I'm pleased to be the new owner of 7213. The prior owner had the car from 1985 and it was registered in March 1969.

It needs a full restoration, so I thought I'd post pictures as it goes..

So what comes next.. i think the petrol tank will be first to get attention.

Also i want to cut back the paint to see if i can get anything. Otherwise John Campbell used a roller to apply Rustoleum. After a couple of coats, he sanded back, then put on a few more coats and then polished. It came out good.. so I try the bonnet and the panel in front. Ferrari Rosso refld if I can get some.

I don't like the dash so hopefully Mike Brown helps me with a cool one.

Lotus colours not sure if it works or not but I've seen an awful lot worse. Couple of weekends and that'll be ready to go.

Cheers Mike, Do you have any hints on exhaust?
As loud as possible as it doesn't need MOT and we want people to hear the car, as they wont see it..

I think i found exhaust ...
Richard Porter on FB said... "On foggy it's Maniflow throughout (came as seven bits in a sack) ... exits RHS... "

So from MiniSpares:
C-ARA339 - MANIFLOW VAN AND PICKUP T...                     117.00
C-AEG376 - MANIFOLD LCB EXHAUST STAG...                     92.80
                                                                               251.76

It looks like this 5 bits though.. & I need to look at what is on car now...

Looks like you have a rear anti roll bar on the MM as well.
What sort of condition is it in and do you have any photos or close ups you could post.
From what can be seen of it looks like it could be one of the Speedwell anti-roll bars offered as an option on the MM.
Regards
Gary
