Plus 2 - Shared parts !!

PostPost by: Bozzie » Thu Apr 26, 2018 7:54 pm

Having now got my +2, and when I'm not tinkering in the garage I'm invariably browsing the internet and forums, at least that's what my wife says. Anyway I though I would like to compile a list of +2 shared parts. I know the windscreen is supposed to be from a Consul Capri and the front bumper from an Anglia. What else can I add to my growing list?

Also Golden Gate Lotus Club, though I haven't used this in awhile and don't know how up to date it is.

I drove one in the 1960's I was working for a Morris MG dealer and we took a Gordon Keeble in trade, you could spin the wheels in any gear as I remember,
