Great looking car Mike! Love the revolution wheels matching the bumper colors. I remember your car at Watkins Glen LOG33. (I'm in the background of your photo in the blue jacket with white stripes on the sleeves).

Given the number of spectacular 'variations of 'blue' shown on this thread, I suggest the next time there is a large gathering of Lotus cars the organisers might consider grouping them by colour!

The photo of the +2 shown as Indigo Blue is in fact Roman Purple. Just looks blue in the photo. The car belongs to me.

Thanks for all the pictures. The Trophy Blue looks great. I think I have settled on colours for my two projects. I will be painting another vehicle in my chosen colour to test it out. I will post some pictures when they are painted. Now all I need is some time to get the projects done...
