I've seen pictures of Lotus's with the back panel of the car around the taillights either painted black or wrapped matte black, like the look of the 360 modena.. anyone have their elise/exige like this? Is there a thread about this already? I want to see some pictures of lotus's that have had this done but I'm not sure what terminology to search for exactly.. I'm considering having that area wrapped matte black when I purchase my Exige..

I believe people call it a "bandit mask". I wasn't looking for it, but mine came that way. Arctic silver with matte black tail, fuel filler cap, and wheels.

I believe this was bring your silver sports car to the gym day. Lol
And a red one that I had stumbled across. ImageUploadedByAutoguide1347259075.136153.jpg
I bought my car from a seller in L.A.
I know that Mulholland Motorsports had done the paintwork. I wasn't sure I'd like it, but I think it gives a mean look to the car. One comment I tend to hear is that it looks like BatMan should be driving it. Not sure if that would be a good/bad thing for you. I think vinyl would be a good start. If you didn't care for it, just peel it off.
Good luck.

Yes sir, it's mine. The previous owner was Pax. I believe he now owns a P-car and an Exige. BTW, have I mentioned enough times how much I love the key you designed? Thing looks awesome. Hope school is going well for you.

Retsillacm, I believe you may find some additional pics on the "Booty thread"
