Hi, I'm in the middle of a nut and bolt restoration. Almost there....... the following list will help me get to almost almost almost there:

- S2 window glass (with the two holes for the finger pull), it's my understanding 1 hole = S1, 2 holes = S2
- Window locks L.H. & R.H. + the plastic pull dowel
- Boot hardware for the boot floor (looks like a metal tear drop + catch which bolts onto the body)
- Engine breather tube, the one that goes down and bolts onto the gearbox

If you have these or any of these please ping me over PM. Thanks in advance.

I think the engine breather tube that bolts to the transmission was early Elan S1 only. My S1 had this but my S2 did not.
