Hi - I owned TTY95H when the photos were taken - I bought it from Ireland and it has now gone to a new owner in Northern Ireland.

I will send you a message and happy to share more photos and details by email.

it is a beautiful color indeed, suiting these cars and era very well, I strongly considered it then opted for a period correct for my '68 street S4se, but it still lingers in my mind...

That is a lovely looking car in a lovely colour but what do you all think of the orange indicator covers? I think they stand out like a sore thumb, as they do on pale coloured Elans. Clear lenses and orange LEDs is the way I have gone as I really did not like the orange look..............

I didn't know it was a +2 colour but I had decided to paint mine the 'Healey 3000' colour and that's spot on.
Many thanks

The Plus 2 on page one in (I believe?) glacier blue, with a white roof and wheels is the prettiest Elan I’ve ever seen!

Wow!
Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?

As part of a long process of rebuilding my +2s I have had it painted in Glacier Blue with Cirrus White Roof.

The paint shop have done an amazing job.

I would certainly recommend the paint shop. Paintbarn near Southampton.

I hope to finish the reassembly before the summer.
