How Do!

Post by *ian_pez* » Tue Dec 29, 2015 11:00 pm

Evening all,

New member here from Bury Lancs.

I was going to buy an Elise and may still do so but I'm going to view an Elan +2 tomorrow.

I'll update this post if I decide to buy it, currently looking on the web for things to look out for when looking to buy one!

Bye for now.

Best thing you can buy now is some cream for your face to stop the wrinkle lines you get when grinning so much after you've bought one ;)

Morning all,
I didn't buy the Elan.

550 mile round trip and a disappointing result. Just a bit too much work to do on it and a couple off quite worrying cracks round the base of the front windscreen pillars.

I'll keep looking.

Best wishes for the new year to all.

Best to take your time, be fussy and get it right rather than diving in and buying a pup! Good luck on you quest.

Thanks all for making me feel welcome.

I'm currently trying to sort out getting my garage dry as it leaks in under the walls.

Once that's done I'll be looking more seriously :)

I suppose its about time I added some pics!

Bit of a mixture, but as you can see, the first few months of Elise ownership haven't gone exactly to plan!

I'll sort out a better album when I've sorted out the photos better.

Recent radiator change highlighted a few jobs for the winter :(
