It was subsequently repainted black with a gold hardtop and finally fluorescent green overall. Original engine, gearbox and diff. Chassis was replaced at some point. Between 1986 and 1990 the car underwent considerable restoration but owing to a personal bereavement all work was halted in 1990 when the car was approximately 60% complete with many new parts having been purchased directly from Lotus but unfitted. The vehicle was then stored in a heated dry industrial garage until its sale in 2016. Since buying the car it has been totally restored over 3 years. It went back on the road in October 2019.
