I've made a video showing the details of my Elan S2 chassis before it disappears under the body. It's on youtube here:

Thanks much for your videos. They provide a thorough overview of some basic structure that will be good to know before I dive into my own 65 restoration.

Nicely done, but lets hope the DVLA don't get to see it as they have been safely convinced that the metal bits under the body of an Elan are a subframe not a chassis.

How nice to see a completely standard Elan rebuild. Enjoy driving it too, Paul!
