Press Release

Postby Specky » Thu 25.09.2008, 20:50

I've just spent the last hour reading the Elan Press Release... :-D

I love the torque output of the SE...(It's gotta be a misprint)

does anyone have the Pics from section 10 or know what was in the polly pocket..

If you're on about the same document as I have, they're line drawing of the suspension raft and the poly pocket contains the menu for the evening.

Funny how the LOTUS lettering is different on the rocker cover. I thought it was just the bling brigade who modded theirs!

Well done for saving this thread with some decent pics! Shame Specky failed to do so whilst asking Sy for a favour. :mrgreen: :poke:

Comments on top picture:

1. Turbo boost gauge transducer is mounted 90 degrees away from the norm.
2. Despite it being a new engine/car the two main hoses still look shite!

Phil,
Assuming the darker colour used for "Lotus" is red, that's what mine looks like. As far as I'm aware it's as it was built - none of the last 2 owners were modders and I didn't do it. :?

Mine too. Looks like the lettering on the heatshield has been highlighted too.

I have had 4 Elans and an Engine and none were painted, maybe just the first and last ones?

If you are using a Microsoft computer, you should be able to right click on each picture and "save" it to your desktop or thumb drive or whatever. Then take it to a box store that does photo printing and have them print them?

I'm sure there is an Apple method as well and probably an android method as well.

I've tried printing it at home from the download but the picture is not very sharp and not quite the full size.

Maybe they shrunk due to age? :D

A decent photo print shop is much better than a home printer and they can be re-sized fairly easily.

This is a problem with the forum's limit in picture size. Too bad they didn't host the pictures elsewhere and just post the link in the post.

They're heavily compressed jpegs so best to ask Mike_H if he has any better quality ones. He was online this morning.
