Rebuilding story :

As soon as the car was registered in Belgium, we received the numberplates as an oldtimer.

The smoke, oil leaks and noise decide us to dismantle the car and to rebuild engine , dash and chassis.

A big job! and not done within one day , but the challange.

Removing wheels and engine, and finally removing everything that was possible.

The chassis cleaned and repainted were needed.


The dashoard and electrical wiring where all rebuilded.

The engine and gearbox rebuilded and painted and ready to fit.

And 3 months later.... the Lotus was ready for the road !
