  5. Just had a look at the elite today and was thinking about doing some of the bits to it myself and see how far I get. The first thing was the roof, it needs new vinyl, can I do this myself? if so where do I get the vinyl from? and would it be worth priming and painting the roof first? also, would it need an adhesive on the roof before the vinyl? im guessing the chrome trim on the roof comes off to release the bits of vinyl that are left on there?

  9. Hi all, Im new to this forum as Ive just been given a lotus elite that needs restoring. Unfortunately I really don't have the time to do it up so Im thinking about selling it and I was wondering if theres any demand for a lotus elite project? its mainly complete, just needs a new interior and a few small bits. can anyone give me advise on selling it and how much theyre worth? If need be I can post more details about it when I get home if that helps. It does come with a rolling chassis/body of another lotus (esprit I think) Cheers, Steve
