After far too long sitting in the garage the Elan is slowly starting to receive the attention it deserves.

I am far from being a big guy but I'd forgotten just how small these cars are.

Very Nice :wink:

Is that the no water wash and wax? How do you find it?

Chris,
Used my new snowfoam lance on the daily drive for the first time yesterday and while i was in the mood decided the Elan deserved a wash - its been a long time coming.
Foam, gentle rinse, wash and leather .... then the Aquavac to remove the foamy rinse water that had collected in the nose cone DOH !!! :lol:

Cool pictures!

Think how impressive they would look if the foam was a dirty Brown colour :lol:

Would be quite a problem selling the stuff if it was though!
