Love the wheels and the yellow colour, car looks great!
Are they standard tyres and did you use any spacers on the wheels? The offsets look pretty much correct.
Edit, of course they are knock on, so spacers unlikely!

Correct, no spacers. The tyres are the correct 165/80 (although aodern design), and as near as I can tell the offset is the same as the original. But the centre and spokes being mostly closer to the plane of the outer rim than most of the centres of the originao.steel wheels gives the illusion of a more 'muscular' look.

Had only taken one bite of lunch when a knock on the door announced not a parcel delivery but a man with a Marcos 1800! He's a taxi driver who had carried me when a bus failed to turn up. He's been promising to bring it round for years and is only in the next village. Having seen a Marcos at the Earls Court exhibition in 1965, aged 13, and set his heart on one he bought his in 1976 and It turned out to be the 1965 show car! The Marcos works refurbished it very nicely some years ago (for half the price that St Wilkins had asked) and it is immaculate. It was fairly lively but was not as comfortable as an Elan and crashed the exhaust frequently (Marcos weld skids onto the silencer to protect it)! As a visual impact it rates 11 and the 3 litre version must be phenomenal!

Loaded the boot with the dismantled and wrapped Engine Stand I'd borrowed from Baggy2 and drove to his country cottage some 20 miles away
Thanks Meg for returning the engine stand in such pristine condition - I'm sure its better than when I lent it to you.
Glad your return journey was better than out-going . Your S1.5 looked and sounded great as you drove off.
