Hi,

I'm in the process of restoring at least two +2s from a total (so far) of three cars. One of the eventual completed cars is a convertible that was shown in Robinshaw's book.

Any interest?

Cheers,
dak

hi
Just an update on the book.
Like my other Lotus books it will be a hard back case bound with dust jacket. Printed on A4 size 175gsm art paper, with colour and black & white photos and illustrations.

At time of posting it comprises 174 pages all press ready!

I am finding it difficult to bring sense to the topic of "Modern 5 speed gearboxes for the Plus 2"

Hi Kevin,

Had my Plus 2 for over 20 years and spent 8 years restoring it. juts rebuilt the engine for the second time (Over jetted Carbs). Loads of history and photographs and from my point of view my pride and joy.

Will send you the full list of restoration and some photos soon if you are interested.
