  1. For the moment this car is expensive, and a lot of work... About trim parts, aluminium and chromes, damaged, can they be found or it already an impossible mission ? For the chassis geometry how did you manage to make it right ?
  2. Hi everyone, I currently look for an Elite LDH as i now have 2 kids. i already went to see one. The car was stored for a long time in humidity condition for long enough to damage the wood inside. A professional did the minimum to put it back on the road and pass the CT (french Mot), so, to have break, not to leaky carbs, new front shocks, bearing, fuel tank and ss exhaust .. Around 4K of new parts. Some aluminium and chromes are damaged. (Can they be found ?). Engine seems rather ok but leaks oil from head, i guess it is cover seals and cam. Interior is new, all black. Plastic. An horrible 80 small glass roof. Ventilation makes a terrible noise, and does not work. rear wiper was suppressed. Rev counter is silent. Car drive quite well, but smells fuel and burnt oil a lot, and... does not go straight on bumps likely because of 4° Kinpin angle difference between R&L on the front. Other angles are more symmetrical - +0,35° ( maximum 0,7° on front camber, 0,5 rear camber). Chassis is beginning to rust but it seem for the moment it is not too late, from what i could see. How fast should i run away or discuss the price more ?
  3. Thank You Fabian, Steve and Cor, Currently all post 1975 RHD cars are significantly cheaper in LHD. Corona may change the situation. Technically I guess it is a little more work than i could initially think. The forum search engine did not find this that i got this morning with Google.
  4. Hi everyone, I may go directly to the dog house with such title as naïvely i think it may be like for an Elise. A long but not that difficult or unrealistic Job. Can it be done ? What is the necessary part list, usual labor time, and among this list, are some parts difficult to find ? Thank you by advance. for your answers.
