She is back home!

Some of you will already know but after 6 years in the hands of various people I decided to buy her back so AU55 now T26 CUP is back in my care.For those that don't know the car, make yourself a coffee and prepare to loose a couple of hours reading the build thread in post 1.

I thought long and hard about wether to extend this thread or just start afresh but decided that it would be good to keep everything I did this car in one place as a sort of rolling history.

First up will be to put some miles on her, me get used to a Lotus again (been a while since I had one) and to see what needs doing. So after what must be just over 3 years I am back in a Lotus and one that I built. This is going to be interesting......
Golf R (daily spec)
T6 (rebuild house spec)
Elise S2 260 (before Lotus)
Mk1 Escort (Still a bare shell spec)
Ducati Supersport S (:D )
Ducati Scrambler FT (Wife’s bike)

It'll probably need a wash.

Congrats, Mike!
