Happy ending to article titled "Lotus Photos You May Not Want To See"

Tonight I came across this article on a website called Colin chapman archive resource. See the link http://colinchapmanmuseum.org.uk/?page_id=1704

To my surprise it had two photos of my car on it, as well as the comments below.

Newsletter May 2013 ? Number 42 Colin Chapman Archive and Resource
Thanks to Andy Humphries for these rather sad photos of an Elan 2+2 he?s spotted whilst walking in the Emsworth/Westbourne area.

At about the same time as Mr Humphries had spotted the car, so had I, as I live a short distance away.

So I'm very happy to announce that two years later the car is back on the road and sailed though its MOT. Furthermore this week it had a respray and now resides a short distance away from Westbourne in Emsworth.

Attached are some photos from Sep 2013 when I bought the car as well as a some pictures taken yesterday in the paint shop.

I'll post another picture when I get the car back this week and I put the trim back onto the body.

Two years on and it's complete..
Here's the finished article.

Many thanks to Phil and the team at Lillywhites garage Emsworth for a superb respray.

I'm quite proud.
