Rubber sheet in an S2? I thought that was only done during S1 production. 

I thought it was an S1 thing too.   Maybe Lotus had some rubber sheet left over 😆

I really must get back to getting this car sorted.

I finally managed to get the interior done at last. The seat frames took some real modifications to clear the gear surround and I also some of the new lotus anti Rock spring steel shims (which work). I had to strip the runner down, clean and re grease to get a nice movement but I was still 2mm to far over to the passenger side. Instead of slackening the bolts holding the gear leaver mech and seeing what we had to play with I took one of the seatbelt spacers out and machined a new one 2mm shorter , still retaining the 45 degree internal chamfer that the shoulder bolt locks against. Hey presto job done.

Spitfires, pro alloy bits, sports cat and a full service next. Oh the joy.
