It finally arrived at the workshop today!  Well, approx. 70 yards uphill of the workshop as the huge transporter couldn't get around the corner.  Unfortunately it's at that point that I discovered it

Door handle and rear view mirror, I am here if you need help 

@LJR that is so going to be worth the effort, top tip “GIN”

All part of the Lotus experience!  That's why I enjoy them.

That's not gonna happen this year.  And the last time it did, video hadn't been invented.

So I'm left with the fascinating conundrum of a very shiny engine, with loads of its ancillary bits in boxes, that's apparently been rebuilt but never turned over.  So many ways to approach this...

Look on the positive side - at least it’s almost in one piece. The S4s didn’t have engine, box, fuels tanks or oil coolers in place

Only here once

That would be easier.  This one could lull you into a false sense of security.  Think I'll send in a camera first.

Then tell him it's ferked and shift it to Dan with a huge drink.  😁

All will be revealed in 2019.

Meanwhile, I can confirm that the mysterious box on the roof stereo is...

A cheap air freshener!

Just back from holiday and got an email from Andy Graham with the Certificate of Provenance for the car. It is the 2nd of 4 UK Monaco White cars with Brown full leather and roof stereo (FYEO spec) across all model years. 6 RHD cars were white with brown leather (half or full). It is the 28th UK Turbo and the 7th non Essex production car produced. Now I just need to finally see it in the flesh
