  1. Can anyone tell me what part (plate, bracket, etc.) that secures the bottom of the radiator to the body please? The bottom holes are at an angle and do not match the body profile. Also the top twisted straps where do they attach to the body please? Cannot find a hole anywhere. Any pictures most welcomed?
  2. Oh yes. Thank you. Was on the site this afternoon looking as well. Thanks again.
  3. Does anyone know the reference number and/or a supplier of the bearing please?
  4. Thank you for your reply. I have now ordered a condenser. One question the R75 compressor appears to have multi groves and not the single or double vee grooves. How did you get around this please? I think I may order a Sanden SD5H14 compressor and design and make brackets to suit. Regards
  5. Hi, did the rover condenser work please? Geof
  6. Can I asked a massive favour please? Can someone post pictures of the boot area to include the layout of the battery, fuel pump & pipe work and where the negative cable fits to the chassis. Thank you in advance.
  7. Hi Roland I have sorted it out. Thicko here was going the wrong side of the diff. mounting. Regards

  9. Hi Roland Thank you for your help. I notice that your drive shafts are painted black. Is this how they left the factory please? Regards Geof
  10. Thank you very much. I think is is correct I do have a hole in the seven o'clock position for the t-piece.
  11. Does anyone have a picture of the brake layout at the rear next to the diff. please? I have a single flexible to the cylinders with one bleed nipple. I want to change it to two flexibles and two bleed nipples. I am not sure where the tee piece goes and the hard pipe layout. Thank you in advance
  12. My Elite S1 1978 was originally silver. A03. Would the bumpers in the same colour or black please? Thank you in advance for any replies.
  13. Hi, sorry if I appear to be hung-up about colours! My chassis is now black for the year (1978). I want to get it the build as close to as it left the factory. Does anyone know what the suspension and brake parts colour/finish was please? I was thinking: Front lower and upper wishbones and anti-roll bar: Black. Rear trailing arms and lower rod: Black. Rear brake drums and backing plate: Black All other parts such as front vertical link, front brake calipers, rear drive shafts and front and rear wheel mounting hubs: Gold coloured nickel plate. Anyone help please? Tha
  14. Thank you for this. I have been in touch with Lotus. There are two prices the basic one is £55 and a more comprehensive one at £82.50. Made payment on the phone and I have to send one external picture and one internal. This is hard for me as 100% stripped down. Thanks again. Will post some pics soon.
