I've seen 7 copies (Robin Hoods or something similar) where the Body panels have been made from Mirror finished Sheet but that just looks wrong 1962 Lotus Seven Restoration - Page 2 Icon_eek

I agree, if it's too shiny it looks fake, that's my excuse for not putting another 50 hours into polishing anyway 1962 Lotus Seven Restoration - Page 2 Icon_rolleyes
