Congrats! Keep us posted and photo's always welcome. See remarks on trailer on your other thread. Not sure where to get one your side of the pond though. Is the body attached to the frame?

Hi Nick

Well done; I'll be keen to see another +2 up the road. :D

Have a measure of my car tonight. I have pulled it out of the garage and given it a wash so your wife will not batter you when your one arrives. :lol:

That will be a very early car with Alfa rear lights; a very rare car.

For paint colours look at this link and the years the colours wee available http://www.lotus-europa.com/colors.html
All early cars were single colour.
