Flares, panasports, and hardtop test fit (not crazy about the flares, but tire fit isn't an issue)

Thanks Jim,

A 20 foot car that runs good. It's missing parts, but and I'm sure I'll find everything in time. It also came with the CV joint axles which aren't installed. New donuts were just put on before I bought it so I'll leave those on for awhile. I took it for a drive with the soft top on in a driving rain last weekend to test it's weatherability. The wipers worked, and it didn't leak (amazing) so that gave me a warm fuzzy feeling if I ever get stuck in the rain.

Very nice! The paint finish looks really good, and I love the hard-top look!! :)

How is it that you and I end up owning the RHD Elans on this side of the pond? :D

BTW That's a nice looking mirror on the NS door. What brand is it? I've been looking for a Raydyot, but they bring silly money these days.

Found raydots HERE for not to much money...

My one problem is that distance keeps me from my Elan. (36/5395)

Thanks Jens. Those may work. But you notice that they misspelled "Raydyot." Suggests to me that they are re-pops (no duh :D ).
