Hi Steve, well done, enjoyed it very much and not seen it before. Also the year I bought my (still current) Elan. :D :D :D Cheers Lyn...

typical Lotus
Loved the quick shot of them filing off the outside of the brake caliper - it must have been hiting the inside of the wheel rim ....... where have I seen that before???

This has got me thinking -we ought to have our own Film and Video Archive. It's all very well posting links to this stuff but if the host site shuts down we've lost it possibly forever. I'm don't know to achieve this but some of the more techie guys will know. We need to be preserving this stuff for the future.
