  1. exactly what I thought On most Elite you see the edges a bit loose because they were not capable of fitting perfectly What a beauty this car is already
  2. well done, brilliant, thanks for posting! And congrats for your new job, what an achievment
  3. can't make it to Oulton Park but please send me some details about the 'Evo Triangle' as we'll do the Snowdonia, thanks Many, many thanks for all your ideas. I guess 3 weeks is too short I've sold my Elite 3 weeks ago, a very sad day, but sometimes you have to let go That guy came along, looked at the cracked paint, I've tried to talk him out buying the car pointing out all the bits that are broken or don't work. He still wanted to buy. I thought ok the test drive will definitely will put him off. Au contraire, he came back after 30 minutes and was very excited... He even di
  4. plus, if you install an open air intake the engine might get hot air instead of cold air which does not help. I thought you had the orginial box installed, sorry...
  5. Interesting idea, I', sure this will get a lot of attention!
  6. again - your attention to details is just amazing
  7. funny thing is that on the 5th pix you can see the center console falling apart already
  8. supercool why the trailer? donhasi - nice one! I see in your profile vx220 instead of the Elan - switched cars?

  12. please post photos 504 means auto box and A/C?
  13. outch ok thanks for sharing I'll keep mine until I find a perfect one The red auto is just too much work - again...
  14. the LED lights are terrible... yes, I think 4-6k Euro would be the maximum Let's wait and see
  15. @dunc maybe a rear-ended car, that's why the rear was poorly repainted and a S2 rear bumper...?
  16. ok after a test drive I can say the car is not too bad, exept: rear wiper is missing right headlight would not open chrom trims around the windows are painted mat black (not the rear hatch) front axle makes some funny noises electric side mirror adjustments do not work has been partly repainted in the rear: there's some red color on the exhaust and around the 'automatic' letters on the back, so the paint was most probably not done very good some interior parts come loose (above the head on the drivers side) car was sitting around for years, bu
  17. I'm particularly interested in: side mirrors left/right (eliectrical, how do the original ones look like?) where the chrome trims around the screen and side windows black? how were the headlights operated? Electrical I guess? What's the motor? Rear wiper: was it attached to the top of the screen, or have there been models where it was attached at the bottom end? any other significant differences? Thanks a lot
  18. Dear all I have found a for sale very nice 2.2 Elite with auto gearbox. Is the swap for a manual gear box plug-and-play or rather plug-and-pray? Which manual would fit - I guess the 1975 manual will not fit to the newer cars? Thanks for any advice
  19. Looks superb - inspiration for me to improve my Elite
  20. looks totally different in my '75 - mine is not stock, but diy, will post a photo as soon as I'm back home On that image, it looks much nicer!
