    Lotus mk1 cortina restoration

    Thanks a lot to Colin Ginn for having the afternoon off from his busy workshop and collecting the car with me,then delivering it 60 miles away to my workshop.
    Colin has original new front wings and complete front panel for the car for me.
    I will be stripping the rest of the car as soon as I get time,Then my favourite job of scraping off underseal from the under side.
    Then its back to Clacton to Colins workshop for blasting and he is paneling this one up for me.One because I will never get round to it and two,he is the master of the mk1 Lotus.
    Then he will be dropping it off to me to prep and paint it.
    Ive wanted one of these for 40 years and finaly got one.I have 95% of the parts with the car

    a bit premature but if you need the correct steering wheel my mate has one on his garage wall which he,d probably part with if you need it.always loved these too!
