  5. YerπŸ‘ ...always carry a Shed load of spares with me but think it’s getting a little out of hand!😁
  6. Thanks Chris πŸ‘ As you can see me Elan was literally dwarfed by the latest suv mini ! A great selection of cars, from a Maclaren Senna to a Morris minor rag top! Good way to spend New Year’s Day.πŸ‘

    The Elan bible

    Hi fellow early Elan owners, Just in case you didn’t know a 2nd edition of Brian Bucklands book on rebuilding the Elan S1-S4 has been published which includes an updated engine chapter. http://theelanman.com/the_book.html Available as a soft back now and later as a ring binder edition. If you have the 1st edition a supplement will also be forthcoming. Late crimbo presentπŸ‘ .
  9. Hi David, Glad you can now make it, count us in for a Saturday meet up..... http://caffeineandmachine.com/ possible venue? Merry Christmas. Andy.
  10. Hi Adrian, I’m thinking along similar lines, join you on the Saturday morning for the day, evening meal, stay the night, do breakfast and probably the midday meal.( which I take is pay on the day) Seems straight forward enough to book. p.s if your looking for a coffe stop I can recommend here...http://www.cotswoldfoodstore.com/ plenty of parking, good coffee & cake. Merry Christmas all! Andy.

    This years winter jobs..... The carburettors on the S2 Elan are being refurbished by Alan at Carbcare..http://www.carb-care.co.uk/ and the wheels on me S3 are with Paul at Redditch Shotblasting....https://www.redditchshotblasting.co.uk/ having a nice coat of silver powder coat applied, with a set of new spinners should look the business.πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ Anybody else got jobs to do on their cars?

    Wanted..Elan air-box/trunking jubilee clip

    Hi Carl, Thanks for your reply. I’ve come across that one before, along with a few others, Kelvedon Lotus also do one, but I’m after a 100% original. Has to have the correct screw, domed headed, round and slotted.....Oh, and patina! The search goes on...... p.s...When it comes to Elans I’ve learnt NEVER throw anything away even if it’s broken! πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
  15. Hi folks, Long shot but someone may have what I’m after in an odds and ends box in the garage... Im after an original large diameter 4’’+ ( 100mm+) double wire jubilee clip that fastens the air filter trunking to the air box on an early Elan. Could get a repro but would like an original. Thanks in advance. Andy.

    Hi, New Member from Northamptonshire

    Hello and welcome to the LDC Mark. You’ve certainly joined the right club if you want to get the most out of your Elise....driving it!πŸ‘ Id defo recommend Ed’s Hilltop brekky for a meet and greet and I guarantee you’d enjoy the Pembrokeshire trip. Enjoy your car,! Andy.
  18. Hi Norbert, Sorry for the late reply but I missed your post first time round. Might be worth trying Boss Motors as they remanufacture Body panels,bumpers etc for Lotuses. No website ( tel 01953 887471) they advertise in Absolute Lotus magazine. Also worth a try..... http://www.lotusbits.com/ ask for Mike Taylor. Good luck. Andy.
  19. Hi folks, Anybody fancy getting their car out this Sunday, 2nd, and heading down the Cotswolds for breakfast? Meet up here from 10ock....... http://www.cotswoldfoodstore.com/ I’m going so hope to see somebody there! Andy.
