I have some interest in your Elan Plus 2 project. Can you tell me more about the new, galvanized "genuine" Lotus chassis. Did you purchase this and, if so, where did it come from? Do you have any sort of listing of missing items? As far as engine reassembly is concerned, it it your understanding that all parts necessary, are included? Are there any items, other than those specifically listed, that you know require refurbishment or replacement?

I am in Vancouver, and would look to arrange shipping out here.
