David - pleased to meet.

Lots of bits from Tony Thompson, all the suspension, manifold & exhaust system, radiator, LSD & solid drive shafts (Tony built the LSD ....... beyond me!) 26R seat. Most of the other parts came from Paul Matty, hard top, oil cooler, solid rack mounts, LSD brace, & plenty of other small items over the years. Engine was built by John Smurthwaite. Front brakes are +2. Replacement Lotus chassis came from Miles Wilkins ...... close on 25 years ago! Other restoration parts from Pat Thomas & Spyder ........ all the usual suspects ........ & ebay / auto jumbles of course!

Mostly put together by myself, but the suspension was set up by a local professional race preparation business.

Good luck with finding an S1/2, don't appear for sale too often, though there is an S2 on ebay right now.

Dave M,

You have one very carefully put together 'sorted' little motor.

Thanks for reminding me of all the specialist input, bookmarked !
