After many months/years not doing a lot other than removing parts to clean or throw away or even sell on I have now started to assemble the car again.
Keeping ALL the good bits Gav already fitted to the car, but also adding many many more parts.
The goal is to have a standard looking (Standard ish) car....
I have a FULL 260 cup Elise S3 front end, carbon roof and engine cover and i am trying to build a car that looks like the very latest cars but with a much nicer 2ZZ engine.
The car has a full 270 LMS engine conversion (in the car when collected from Gav) I have had a Kaaz close ratio gear kit fitted to the new gear box with LSD that was already in the car.
Will get some piccies up as the build progresses, its currently almost a bare rolling chassis with eng and box fitted.
The conversion from LHD to RHD is almost complete then i can install the NEW lightweight JSRacing wiring loom (Actually a new standard Exige loom with ALL non essential shite removed by John)
Swapping the Pilbeam pedal box from LH to Rh was fun....

I found a 'new' 250 cup front clam and some of the Elise 260 cup clam top vents as fitted by Lotus . Here they are during fitting!!!
I think they look brilliant. I told Gav he could have first refusal if i ever decide to sell....Not sure he will want it back as it will look totally different to the car i bought from him! (Also have cost a shit load more money)

That's awesome!! Has it said 'No. I am your father' With lots of heavy breathing and hand cutty off actions yet?
