In 2018, an F-150 backed into me and caused cosmetic damage to the windshield and clam. It was fully repaired and certified by the insurance company. While it was in pieces, I made some further front end upgrades (new all aluminum radiator and condenser, relocated and replaced resistor pack, incorporated led running lights and turn signals into the headlights).
This Lotus has been an absolute joy to drive. I have never tracked or auto crossed it (much to my sadness). It could use some minor cosmetic work, some of the clearcoat on the sides of the rear wing is a little rough and the front splitter is chipped from years of NJ roads, and one of the rims has a small chip in the finish. None of this will stop people from coming up and asking you all sorts of questions about it, which never gets boring!
I am only putting it up for sale because I don’t drive it as much as I used to (having a new home and a second daughter will do that). I still really love the car and will continue to tinker with it until someone decides to relieve me of it. I’ve never sold a car before so anything I missed or did not address, please ask and I will do my best to answer.
