I've had her for 5 years, gradually doing bits and pieces on her but I'm now looking at really going to town, bottom front left it has some bodywork damage and the interior is looking a bit tired. The roof also need renewing

A pair of black S2000 seats would suit it nicely, not difficult to fit either :wink: .

Thanks for the advice, I'm not sure whether to try and get mine re-foamed and covered or as you say use s2000 ones instead. Also someone has made a right mess of removing the drivers side door coverings and glued them back on and got glue everywhere.

Refurbishing the seats is a great idea if you want to keep it Original Adrian, Its not cheap though (unless you have a friendly upholsterer or can do the work yourself), If you are happy to modify things to update old designs then the S2000 seats will possibly cost less than a refurb. I think generally most folks on LEC are quite happy with "updating" to modern stuff. Personally i would recommend the S2K seats, they are far more comfortable for sure. And there is another alternative here...viewtopic.php?f=39&t=24268 if you haven't seen it already.

The perfect colour for an Elan! Good luck and have fun with the work - she'll be going from good to great, I think.
