Hoops Update.

Hello All

Spoke to Simon SPC regarding collection of moulds and computery stuff with the information on . Unfortunately he was in Norway . He will be back soon for a few days and then moving to Japan. With that in mind myself and Mr Pink will need to move quickly .

So the news is that we will be on the move soon , undertaking the UK tour to collect and centralise all the known parts of the Hoop project.

Will update when that has been done and we know exactly what we have .

till then thank you for you interest and patients.

Great news. I currently find myself (by choice) between jobs/careers so might be able to help at short notice. Also an estate car if the 'stuff' will fit.

Let me know if you need a hand.

Hi all ,
Thank you for your ever growing list and ongoing interest in these hoops.

This weekend Pinky and i took a drive up to see Simon who passed over his knowledge and essential parts .
That means that 100% of the tooling needed is now under the LEC umbrella .

The only thing required now is for the jig which is kindly sitting John W's garden to be collected and dropped of at the fabricators .
In the mean time now that we have the original fabricator's details and we can commence with costings and timings .

As always we at LEC thank you for your interest in this group buy and until firm costs are known we appreciate that this is just an indicator of your interest .

Till then enjoy the sunshine .

Regards LEC team.

I will say thank you but the real star is Simon who has without financial recompense given this to us at LEC for the good of us and our heads . He used his knowledge as a Motorsport WRC Designer to create this . We are very lucky to have been gifted this and with his blessing we will take this forward .

Just to add/clarify/stick my oar in unwantedly (pick whichever you wish)....

.... This project is down to the hard graft of Clemo for pulling it all together, and the goodwill of many others who have played a part in securing the necessary parts to ensure future production -

BUT

It is unlikely to be a 'quick job' to have them built and ready to go, for a variety of reasons, some of which I will try to explain.

First, these items are 'always' likely to be referred to as "Kurching Hoops" (as opposed to "LGM Hoops" or any others which have been made/built/designed) - and as such we have more than a simple duty to Simon & LEC members to provide 'something similar'. They carry (see what I did there??) his name, so need to be fabricated in the same way that he was happy to build them originally - and that means trying to get the original fabricator to weld up the tubes which will be cut and bent by the original supplier. This may be as simple as a confirmatory phone call with instant agreement, or it may not, we may even need to find an alternative supplier/fabricator who Simon is happy can deliver the quality demanded - they WILL NOT be supplied in 'kit form' for a bloke in a shed to arc weld together.

So, it may take a while to get them up and running (subject to minimum numbers, quoted costs etc etc).

Then there is the issue with the fibreglass hood deck and fairings - we have the molds for them (not to be confused with anything about the hardtop!) - this is a 'simple' laminate process, but will need to be done properly. As Simon did his own in times gone by, we need to establish a supplier for these - if anyone wants them to go with their hoops.

Then there is the fitting.... each elan is different, but we have been supplied with a set of 'templates' for where to trim the fibreglass for adding the bars - obviously, the operative word is that it is a single set of templates, so can't be sent with every set of hoops - and if sent out to be returned (or sent to the next fitter) there is always the risk of being lost in transit, making life difficult - I am going to try to replicate them when I get time, so this may be a 'non-issue' anyway if it is simple enough.

I'm sure that there are other considerations too, but that's enough for now - the imortant thing is that progress is being made towards getting these made again.
Dave

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

Whenever I will get my hands on a complete set, and I was able to fit them according to Simon's standards, and was able to fit hem according to my standards and I am happy with the process of placing them, There is no reason why i would not be able to place some more here on the 'main' :-D land for an LEC friendly fee including feeding the LEC kitty 8)
