My New Toy

Postby Graaf » Wed 21.10.2015, 17:38

I've looking for an Elan M100 for a number of months now and must admit to seeing some dogs.

Eventually found this one which now decorates my garage

Thanks guys.

I've now got to try and stop myself from upgrading - probably a lost cause. Brake/master cylinder upgrade, re-chip, sports exhaust, etc, etc.

I hope to get the seats out over the winter and treat/recolour the leather, if I can find some information on it.

Cor, that looks like a nice one! Worth the wait I presume.
That looks like a rather nice exhaust already.
Getting the seats out is pretty easy (especially if you do it with the roof off).
Best to put some copper grease on the bolts while they're out, and watch out for the odd-sized spacer.
Striking fear into the hearts of duplicate posts everywhere...! :P

I've got the re-spaced plate in the boot but not sure if I dare use it!
