Hi everyone,

Thrilled to join this forum. I am Martijn from the Netherlands, car enthusiast and am in the process of buying a lhd Lotus Elan S4, bought new by my uncle. He resprayed it from orange to blue when he got it in the day. My intention is to get it back to orange (and then over white) and in good order overall. Hope to learn from your experience.

Best Regards,

Martijn

Welcome Martijn
Orange over white is a great combination,

Hi Clive,

I can't wait to get started. I hope and suspect that the car is in not too bad condition being never driven in the rain and garage kept. Fingers crossed...

Fantastic colour for the Élan!
