Now preparing to get the JPS to my home and finding out what should be done first.
The JPS had the license plate SKL 656M but was never registered in the Netherlands. Fortunately the bodyshell is ok, I haven’t got the original engine with it but an engine rebuild by VEGANTUNE, it has no LOTUS engine number on the block. I wasn’t able to track down this company, perhaps it isn’t existing anymore. It came with a galvanised chassis but it has some signs of rust here and there. I am planning to take the body of to make a thorough assessment on the chassis status.
It came with a T9 gearbox but it has to be converted to fit the JPS, tried to get in contact with Alan Voigt to get a DIY set to do the conversion myself. Until now without succes. A pity he doesn’t communicate by mail.
I recently bought a set of beige seats that came from a MGT, I need to see whether the carpet set is complete.
The old dashboard has seen better days, I am planning to make a new one myself.
I found out that EBAY looks to be a place to find and get parts, until now I have been buying at SJ sportscars, I am very satisfied with the deliveries until now.
Being new on the +2 I would appreciate some advise were to look at/for?
