Lotus Elan

My Lotus Elan +2 S

PostPost by: TomTom » Tue Feb 02, 2010 10:17 am

Hi,

my name is Thomas from germany and a new forum-member. I bought my Elan + 2 S in 2005 in London. The car was built 1971 and was 2005 in a little good status. After in the meantime 5 years I brought the car into a very good status. The car makes fun and only the MOT makes every two years problems because of the handbrake. After an adjustment the handbrake goes exactly once. :D

Sorry- my english is a little bit rusty :-)

Here a picture of my Lotus.

Regards

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

The car looks amazing in the sunshine! That colour and the chrome just pop. It's lovely.

Nice colour..I sometimes wish I was brave enough to have gone for that one......have you looked at Spyder's handbrake kit?
I am now an ex-Elan owner but will drop by from time to time with some suitably inappropriate comments.

Hi Thomas

Your car does look really nice.

I've never had any problems with the standard hand brake set up on my car. It does need to be carefully set up in the first place and it is important to keep within the maximum .003" (0.076mm) clearance between disc and pad, but otherwise it's fine. Of course all pins, pivots and adjusters etc must be free and in good condition or it will never be possible to set it up correctly

Regards
Andy
