    I've used the Chipsaway bloke in Mansfield, and his work is very good.

    Found this place recently.

    Mint car enhancements are legendary!
    I havent got their number to hand but they're in yellow pages.

    They're based in Hucknall but will do mobile, they will do stuff like stone chips but will also do full wheel refurbs, leather repair, dash repair, valeting, audio.

    If you call them tell them Steve from CEL recommended you

    or Keif.

    I've know Laine and the boys for years (over 10), they fitted the alarms in 5 of my cars (including the Lotus Carlton) never crossed my mind to see them about alloy wheel refurbs. I'll be popping in before work tomorrow.

    Oh, there number is 0115 968 1117

    Sounds a good job that, Keif did they supply you with the alarm or did you have to get it, how much did they charge?

    Mint Enhancements will supply the Alarm.

    A fully fitted Cat 1 Toad alarm should be somewhere about £250 (depending on how long you've known them )

    Give them a bell, tell them Keif "The Vauxhall man" with the Lotus Carlton sent you.....or Steve from CEL.

    A couple of pics for you.

    (Note the non-standard tailpipes on the LC - Very rare pic in my ownership)



    When i went there that morning, the Monaro VXR was parking up on the main road, saw my Lotus and ran into a bollard.

    He's a mate of Laines and came round to Mint, walked in an told Laine "There's a Lotus Carlton outside" Laine was like a big kid as he was working on it that day.

    The Monaro VXR has now gone, he owns a VXR8 now......which i followed to Hucknall on Tuesday.

    It shows you how good and trustworthy Mint are, i trusted them with the LC for a day. Knowing it wouldn't go anywhere without me about.
