Guys, I have done some research on the modified wheel arches on my car. Lotus told me, that they never offered nor licensed such a bodywork modification. So it appears that the work done on my car is in fact a 3rd party job and maybe even a one-of-a-kind one as well. I will attempt to contact the original owner of the car to find out who made the modification.

Here are some photos of how the car looks now with the spacers fitted. I like it a lot! :-D

I have to say they suit the Elan quite nicely, nice and plain looking and no over the top styling.

Nice one! :cheers:

:agree: I'm not usually a fan of aftermarket wheels, but they really do suit the car. Those flared arches are quite tastefully done too. :smt054
