Elan +2 Seat Runners

PostPost by: how_lotus » Wed Jan 29, 2020 10:33 am

Hi all, does anybody have a half decent seat runner for a plus two that they are willing to sell? Half way through my restoration and should have brought this up earlier. Both mine have the lower bits that bolt to the floor rusted through. I have found an earlier frame that will do but need another.

thanks
Howard

Hi there,

I'm about 15 minutes from Chester, just over the welsh border

I fabricated some, went to a overhead garage door supplier. Found the track. Cut, and welded on bolts.
£10, and 1 hr labour. New metal.

Find out where the limits are, and start from there

The +2s130 ones look very much like a TR4/5/6 seat runner to me:

Not sure about the +2/+2S seat runners thou.

+2 Seat runner on ebay, currently at £15. Looks a bit scruffy but sortable.
