Although I'm still not allowed to drive, thought I'd take the opportunity whilst the weather was ok and my shoulder is
feeling a lot stronger. Took the onsie off and rolled 'Merlot' out of the garage. Made the suttle change and rolled her
back in the garage and put the onsie back on. Plan is still to get MOT and service done mid/late April and taxed from
1st May. Have already booked some shows in May so looking forward to getting back on the road. :-D :-D

Surprised you don't have clear side repeaters to go with the clear front ones. It makes the car look more contemporary IMO and they are a very cheap addition - well, compared to the front ones anyway :?

Yeah - White looks much better on Silk Red too.

Was happy with original orange repeaters on my first Calypso Red/Pink (it faded) but when I replaced it with a Pacific Blue model they just had to go...

Got mine through ebay - £5.79 posted through my letterbox. Listed as fitting a Mini - they say 'Classic Mini' to distinguish it from that bloated lump that BMW call a 'Mini'..

Hi Trevor,

I just saw for the first time these nice pictures of your splendid M100. A rare colour I never saw in Holland. It was great that you joined 25th anniversary Elan M100 in Holland last November and probably we will meet again at the Lotus Festival at Brands Hatch in August.

The photographer who took this picture has been playing with some software and created this version of the above photo.

I've always liked the overdone HDR (high dynamic range) photo. It give a nice effect especially with a dramatic sky as well. You could have had a bit of fun and just posted the HDR photo and persuaded us that you'd just had the car 3M wrapped and did we all think it was worth the £2k cost.
Anyway makes a great looking car look even better.

Parked up nice and early today for our first show of 2015 at Faversham Transport Weekend.
Lovely day and good crowds. Photo taken early before the event was open hence nobody around :D

It would have been rude not too :!: A lovely crisp sunny day so she had to come out from under the onsie and go for a :burnout:
Then took these photo's on return. No wash or polish but still looking good seeing as it's been a few months since last taken
out as we have been away in Texas. (and before you ask NO it wasn't to visit our 'friend' there :lol: )

Plus these tyres need a workout before new one's are put on.
