Pleased you’re happy. Maybe you could post up a photo in your garage assuming that’s where they’re going.

Mine arrived today, absolutely fantastic

So good I scanned and copied them so that other people could download and print themselves

Here’s the link ........

Seriously, I have seen originals and these are better, made from a vinyl material, totally bombproof and a great addition to the mancave, photos to follow when I have put them in clip frames.
Kindest regards

I found these perfect clip frames today at my local Wilko store (UK)

Just £10 each, they fit the posters really well.

An enquirer on these posters pointed out something I’d not thought of, if you happen to have a slightly damp garage these posters will not be affected having been printed on polypropylene sheet. Paper posters could deteriorate over time curl at the edges or get foxing etc.

Your orders welcomed.

I think I just saw an original Elan poster (the same as the one for the Elan you have had printed) advertised on eBay for £90. These new ones you have had made will be a much better quality than the original paper type.

Makes your ones a bit of a bargain I reckon

How many do you have? And do you have both?

I might be interested for £100 the pair

Had a look and it is £95 plus £5 postage so actually £100.

£25 is a bargain!

Hi Spyder Fan
I only have the Elan Sprint ones,
As I have a Sprint when I was offered some at the factory I just said 'some Sprint ones would be great' I think that was a big mistake! I should have asked for some +2 and Europa ones too.
I'm only selling to raise funds to get my Sprint engine rebuilt.
Thanks

Thanks Silverlink,
No worries, I’m very pleased with the ones I have received from Steve. Great price and bombproof for hanging on a garage wall.
Kindest regards

Mine just arrived in the colonies (East Coast USA):
SteveLoader_Posters.jpg and


The quality is superb & these won't rip or crease like the originals. Mailing was fairly quick, 12 days door to door.

Just need to build a garage to put the posters up now. :oops:

Many thanks Steve, great job & much appreciated!

Thanks Phil,

12 days is impressive when Royal Mail quote up to 42 days!


Gives you 30 days to build yourself a garage!

Hope you still have a couple left Steve, I would like one of each please........ Don't have a +2 anymore but they look best as a pair IMHO.

Should look very nice on my garage wall......

Could you PM me payment details please.....?

Many thanks

All the best

Hi Steve

Posters turned up last week when I was on holiday....very nice and very pleased

Will get them on the wall in the garage soon and post a couple of pics when I do.

I did suggest to my wife about putting them up in our living room but she didn't seem keen for some strange reason?

All the best

You’ll have to bin her off Adam that’s just not on! :lol: :lol:

When I showed my missus the thread about the automatic Plus 2 and suggested it could be my way back into Elan ownership the air didn’t exactly turn blue but it was a definite no no! Women eh?
