  1. Well done Giorgio, Your car look magnificent, you are an inspiration to us All. It takes a lot of commitment to stick to such a long term project. Congratulations on your car so far
  2. Gday Rolls, I am at this stage myself, the correct fitting of the bonnet is very challenging. I have found that I was easily able to change the shape of the leading edge of the bonnet with a slight twist of the hinges. I fell that the final fit may be affected buy the bonnet seal especially the leading edge but also up the sides. Have you trial fitted the bonnet with the rubber seal yet.? The bonnet is very flexible with barely a finger touch. Your car has become a benchmark for me, and I must be commend for your persuit of excellence cheers, Allan

  6. Hello Andre, Your car looks absolutely stunning, you must be very pleased with the outcome. Could I ask if you had the corduroy replaced and if so, would you know where it came from. I have been restoring 076 for a few years now but haven’t solved the corduroy issue yet Cheers Allan

  8. You are very lucky to have your original gold material in such good condition, I contacted Steve earlier this year he indicated he might have the gold reproduced sometime in the future. I have searched for this material fo 5 years so far. Close up shot below. Cheers Allan 076
  9. Can't believe how long this is taking

  10. Hello Goirgio, I have just read through this thread and noticed you were deciding what to paint about a year ago. I am wondering if you have finished your paint work " satin black" and if you are happy with the result. I am restoring commemorative 076 and I have the same dilemma with which items should be satin. Best regards, Allan

  12. Thanks guys, I have purchased a used rack over eBay suit s1 - s2 and the seller agreed to ship, however when he went to post, he ran into difficulties because the rack contains oil and grease. Just looking for some one to dismantle , but clean and post as the seller is not able to do this. I am will to pay a fair price for someone to do this Lotus marques here is able to recondition racks or sell kits but does not have complete racks for sale.. My original rack is non genuine and has been butchered with extended tie rod ends. Once I have an original rack I can rebuild and reassemble nit here in Oz
  13. Hello,. I'm wondering if there is anyone in England willing to dismantle, clean, package & post a steering rack to Australia for my JPS restoration. Reassembly is not important, so long as I get all the parts. I am happy to pay for somebody to do this and to post the item. These items are very rare in Australia and I would appreciate any help that is offered. Best regards Allan
