Stabilised my front bumper (fender) with P40 stuffed in the cracks. It had been held together with tape

P40 patched bumper 196_8585.JPG and
The middle of the bumper needs something similar but BIGGER after I dropped the engine on it in 2017

Took a drive through Arkansas, including the Talihena Scenic Byway, the Pig Trail up and back, and up and down Mt. Magazine. A buddy came along in his Viper - we had no trouble staying in front of him. :D

Steve, you've given me a flood of memories! Back when I lived in the Dallas metro I used to chase the curves on those roads on my motorbike whenever I could. The Talimena Scenic Drive area was especially familiar as I had a friend I knew from a BMW motorcycle forum who lived at the bottom of the hill in Big Cedar where the north/south highway crossed the drive. He hosted gatherings for BMW-riders twice a year at his place. Great times that I will always remember fondly!

Not a lot of hair left and what I have is pretty scruffy anyway thanks to lockdown barber... Me :lol:
It's currently sunny and about 11c so almost tropical, so think the green baseball cap will suffice.. Will let you know if I regret that decision.

Besides, we're tough oooop North :lol:

Turns out I live in a micro climate.. Anywhere within 3 miles seems to be peeing down, while we have a bit of drizzly moor grime making the local lanes a bit entertaining :lol:
Going to need a wash now to get rid of some organic matter.

Baseball cap sufficed...( I cheat though as have a wind deflector :lol: )

Enjoy them when you can folks, even if just for a couple of hours...
We could be plugging them in future ..

Boxes of Lotus bits are one of the best things in life :D - certainly not sad except for people who dont understand what a Lotus is really all about and are missing out on the joy of driving a Lotus :lol:
