Lotus Elan

Chapman struts required!

Poor Julian is only trying to put his Elan back together and then comes the attack of the Anoraks. Being an Anorak myself I will add that the Workshop Manuals for both the S2 Elite and the S1 and S2 Elan describe the rear suspension as "Chapman Strut type systems". As has been mentioned earlier both Kelsport and TTR have everything available to build up completely new units.

My logic to correct is what is written becomes the truth...

Sue Millar had a couple of pairs of struts on her stand at Castle Combe yesterday...maybe worth giving her a call.
