Thanks for chiming in here 65 Ginetta who (I hope I do not embarrass him) has done one of the best Elan rebuilds I've seen; the quality of workmanship can be seen here on his flickr pages.


The 5" lights look great in the photos.

i don't really "dig" the drivers foot well that much AND i prefer my standard of building, but I worked for Sauber from 1980 until they got in to F1 - mybe some of you have seen the level you see on their Gr C cars!? sandy
............................... that 125 000$ sprint (currently on fleabay) is in my opinion much better and more professional
