I was build my first Lotus 78 on 1983, and very poor painted all over. I brought my second Lotus 78 with all pieces and bodywork on 1990's. I give up my second Lotus 78 on 1997, as I build it with conversion accessories

I sprayed bodywork -chassis, wings, and covered with Humbrol gloss black, and I painted front cowling covered with hand paint and flat and polished.

I made my second Lotus 78 on 1997

I made conversion details for Left side braided pipe tube with white metal bolts from accessories, and I made two wiring connection with battery inside RH side.

I made cable with adjustable control in Left hand side cockpit

I made added wiring connections on chassis to engine

I'm not remember, where is I put it?

I made flash metal foil with clear red for warning light with steering wheel head.
