The car is slowly getting there, a few delays as with most restoration.

I have been a bit slow with the updates due to work and life :roll:

Stunning. I hope to give my B3 similar treatment one day.
I dread to think how much this costs.

Really nice to see a car getting the love it deserves.

Good to see Elan
Are you going to restripe and add the side skirts as it was ? I think looks loads better without stripes but to keep original would need the side skirts

The badges on the front grill and boot is adequate for me so wasn’t planning on adding the stripes, at least not just yet.

I have been told that the side skirts were Sytner addition rather than Alpina so the original is as it is. I have the side skirts but not planning to have them fitted.

Just fantastic, huge commitment going on here Elan, and it's worth every nut and washer.

Who have you entrusted to do this work? I recall you mentioned someone called Barry?

Thanks. The work is being carried out by Barry (BSS here) from BMR performance.

I am hoping to upload more detailed pics when I have a bit of time.
