Lotus Elan

New +2 owner

PostPost by: pptom » Tue Jul 03, 2018 9:35 pm

Hello all, brought a +2 project a couple of months ago here in the UK.
It's mostly there, but not been on the road since 1993.
Body is in primer with the windows out and doors off. Plan is to get the body ship shape and paint it myself before tackling a full engine rebuild and chassis component freshen up. The car had a new galvanised chassis in 1993 and it's in great condition but the running gear looks very tired.
89k miles and the clocks and 2 registered previous keepers
I'm in Northampton and plan to do everything myself bar some engine machining, have a history of building bikes, and of course working on cars, but this will be my first full rebuild.
I'm a bit light on pictures at the moment as I've got limited Internet, being away for a few days.
Tom
