Lotus installed the alarm on August 31st
It arrived in port on Sept 18th
It arrived at HRM on Oct. 1st
I got it yesterday.

It was Mark's second LSS car.

There is a sheet in the papers I got with the car.

Its a hand written form filled out and stamped by Lotus - the 8/31 date is on it.

The rest I got from Mark.

Hey Brian...Mark mentioned to me that you had asked about the paint film wrapover into the door thing. We looked at that at Orchard Beach. Did you wind up doing that?

It won't do much for cone scuffs though...I think it's better to tape as scuffs are much harder to remove from film than from paint. At first, for myself (and for Pat) it was quite easy to catch a cone on the rear of the sills in front of the rear wheels. It appears that the central driving position combined with the large hips on the car contribute to this until you get used to it.

Argh! You mean I'm going to have to tape the car up like Jenn for AX.

Yeah, you will. At least at first if you're like me....the last autocross I was in a didn't hit any cones, the one before I think I had one clean run. Ya gotta get used to having a wide ***.

Somehow the film holds onto the cone marks much more tenaciously than the paint. A little scuff, no problem. Hit a lot of cones or co-drive, big time clean up. Gojo with pumice gets them right off the film but that is aggressive stuff I used as a last resort. It came out fine though and the film is shiny and clear again.

Don't know when they reached port, but I was emailed last Thursday asking if I wanted Starshield and then told Friday that the car was in the US.
