Mike,

I think what you have to realise is that it's not a lack of support from Elan owners but a much more limited marque, compare Elan sale figures to that of 911s, MGs and VWs... I bet as a proportion of cars manufactured the Elan sales of your ramps have far outweighed the others... but I understand that you are interested in units sold and as such the Elan owners will always be the poor relations.

BTW have you advertised them on LEF? or any other Lotus forums (e.g. Elise)?

Ailwyn...Sorry about not getting back to you..I have been away.

Yes I agree totally, on thinking about it! thanks for making that clear to me.

I am reluctant to post on other sites as I briefly tried it once..in a freindly helpful tone and got banned and blasted for spamming on on forum!!

Anyway..to catch up..we are going to visit some car servicing companies and see if they have a use for them...if say there proper ramps are full etc.

Also..we are thinkin about doing some car shows with a trade tent.

There are more versions on the way...we do some speacial drop on ladder extenders that give even lower angle of lift.

Also we are doing a system that lifts all four wheels off the ground so you can get right under the car.

Anyway, we are selling about four sets a week now which I am pleased with.

we make them in batches of twelve sets

all jigged up and mig welded. plus we spray paint them now....they are much squarer and more pro loong than the originals.

OK, thanks for the reply..the drop on ladders extensions are £40 for the pair, I will get a couple of pics through to you...but you won't need these for the elan.

The system for lifting all four wheels of the ground has not been fully developed yet.

I will post some more details when we have them

Oh..and the ramps are £99 per set with £25 delivery to LEC members

Hi John...that's great, I am pleased you like them. I am a little disappointed that we did not meet, I was hoping that you would have collected the ramps evening or weekend so we could chat. I believe my wife showed you our Elan though.

Yes, I was hoping to meet you too but I had a good chat with your wife and a look around your motor. I also had a look at your wife's track day YouTube video.
Now I know where you live, if I'm in that neck of the woods in my Lotus I'll give you a call.
