    2007 Lotus Exige S

    2007 Lotus Exige S
    6,000 miles
    Aubergine Purple Metallic
    1.8 liter supercharged 4 cylinder
    220HP/165TQ
    Curb weight 2022lbs
    6 speed manual, track machine!



    This is a client of mine who is a Lotus freak! This is his second purple Exige! Car sees track duty so it has a few defects/flaws. A lot of rubber transfer onto the body panels, marring, swirls, some very heavy scratches that I informed him will not be able to be removed, and some water spotting.

    Game plan: correction and a coating.



    The details:

    Waterless wash with McKee’s37 N914.
    Clayed with medium nano sponge, N914 as lube.
    Rubber and tar removed with McKee’s37 tar remover.
    Flex 3401.
    Rupes iBrid.
    Misc. foam pads.
    DeFelsko PTG.
    Scangrip lighting.
    Beta test compound.
    Misc. MF towels.
    Adam’s glass cleaner.
    Adam’s APC.
    Adam’s Ceramic coating.
    Pinnacle exhaust cleaner and brightener.
    Metro vacuum.
    Adam’s VRT tire dressing.
    McKee’s37 fast interior.

    Thanks for looking!






























    Getting there!


    Trim 50/50 during coating:

    Too cool Scott!

    I bet that little rocket is a bunch of fun on the track, with that “go cart” like handling.

    Great results too I must say. Sweet colour, & I bet it looks a whole lot better in real life too. Nice work Scott, I bet the owner was stoked .... will be faster now.

    Wow, that thing is crazy cool!

    Love all the exotic stuff you work on, Scott.

    Great job as always, Jerky! Lol

    Re: 2007 Lotus Exige S

    Worked at a Lotus dealership in the D before I moved to Chicagoland and never saw one in that color. I see CF panels, isn't the car light enough, LOL. These cars are track tools but really move on the highway!

    Thanks everyone! It was really a fun project to work on! I enjoyed it! Factory CF front end, rear fenders, hatch and rear end. $9K+ in CF body panels! Color is pretty special.
