Yes

A lot of yes,s here
Yes it's a1970s Lotus
Yes it's Red
Yes it's flat as
Yes it's been machined in the past and some of the edges have gone through
Need some ideas to bring some shine to this old Lotus
There's minimal paint left to work with so I'm thinking no machining just by hand
There is some calcium spotting evident also
All suggestions please re product

If it's original single stage paint and looks flat and probably oxidised then Meguairs #7 show glaze is the product you need this is one of two pure polishes that they make and are very good at reviving old single stage paint am sure there is a video and article that Mike Phillips has done on numerous old American classic cars with #7 show glaze and the outcome was transforming
