Cam covers (what to do with extra ones)

PostPost by: abstamaria » Sat Feb 22, 2014 2:32 pm

I don't collect things, generally, but over the years picked up three twincam cam covers. Later, a son's friend in the U/S/, also an Elan enthusiast, sent me fourth one - a "Big Valve" model. I've hung these on a garage wall and think they look really good. My car friends who visit agree, but then they're car guys.

Thanks, Enfoken. They are really works of art.

Dang.............now it looks like I've stolen your idea. I'm going to do the same in the new garage. I'm diggin' on directional lights (art lights) for effect. Is that a 23 in the foreground?

Or paint a piece of race track roadway on the wall & hang the Cam Covers horizontally behind & beside one another to look like they are racing each other. :lol:

Of course, then someone could accuse you of being obsessive [not at all like your garage]. :shock:

Thanks, Rohan. But, to be honest, I photograph only the good bits and do a massive clean-up before.

Cam covers on the wall are a natural, Mike. I probably stole the idea from someone else. I also happen to have a set of cam covers for the Dino V6 motor. This has of course DOHC per bank, but the covers I think are not as visually interesting as those of the Lotus twincam. I hung the Dino covers up as well (I have no more cam covers and nothing else on the walls). My garage is otherwise quite bare.
