I really don't mean to be nasty here, but I really really think you should be thinking of reverting the body back to its original shape. I saw this car for <sale in Sweden last year, the condition looked great, but there was no way i could live with those side skirts....... :shock:

There are enough standard Plus 2s around not to worry about the odd modified one.
Put a smile on my face.
Nice one Jaakko

I really like it! Don't know why exactly, but it looks good to me - esp the back! Pob something to do with my young age, but nice one!
Let me know if you're ever selling it!

Jaakko,

Looks fine to me (and I'm not a young age). If you dropped the back end a tad it would look much better.

By the way I like the vents in the bonnet. If I have much more heating problems, I may be fitting them myself! Especially if I do what I have always threatened to do - drive down to Madrid in Spain.

Nice one.

Hamish.

PS Agree with Cliveboy. There are enough standard ones around.

... Hi Jaakko ,
Your car look great to me if you are happy with , but if some of us seems shocked with the mod's of your car ...
Just , add a BIG (the biggest)wing , put it down and more , a set of LARGE (very) Revolution wheels , and ... get the sponsor (all if it's possible !)of your local's , this will make a wonderfull Modsport from the seventies !...
Ask the olders , sure they have some nice pictures of that they use to do with Elan's ! ...
Christian.
