Axminster Specialist Panels are particularly experienced in the range of lotus panels from the early cars such as the seven (7) series one (1), two (2) and three (3), through to the eleven (11) and the current Caterham models.

 A recently finished Lotus Seven series 1 with a complete new body and bonnet duct as per the original car.

A small number of the Lotus and Caterham Sevens (in addition to the series 1) produced by the factory had aluminium wings and nosecones instead of fibreglass panels.  Examples that I have produced are in the picture below.  The chassis in the background is a Maserati 4CS.

Please note; I am a one man business and I am concentrating on the fuel tanks, seats etc. Reluctantly, I will not be taking any more orders for bodywork on the 7s and 11s. 


Race style seats.

This is an authentic copy of the aluminium seats as used in Lotus 11s, 15s and early 7s. It is also suitable for a variety of other race and sports cars.

It’s actually very comfortable with the minimum of padding (not supplied) to the base, and is very light. A very rapid race Caterham has one fitted. It is 390mm wide at the base. I can make these to different widths. Please contact with details.

These seats are not to be confused with more basic examples sold elsewhere. These have been fitted to various cars including ACs, Alfa Romeos, TRs and others.

Experience has taught us that angle of the back panel varies from car to car. We do make these seats in a number of seat back angles.

Please contact for details.



These are normally made with cut outs to suit harnesses.

Price; £545 (no vat to pay).
