I had my car worked on there. I highly recommend them. Amazing work. The paint he uses looks better than the factory paint. Julio is really good at what he does. The fact he has an Exige is a bit of a bonus too. He really appreciates these cars. Check out some of his fiberglass work if you are there as well.

My car is there right now getting the front repainted and new Starshield-type products.

There are several Lotus cars there, one I saw getting new flared wheel wells in the rear.

Julio, the owner, is extremely nice and very knowledgable and owns a beautiful Black Exige from Lotus Beverly Hills.

Lotus Beverly Hills thinks he is great.

His assistants are also first-rate.

All Lotus cars are kept under Lotus car covers when not being worked on!

I'll post pictures when the job is done this week!

It is paint. It looks pretty sweet in person. Flat black stripes on black. He is really good at this stuff. I also agree everyone that works with him are also good. He has some other custom projects going on with other Lotus right now that will look great when it comes out.

I had the same new starshield stuff put on my car while there and it is a lot better than stock starshield.

I was tapped from behind while stopped in city street traffic. The car behind me was stopped too and then decided he needed to move forward. I really have no idea what he was thinking. Nothing serious, but it put enough cracks in the rear clam that I had the whole thing replaced.

Julio has my old rear clam sitting against the back wall. It is the white one along with all the other Lotus parts.

Those stripes look awesome! Would love to see a larger car pic?
Begs the question... How do you wax that without making it glossy?
Cheers,

They also some amazing stripes that look different than any I have ever seen.

Painted on and you can't feel them when you run your hand over them!

They are incredible!

They have a state of the art paint booth and are using water based paints like Lotus does.

Very slick/top custom capabilities.:D
