Hi all
New member and after some help.
Just finished restoring my s3 turbo esprit and bought a elan +2 in a box of bits ??? seemed like a good idea at the time.
The help I am after is there anyone local with a elan +2 I could photograph so I can work out where all the bits of my jigsaw puzzle go
Cheers

Sounds like a fun predicament to be in :fab

Good luck with it. I am not sure if I have seen any/ many elan+2 around here... although I have had a fancy for one.. well that after an Elan DHC.... :?

Oh and welcome to the forum.

Orson Weels is my mum's cousin on there, he has a +2 and his wife an Elan Sprint. They've done an extensive refurb of the plus two, the car that got me into Lotus in the first place
