Can someone please advise the correct position of the nose badge on a '67 Elan S3. Mine never had one so need some guidance.
Thanks

is it worth getting out a mirror , a bright light and a sharp pointy object?
I mean look at the reverse of your front panel and you'll probably notice a couple of bobbles of filler where it has been filled in the past !.
If you then judiciously pick off/ out the filler, hey presto ! you'll have the original holes again!
If you try and drill new holes you might run into the edges of the originals making the resulting holes rather bigger than plannned ..... :roll:

Try looking in the grille opening at the under side. You may be able to see where the holes were filled.
