In December two opportunities, to gather some more parts, arose.
One from a gentleman in town who I met through the Lotus Seven Enthusiasts group in PE. Ray was able to help me source the missing stanchions I needed, as the ones I had were badly pitted and believe it or not would cost more to have hard chromed and polished than sourcing a nice new pair, made in Taiwan. Part no: WW28943 (45-39668).
Along with the order came a set of clutch springs and copper washers.
A order was also coming through from Tri-Cor, so a couple of fiddly nuts and bolts were brought in as well as the chrome Horn Grille I had been missing.
At this stage I should have everything needed to assemble the front end - except the wheels arent built up yet!
