I’m really pleased with how this turned out. Quick before and after pic, I’ve totally uprated the garage. Just in time as I think Paul Matty’s are just about finished with the spa treatment so I can get her back. I’m available for Union Jacks, just need a stick and a pencil.

well I wouldn't be doing my own flag the wrong way round now. Its very tricky to mark out though being asymmetrical.

Just excited to get her back now, new steering rack, UJ, anti roll etc, new back end of the exhaust, new brake discs and pads plus a bunch of tarting up, can't wait.

Looks terrific. I believe I can identify where the Lotus usually is parked.

Are you going to be doing anything with the floor? It looks to be positively screaming for a nice epoxy-paintjob.

I hope you’re not referring to the wet spot on the floor! That’s just from the hose. The Lotus goes right there in the corner.

Got her back from Paul Matty yesterday after quite a bit of TLC. Next up I’m going to rub and paint those rails along the sills with the fastener heads all along.
