Making great progress Shaun.
Good to see you sorted the window seals.

Not to long now before the S4 project. :D

Sorry, I don't get it . . . why would you ever trade that Plus 2 for an Elan? :shock: :mrgreen:

Yes, I get it . . . sort of. Thanks for the very sincere reply to my teasing question. Some of us love the original, some of us love the Plus 2. Obviously there are more Elan fans (and cars) than Plus 2s.

I will say, in the Plus 2's defense, that as we all get older, I believe the Plus 2 becomes more and more appealing and desirable . . . :wink:

Regards to you, Shaun, and I admire your work immensely , . .

Thanks for the comments Randy hopefully the time and effort will reflect in the price when it's time to sell

It's beautiful, and if I lived in that side of the world, I'd be very interested!
