4 SE in 1986 which I still have but have always, and still do, desire a Sprint.
