Very nice Jonny :wub:

Where did you get the xylan coating done - been considering some of that myself.

Lol all but the flywheel but it's in great condition Phil. 

Track Group Leigh, they had it done.

Hi, I've been a bit of a lurker on this thread and it's inspired me to get to work on my Elise. As a first step, I've cleaned out under the front clam and started to fit an Odyssey light weight battery. But the bracket I bought with it isn't going to work. Your bracket looks superb is there anywhere I can buy one? Or did you make and if you did could you please share the dimensions?

There is actually a little too much play in it for my liking so I'm going to have it remade at some point. You'll have to bare with me but I'll get two made.

Cheers, that'd be great. My own suspension rebuild is moving at a glacial pace so baring with you isn't going to be a problem.

So I finally got the car home today ready for the big rebuild but not before I had the dash painted.  The windscreen was showing it's mileage so a nice shiny new one went back on.

Loving the slatwall! Good idea! Plus this car continues to amaze me.

Looking amazing.

I'm with Lars. I reckon this and George's Exiges will be the two best built ones in the world. Certainly a 'slight' improvement on what Lotus did at the factory B)

Tar buddy.

Not sure if you remember, I had a load of stuff anodised including some blanking plates for the foot well and new floor panels kindly supplied by Mark. Fitted both blanking plates yesterday.  The passenger side I bolted using the extinguisher bracket and the drivers side I bonded using 3M VHB tape. Looks neat, certainly an improvement on Duck tape.  Floor panels will be one of the final jobs along with the rest of the interior I reckon.

Well that's a bit of a fun sucker, not sure what to do now. Probably the end of this thread :(
