Restoring my Elite 503

Recommended Posts

I know as I am just fitting the interior that's all recovered. Looks great even embroidered the front head rests.

I'll look into becoming a member.

The colour is really unique; not seen it on an Eclat before. Makes me wonder how a darker gunmetal might look (similar to an R32 GT-R).

With the Elite all finished I have moved onto a new project, attached a picture but its not a lotus but I did think about putting a Lotus engine in it.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is it?  And where's the rest of it?
