Doesn’t this make you feel great during all this chaos!
A bit of old fashioned banter and realizing there are fantastic people keeping a LOTUS alive all over the place.
Makes me feel silly being upset my cars been with the body shop for 11 weeks and I have been waiting for a rear light to arrive from Holland since March( arrived today and wasn’t great)
I am over 3 years into a non professional restoration and read comments about CN (ragtop I think looks good) conversion projects that upset but do not deter.
Everyone is doing, thinking and helping with nervous buddies, thanks to you all. We are not all fully flushed but have a similar vision.

If above fails try Micky Flynn at Boss Motors, Snetterton. He did a geat job grafting a front end onto our +2 after an engine fire. It was a 2nd hand front I chopped off an old body but he also has moulds for most of the Elan range.
