Hello All, I'm Bill Mack. I'm working on an S2 Elan #4038. Its about 80 percent finished. So I'm using the Other 80% of the time it takes for the last 20% of the job.Missing parts are a big problem for me. My car has no interior except a dash and one seat frame. Also missing sundry small parts. Looking to pry some bits loose from you hoarders... Thanks for all you guys do.

Bill welcome to the friendly forum.

I can certainly relate to your 80/20, with 80% of the time to complete the last 20%. Now where have I seen those stats before. :roll:

As others have said, post your list of requirements.
Also can you post some photos of your car, so we can see the before, progress and after. :D

Wishing you the best in your efforts.

Hi, from another Bill. I'm in Windsor, CT and have an S2 SE that's been on jack stands for about 30 years. I'm building a 26R street car at the moment with an expected finish date 1-2 years out.

I have a number of parts that may be of interest and know a number of locals (NE USA) that may be of help in your parts search.

Feel free to PM me.
