Hi John.

Definitely fuel injection.

Starts first time, no fuss. Not the cheapest thing especially with the  Emerald ECU.

The fuel pump has been relocated to the boot just under the tank, which is now the bigger Zetec size.

Hi

Yes, it's original colour scheme. One of the approximate 115 JPS built. They were not numbered like the later Esprit's.

As the cars were manufactured in odd batch sizes🤔. So working back the chassis numbers mine would be in the mid 80s of this amount

That's the main reason I wanted a Lotus Certificate for my JPS. Now I know she's number 57. 🙂 
Seeing yours makes me eager to start work on her and get her back into shape!

The gold roof is definitely an eyecatcher and most people can't resist to touch it as it doesn't look smooth (but is).

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Hi 

Great news that you have a JPS, and that it will be saved. I think that the Elan +2 is beautiful to drive, its such a shame it is not as well regarded as the 2 seater

Clever selfie in the mirror 🤣

The trimming also look pretty damned good, it wouldn't have looked that good when it left the factory 😀 

Cheers,
