Pre purchase inspection

PostPost by: Lotus Man » Tue Oct 23, 2018 6:29 am

Hi Everyone
I’m new to the forum. Looking to purchase my first elan (1970 doc) and I’m looking for a specialist to carry out a pre-purchase inspection in the Cornwall area

Anyone recommendations would be most welcome

Thanks in advance

Peter

I'm sure Phil at the SW Lotus Centre in Lifton would do a report for you.

I can give advice - I'm in S Devon, I'm a Chartered Engineer who has had six Elans, two +2s and two Europas. PM me if you like. Alternatively come to the local Club Lotus meeting, I normally attend, next meet is Thursday 1st, I should be there assuming I'm back from business meetings in Yorkshire and possibly London next week. There are normally a couple of us with Elans.

Apart from my current Elan all the others were gone before I got married! Current S4 is a long term rebuild, hopefully get it finished when I retire!
