Edit, forgot. Every post is a picture in this thread! Think it is meant to have Lotus only pictures.

Nice, 26R angles too. Who does those?

And as for a picture, HTP / passport approved today

P.s. I wasn’t trying to incite another riot on here, the debate about stressing ( through cornering forces or otherwise ) old pliable metal joints can stay there.

Some time between mid 1977 and 1980.

Written off (insurance purposes but easily repairable) by an elderly gentleman in a Granada.
Sold on to a specialist who did re-build the car. Currently registered and MOTd somewhere in the east of England( Ipswich area ? ). I've been trying to contact the present owner, so far without success. If you bump into him at the filling station, please let him know. :)
