Chassis nut and bolt kit

PostPost by: jono » Wed Jan 27, 2021 8:38 pm

Is it still possible to purchase a complete chassis bolt kit for a Plus 2?

I recall with my last build it came with a full kit all separately bagged and labelled - everything including suspension bolts, nuts, washers, the rear wishbones bolts with the short heads, etc. but I can't recall from where it originated.

£29 + vat & postage from Spyder http://www.spydercars.co.uk/lotus-elan- ... -spindles/

Or £49 if you need the drill bits, taps and instructions for changing a chassis
Kindest regards

I found an old kit that I must have bought in the 1980s from Classicar Automotive that I used for my S4 rebuild. Not sure they still do them Jon, but this lot is what you need....

Sue Miller has a chassis bolt kit availble for £15.50 + vat & postage, includes an instruction sheet.

This is just Bolts/Washers between the body & the chassis, no suspension fasteners included.
