The car now drives fantastically and indeed stops on demand. It feels so much more rigid and responsive as well - I have had the old girl for two years now and I just thought that she had rubbish brakes as any 35 Y/O car would. How wrong was I!!! The work told took about 40 hrs and I was charged £2k with an MOT thrown in. While I just love the sound of air being sucked through teeth and the "looks expensive mate" exclamation of Car Mechanics - I have the pleasure of reporting that the place I took it was great - I did not feel like I had been ripped off. The firm is ProTech - headed up by a chap called Glen. They are based in wallingford in Oxfordshire. Although they specialise in Triumph they are also Classic Sports cars generalists - I recommend them.
Thanks to Martin from Essex as well who worked on my car a few years ago - your advice was invaluable.
So what is going to need replacing next?

Glad to hear the car is back together,sounds like they did a top job,and kept to their estimate(rare these days!)
Hopefully nothing will need changing for a while,but isn't that the fun bit?
You can't second-guess a Lotus,just enjoy driving it as often as possible!
