Were just out to dinner in it. Went to a new (to us anyway) spot out in the marina. Was yummy.

:clap:
Looks great, Ekkers! Just curious - where did you (or Marie) source the grommet? It's much closer to the factory original than the one I bought from SJ a few years back.

I bought a genuine Lotus grommet (A100L0077F) a couple of years ago but think it was made when the Elan was in production. The rubber was very stiff and it didn't last long at all.

I found these work well - www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AUSTIN-HEALEY-SPRITE-MG-MIDGET-58-79-FUEL-TANK-NECK-RUBBER-GROMMET-AHA5445-/351234413642. Very cheap too. :D

Here's the US version... www.ebay.com/itm/New-MG-Midget-Ausin-Healey-Sprite-inc-Bugeye-Fuel-Filler-Neck-Grommet-/171443499148

Leave me alone, I think I know what I'm doing.
