Hi everyone
New boy here, have just bought body/chassis type 45, can anyone help me with info of how to get a dating cert for when the build is complete? I have a 2l Zetec on throttle bodies and a type 9 box, any problems fitting?

Do you have a Registration Certificate? Without it, I think you may have problems.

There is a lot to fitting a Zetec engine and masses of info on this site.

Good luck

If you to the member Lotus Archives on here you can apply for a certificate of provenance from Lotus Cars. There is a small charge.

What history do you know regarding the remains that you’ve bought?
