    my new rosso corsa elise

    For those who remember, i had a chrome orange lotus elise 111R, even though i loved the car, i had a problem with the color, i hated it! and over here in lebanon orange has become a hated color since since a sick political party used orange as his color and a trademark.

    i tried to sell the car, and again... because of the color no one wanted to buy it.. so i sent it to our best carspray shop and painted it in .. ferrari's Rosso corsa...

    the car looks SICK! IMO... what you think?IMG_0253.JPG

    Looks stunning! Smiley Congrats! I see you have had the brake calipers painted aswell.

    Have you thought about a vinyl protection film to protect the new paint?

    Not sure what you meant by looking SICK..Smiley

    If you don't like the colour, at least now you'll be able to sell it...

    Personally I think it looks great.  Smiley

    It is very eye catching Smiley

     May I ask how much the overall cost of this paint job.  Was the car stripped completely.

    Re: my new rosso corsa elise

    That looks fabulous Dimitri! Luckily the Elise is an easy car to disemble!

    Re: my new rosso corsa elise

    Thanks all.. yes the elise is an easy car to disassemble, and the color is external only all the inside of the car is aluminum without paint.

    it costed me 3k $.  this kind of work is cheap in lebanon .

    I agree, the orange Lotus offer for their cars is ghastly!

    Re: my new rosso corsa elise

    wow - thats a piece of fun! The red makes it much better.

    Re: my new rosso corsa elise

    beautiful job. Did they strip the whole car to paint though? I love the color mate.
