Lotus Elan

Collection

PostPost by: Elan Peter » Wed Oct 30, 2019 5:20 pm

Forums such as this have been opened many times before, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to open one more as I wish for the forum goers to see my lovely lotus collection.

The Elan s2/26R-eplica is now finished, the paint shop will do everything else, the plus 2 is going to be finished off while the elan is away...
Should be fun to work on another one.
Best regards, P

That's Felix the workshop cat, he's always working with me and my dad. I think he knows everything about how not to restore them now :lol:

Everyone needs a cat. They are great.
We put baskets in the garage to temp them in.

We have three but Mrs. Veg insists that they stay upstairs in the house and away from the garage.
