Doesn't look too bad, if the mechanicals are in good order.

Best of luck with the restoration!


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

Progress so far....

Engine removed, dismantled, checked over, cleaned, sprayed in areas and then reassembled. Just waiting on a couple of gaskets to be ordered. Pictures of before and after.
