"The seats are re-manufactured in Lancashire not abroad "
Are the seats new or re-manufactured? Is that a typo? :)

Thanks Steve and everyone else who has been very complimentary about the 'new' , 'new replica' Elan seats.
All I need to do now is sell some to re-coup costs.

Started as a hobby as my seats were rotten , springs broke etc , couldn't find good second hand replacements so decided to make my own which turned out to be a very expensive and time consuming exercise.

Regards , Greg.

Not sure I do Phil, my Sparto replica lenses are remanufactured as an exact copy of the originals. They are not reconditioned or rebuilt but they are also new.

New replicas might be a way to describe them
