I'm Colin from Kent, about to go and collect a +2 bodyshell tomorrow and so begins the start of yet another automotive project.
I've wanted a tax exempt GRP bodied car for a while and always had a soft spot for the Elan so when the body came up on an Ebay barn finds site I popped a bid in and ended up winning. Sight unseen of course
I'm in no hurry to get it together as I have a fairly long project queue already including a couple of old Land Rovers and recently a rotten 1975 VW T2 Bay van which will be restored for my other half. At least the welder will have a day off with the Elan.
I'm learning from scratch with the Elan so I'll try not to be too much of a pest with dumb questions and I will promise to search through old posts.
Unlikely to go with the Lotus Twin Cam, at the moment a Zetec seems favourite as I won't be keeping this one slavishly original. I won't muck it up for the future so anything that is done will be undo-able I hope.
Tomorrow is the first day of proper ownership
