De-spoilered...

Postby Jamie N » Tue 17.10.2017, 21:03

Removed to clean up all the wee hard to reach bits, grease the captive nuts and put new bolts in, then it struck me... that looks weird as hell! , I can't recall ever seeing an Elan minus the spoiler before, don't realise how rounded the boot lid is until you see it without the spoiler, something about it reminded me of a Boxster ( but not in a good way :D ) .

Looks like you should craft on a pair of Cadillac fins to complete the look :D

I quite like the side view (Toyota MR2 mk 3 or 4 ????) but I bet it looks odd from the rear :?

A right click equivalent on a smarphone is usually a long left click (just keep your finger on the picture until a menu appears)

I find on iPad if you click 'post reply' and then 'expand view' at the bottom right if you scroll down to the original post you can see the whole picture (or most of it anyway). :D
