Just a 5 min job to put those interior pieces in!....5 hours later? ๐Ÿ˜†

Looking nice, the yellow matches the Lotus badge.

The cogs turned...apply WD40!

Ready for the show ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

When does a 5 min job ever takes less than 5 hours?

At my age I bath in wd40 ...

Yup show season picking up pace ( better finish all the jobs I keep making for myself)

In last couple of months I have had to replace :

Clutch
Brake master cylinder
Coil
Fuel pump ( wasnโ€™t dead but flow wasnโ€™t good, was replaced trying to trace bad running issues)

All these were the original items from factory , all lasted 48 years !!!!

Granted the car has only done 30,000 but itโ€™s still impressive
