Small Lotus Update 

64Mali Dec 16, 2017. 6 comments

So not much has happened in between all the holidays. Still waiting on parts to arrive from overseas so I can rebuild the suspension. Meanwhile to allow for storage of the car and for it not to be in the way my dad rigged up a electric car hoist. Short version an electric winch pulls up on the cables to lift the body or body/frame out of the way, its nice and simple when the car weighs next to nothing. Good news is I get to steal this to remove the body off my Mali come spring when he is finished the body work.

Enjoy the pictures

And yes the normal car fits underneath it.

Hi all and welcome back to the sporadic updates of the 1970 Lotus Europa. Good news the shipment from England finally arrive after much waiting. That meant the custom made windshield is now here.
