Lotus Elan

Sill kickplates

Hi, if you're restoring an S1 Elan you may need a pair of alloy sill kick plates, I had a small batch made when I needed them for my S1 restoration, they are £100 for a pair.

Do they have the correct pattern on them?

I knew someone was going to ask that!!
The very first Bourne cars up to unit number 3250 had plain aluminium plates, I would imagine, knowing Lotus, that a good few cars even after that number were fitted with them to use up left over stock! I have a Lotus bodied S1 unit 3679 and it has the polka dot ones, as does all the S2s. The last 3 S1 restorations that i did had lower unit numbers than the 3250 change point so the plates I had made were plain ones, if we had a source for the Polka dot patterned material we could make the later ones also?
