Excellent news!
You have a great weekend too.

And have fun at Retromobile. I’m sure that your Lotus stand will be great.

Really, have you not seen Colin's first attempts at building a Lotus? - :D
My sadly departed friends Richard Parker (Initially Rochdale Olympic) and Ron Hickman ( Workmate) both worked for Colin and had some amazing tales about his expectations and designs, but both transformed what a Lotus should and does look like.

I know the first car was based on a Austin 7 but i though he only used the chassis and running gear but i may be wrong.

That was the concept of most "Specials" the use of a chassis frame and the running gear, it was the bodywork that originally made the difference until companies such as Ballamy, Aquaplane etc got involved.
My Ford Special is E93a, std chassis frame, Ballamy high ratio diff, 16" commercial wheels, most transverse leaf springs removed, tuned 10hp sidevalve, std 3 speed gearbox, but critically a woven matt body (not chopped strand) which gave it lightness. Built 1954
