Lotus Elise(s)
 
My first post here :wave: I'm not a detailer but i've been cleaning cars since i was about 14, my dad is a car dealer and now a Lotus specialist and fortunately or unfortunately he turns to me when they're in need of a clean. I've only really been doing it properly for around 6 months now but i've done around 20 cars in that time so thought i would share a few with you guys.

No before pictures just afters though i will start taking befores now, the cleaning may be quite amateurish, i'd be crucified if i told you my washing method :D

I got bored at this point as i bet most of you have :D i've done so many he does only really give me nice cars though, will keep updating this with new ones. BTW this isn't some marketing ploy as all of these cars have been sold bar 1. Obviously advice, comments and criticism welcome.

Nice collection of Elise(s). Not sure I could live with the stripped out interior, but I guess as a weekend toy they are great fun? Nice work too!

Elise S1 type 49 is an amazing looking car with the best paint job by far in my opinion. good work

Kenny6 16-07-2010 10:30 PM

I too as others have said want an Elise (realistic dream car and all that). Your work looks fantastic, they all look mint, nice work :thumb:

very nice cars, look good too!! But I reallyvwant to know your wash process now after you said you would be crucified!! LOL. I'm guessing it involves a strong soulution of TFT a big pressure washer and some express wax!! Am I close??
