Hi Everyone,

Well, slowly building on bits for the car.

Steering column (Few bits to add too still)
Body outer vents
Hand brake
Hand brake cable
Hand brake actuating rods
Steering column (Few bits to add still)
2 x Chrome door frames (Coming soon)
2 x Window motors (Coming soon)
4 speed Lotus Elan Gearbox (Coming soon)
Started restoring and will be painting up new etc.

Along long way to go yet obviously, but hey a very good start!

Hi

Thats certainly a start. I guess by doing it this way you can more easily deal with and restore (where necessary) each part as it comes in. I just have seemingly endless boxes of parts.

You have the body and chassis already yes?

All the best

Berni
Zetec+ 2 under const, also 130S. And another 130S for complete restoration. Previously Racing green +2s with green tints. Yellow +2 and a couple of others, all missed. Great to be back 04/11/2021 although its all starting to get a bit out of control.
