Union Jack engine cover

Recommended Posts

Did I dream this or was there an official Union Jack engine cover design?

If so, is this still available or are there any other decent painted versions out there?

Saw a guy’s 430 Cup today and that painted cover looked so nice.

Lotus hasn't been a British owned company for a long time but that's not what this thread is about. 

Jim, I don't recall there being an official Union Jack engine cover but I'd imagine it'd be a very simple job for a car vinyl company to map something really nicely onto the cover and I can't imagine it would cost much. There are plenty of these kind of firms around now, or a PPF company would probably be able to help too.

I would have thought a Hydro-Dip would be the preferred method in this instance.

The key is to use a good quality material for the wrap. It will cost a bit more, but will cope with the heat no problem. A mate of mine use to do wrapping as part of his advertising company. He did the union jack on the roof of my Excel, very happy with that!

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

This is driving me mad, have tried Googling for the past hour but then it may not search forums or past cars that have sold.


Now I’m massively convinced I wasn’t dreaming it, I’m sure it was on an S3 engine I.e. the big square cover rather than the S2 cam covers, the photo was in a dealership forecourt and I’m sure it was painted and not a wrap. It looked much classier than this Vauxhall job, though not a bad effort if that’s been done at home tbf!


If I can’t find it, I might just go down the route of painting it yellow to match my callipers.
