And if someone knows where to get the Lotus logo stickers (metallised, silver logo on black) from I would be grateful - mine are worse for wear !

I'm not sure what the logo looks like on the seat belts but if it is the same as on the coat hooks on an Elan +2. About 1/2" dia, silver on black and metalic then you can buy them from Christopher Neil's. I bought a couple from them when I was at Donnington.

I photographed the best of my two black and silver seatbelt stickers and cleaned it up in photoshop, the intent being to somehow get a reproduction made. It's a four-sided sticker (not quite square) with the Lotus logo and the word "LIFT" on it. I'm not sure how to post it though. The original belts were made by Kangol.

Well, the model of seatbelts depends on the model of Elan you have.
On mine (similar to yours, it is a 66 S3 FHC), I have Irvin Air Chute belts.
But other models have other belts.
I send you an email with some pictures.

Cheers

Olivier.

No, I don't send you an email because I do not see how to add pictures to the email of the forums.
If you are interested by my pictures, comunicate me an email address through the forum.
