Thanks for all the compliments!

I'm not sure what kind of wheels those were on the car when I got. it. There were two horrid aluminum wheels and two beat up steel wheels. I will check to see if I still have them or if they went to the recycler.

The Elite in the background of the Before picture is from when Lotus of Greenville picked up the car originally. It was supposedly the first late Elite to be imported to the US. I don't think they still have it and I did not buy it.

[quote="zog"]To lotocone - Yes this was another full restoration. My 8th one.The cars I buy for my project usually do not have any directly reusable components. Everything has to come apart and be rebuilt or replaced.



Zog/Bob You really have my admiration with 8 thorough restorations completed. That's great. With that much experience, there must be a lot of the work that you can do by memory :D

I hope to get the body off my S4 for painting later this year.
