Lotus Elise(s)

My first post here 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

S2 Elise type 72





Elise S1 with sport 135 conversion





Elise S1 111S





Elise S1 Millenium Edition




Elise S1 type 49





Elise S1





Elise S1






Elise S1 Probably the earliest and cleanest i've come across






I got bored at this point as i bet most of you have 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.

Cracking write up! I have a VX220, the Elise's close cousin. Hope to be doing a full detail and write up on it soon

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!
