That's great news!

It just up the road from me, I'll remember that if I finally ever get round to getting a lotus!

The first proper drive was an incredible feeling! Even better after all the wheels were pointing in the right direction 😂

It’s still an ongoing project, but are these cars ever not?

I have been quietly working away at some issues.

Fitted a new in tank fuel pump from Spitfire to do away with the secondary pump and aged oem setup. Luckily someone had previously cut out the bulkhead for access so I didn’t need to drop the tank. I still had to remove the seats and Safety Devices cage for access.

Now a neater engine bay and no worries about running lean on full boost. Even have some head room for more power in the future if I wish

Water injection is worth a look. Might be considered old tech now though.

Nothing to update really I’m afraid. It’s been in hibernation so I’ve been working on finishing the garage.

Looking to get the silver honda Elise running now before Spring
