Lotus Elan

Elan S3 toolkit

It's a tidy job at a reasonable price. The pockets are the wrong widths and the lining is not hessian. The overall dimensions aren't quite right either.
If you're not looking for the perfect example exactly as per original I'm sure it will work fine. However, if you are a perfectionist and a stickler for originality this simply won't do...

The same seller had this one listed complete with tools, but someone's snapped it up quickly, I found it earlier when searching 'Lotus', 'all categories', 'Newly listed'. I was more interested in the contents, as the adjustable is the same as the one that came with my car, so it could be original after all :D

Agreed, I'll stick with wrapping em up in my old towel rather than spend ?25 on that :lol:
May aswell just buy a cheapie tool roll akin to this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Am-Tech-N1400 ... SwPgxVQLVm until something better turns up

Oh well, thought I'd point it out. I don't have any of the original tools anyway. Anybody fancy an original Ferrari tool roll to put their tools in (same seller)?
