Lotus Elan+2 headlining kit

PostPost by: memnon » Sun Feb 14, 2021 2:19 pm

I have a headlining for an early (4 rod) Elan +2

perforated cream vinyl, brand new and only every trial fitted .... to the point where we discovered I need a 5 rod late type.


£90 posted in the UK extra elsewhere in the world.

It will be on eBay on the 21st Feb 2021 if no takers here.

I honestly have no idea about the pattern, I've attached a photo of the pattern though. Adding 2 photos here seems trickier than necessary!

Thanks for that, however it's the earlier pattern I need with the 'star' motifs.

Cheers all the same.

Hi Jon,

A lodestar replica material is available here:

I can get you a headliner made up from it if that's of interest?

I got a 4-rod headlining in Lodestar from Kelvedon a couple of years ago, no issues with fit or installation. Highly recommended. As I recall they don't keep them in stock but order them on demand from a supplier that makes them.
