Lotus Elan

A change of scene...

Good Evening Ladies and Gents!

Up until now, I was the proud owner of a Classic mini which I ran for a bit, then completely rebuilt and now use as my daily driver. But now I am the very proud owner of a mini and a +2 130/5 :D (glutton for punishment)

It hasn't been on the road since 1981! And sadly is in a bit of a state with no interior, dash, loom, engine or gearbox and the paintwork understandably worse for wear, but I fully intend to bring it back to it's former glory! Very excited to get started, and get another Lotus back on the open road!

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like a challenge to chase up all the bits that are missing but most are relatively easily available if somewhat expensive which is why I presume they were removed and sold in the first place!

Starting from where you are you have a lot of options on how you do the rebuild - from completely original to Spyder Zetec or something in between.
